Arsene Wenger is stepping up his interest in £20million-rated Watford forward Odion Ighalo.

They have identified 26-year-old Ighalo as one of the strikers at the top of their shortlist for summer strikers.

Gunners boss Wenger wants to strengthen his strike force and it will not necessarily mean an established superstar signing.

Wenger believes they have strength in depth with Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck who can all play through the middle.

But he does want a centre forward and the club are keeping close tabs on Ighalo who is becoming a hot property.

Watford may have to sell if they can an offer of around £20m and Arsenal, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid have all looked at the Nigerian forward.

They are already looking at Granada striker Isaac Success as a potential replacement.

Mirror Sport revealed back in December Arsenal’s interest and they have also looked at Celta Vigo’s Nolito as they look to bolster their squad.
