Odion Ighalo: Set sights on move to England

Striker keen to secure move to Premier League

Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo has set his sights on winning a move to the Premier League this summer.

Ighalo is currently on loan at Spanish side Granada after finding his first-team chances limited at Udinese.

The 23-year-old , who was Granada's top scorer last season, has caught the eye again this season and a number of clubs across Europe are thought to be keeping tabs on his progress.

Swansea and Wigan are both thought to be weighing up moves for the skilful forward and Ighalo believes he would be perfectly suited to the style of football in England.

"I would be very happy to play in England and it is a dream for most players to play in the Premier League," Ighalo told Sky Sports.

"It has been one of my dreams to come to England and I hope that can happen this summer.

"I have heard some clubs are interested in signing me and we will see what happens at the end of the season.

"I think my style of football would be suited for England and I think I could be a success there.

"I have played in Italy and Spain, but England is where is want to go and play having heard so many good things about playing there."
