Barcelona Sensationally Linked With Chinese Super League Star

Barcelona Sensationally Linked With Chinese Super League Star

Is another Chinese Super League star on his way to Barcelona?!

Barcelona snapped up ex-Spurs midfielder Paulinho in 2017 following a prolific spell at Guangzhou Evergrande. Though, surprisingly, he left the club after just one season returning to China.

But Barcelona could be securing the services of yet another Chinese Super League player in the shape of Odion Ighalo.

Yes, THAT Odion Ighalo.

According to Spanish outlet SPORT, the La Liga club are keeping tabs on a 'low-cost' No.9 as cover for Luis Suarez ahead of the second half of the season.

And Ighalo is an option. The Nigeria international is attracting plenty of interest with a few clubs eyeing him up including Premier League side Southampton.

Alvaro Morata signed for Chelsea in 2017 for £60 million, and it's fair to say he's flopped.

Among the other January-striker-merry-go-round stories, Chelsea want Gonzalo Higuain and China's top flight could welcome West Ham United's Marko Arnautovic.
