Watford Striker Odion Ighalo has urged his club to make a move for national team mate Mikel Obi, suggesting the Chelsea midfielder would be a superb addition to the Hornets.
The Super Eagles' captain is yet to feature this season for Chelsea and the midfielder might be out of the club as soon the transfer window resumes in January.
Chelsea's manager Antonio Conte has recently insisted on his desire to keep the player at the club citing the need for fresher legs as the season takes its toll on his current starters.
But for Odion Ighalo, a player who has also seen himself get few minutes, is eager to have Mikel join him at Vicarage road.
“I would like it if Mikel joined me at Watford. Ighalo said on Supersport programme, Fan Zone.
“He is my captain at the national team. Apart from that he is a very good player, very talented.”
“There is no team in the Premier League that will not want to have such a player.”
“I am happy I have played with him so I will be very happy to have him in my team.”
Watford would have to put up a fight to grant Ighalo his desires with reports of Man Utd, Marseille, Valencia, and Andre Villas-Boas' Shanghai SIPG looking to snap up the midfielder.
