Arsenal are set to face stiff competition from West Ham in the race to sign Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo from Watford this summer.

The 27-year-old Nigerian international has been in sensational form since moving to Watford, scoring 20 goals in the Championship last season, and continuing the form with 14 goals and 3 assists in 31 league appearances in his maiden Premier League campaign.

The poacher who has scored important goals for the club including the opener against Arsenal in the quarter finals of the FA Cup has attracted the interest of the top clubs including Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United –All of whom he has scored against– who are all keen to add him to their ranks.

Now, West Ham –another London club- have indicated interest in the striker whose club has already resigned to losing this summer and have already identified his replacement.

Watford are prepared to sell and reports have it that Ighalo is valued around £20million by his club, which is a decent price for such a player in the current transfer market.
