Odion Ighalo set to return to Europe

Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo is set to make a comeback to Europe as AS Monaco and Getafe are said to be interested in his services.

Ighalo, who joined Al Hilal from Al Shabab in January, has been in inspiring form for the Saudi Arabian side since moving.

The 32-year-old last played for a European side when he signed on loan for English Premier League giants, Manchester United, from Chinese club, Shanghai Shenhua in the 2020/21 season.

According to Sky Sports, Ighalo has one year left to run on his Al Hilal contract, and the Saudi club has an option to extend for a further year.

The Nigerian striker is now attracting interest from the French Ligue 1 side, AS Monaco, and Spanish La Liga club, Getafe.

Monaco hopes to use UEFA Champions League football to lure Ighalo to join the Monégasques as it presently lies in the fourth spot in the league, which guarantees a spot in Europe’s elite club football competition.
