Owngoalnigeria.com have been reliably informed that Patrick Bastianelli who claims to be the agent of Watford star Odion Ighalo, is not the agent of the Nigerian.

Bastianelli has claimed that Napoli are keen to push through a deal for Ighalo as a replacement for Arkadiusz Milik, whose season ended after he suffered a serious knee injury.

He however claimed that Watford are not keen on letting the forward go, hence it is very unlikely the move will happen, during an interview with Radio Marte.

Owngoalnigeria.com reported his interview yesterday but we have been reliably told that there’s no truth in Napoli’s interest in Ighalo and Bastianelli doesn’t represent the 26 year old.

” His agent is Atta Aneke and not Bastianelli, and I can confidently tell you, that there’s no way Ighalo is going back to Italy. He loves it in England and that is why he snubbed a big money move to China before the start of last season” Aneke’s close pal told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” For now Italy is not on the cards for Ighalo. Remember he only recently signed a contract extension. So he is focused on giving his best to Watford and not on a move away”.
