Striker reveals Swans link
Udinese striker Odion Ighalo claims Swansea are showing an interest in him and says a move to the Premier League would appeal.
Michael Laudrup has been busy since taking charge of the Swans when adding three new players and reports claim that the highly-rated Ighalo could be his next capture. The Swans boss is known to be in the hunt for a new striker and Ighalo is a player he knows all about after spending much of the last three seasons on loan with Spanish outfit Granada. The 23-year-old says a host of clubs in the Premier League are keen but he could favour Swansea after admitting he would like to link up with Laudrup at the Liberty Stadium. "My agent has told me that there are a few clubs interested in me and hopefully something will happen shortly," Ighalo said. "I'm still a Udinese player, so it is up to them whether I am allowed to join on loan or leave permanently, but I believe that if a reasonable offer is made they will let me go. "One of the clubs that I have heard are interested is Swansea because the coach there knows me from my time in Spain. Michael Laudrup was in charge of Mallorca last season and so he knows me and has already brought a few Spanish-based players in already with Michu and Jonathan De Guzman. "Laudrup would be a good coach to play for because of the way he approaches the game and the challenge of playing in England would be great."
