Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, is set to join Al Hilal from Al Shabab.

Italian football expert, Fabrizio Romano, confirmed this on Saturday via his verified Twitter page.

According to him, Ighalo has agreed personal terms with Al Hilal on a contract until June 2023.

“Al Hilal are set to sign former Watford and Man United striker Odion Ighalo. Agreement reached on personal terms, contract until June 2023.

“Final details and the official announcement in place. Ighalo will be Al Hilal replacement for Gomis,” Romano wrote.

Ighalo has been at Al Shabab since February 2021, after signing a two and a half years deal.

The Saudi Arabian club recently blocked the 32-year-old from representing Nigeria at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Super Eagles interim coach, Austin Eguavoen, then claimed the Confederation of African Football (CAF) blocked him from calling up a replacement for the player.
