Ighalo to replace Jackson?

Atletico Madrid are reportedly chasing Watford striker Odion Ighalo as Tottenham Hotspur are the latest club to be linked with Jackson Martinez.

According to the Daily Mirror, Spurs are keen on landing another out-and-out centre forward to complement Harry Kane and have set their sights on the Colombian.

Injuries and poor form have limited Jackson’s impact at the Santiago Calderon since his €35m transfer from Porto in the summer, but Tottenham still believe he can form a deadly partnership with Kane.  

Fichajes.net, meanwhile, is claiming that Atleti will swoop for ex-Granada man Ighalo if Jackson moves on.

The Nigerian has scored 25 League goals this calendar year – the most in English football – and Los Colchoneros are understood to be ready to exploit their cordial working relationship with Quique Pina, who oversees Pozzo-owned clubs Udinese, Granada and Watford.
