Nigeria international Odion Ighalo is ready to leave relegated Chinese side Changchun Yatai.
The Super Eagles goal poacher netted 21 goals last season, but could not help Changchun Yatai avoid relegation from the Chinese Super League.
Ighalo has said he would rather leave the club in search of top flight football, but understands his fate is mostly in his own hands.
“Playing in the second division is not in my plans, so I need to weigh my options well,” he told BBC Sport.
“There’s the African Cup of Nations next year to think about and I need to keep playing at a highly competitive level.
“I don’t know yet about my future. I cannot make a hasty decision so I’ll use the next few weeks to decide.
“I have been getting direct calls from different agents and clubs, but now enjoying my Christmas break with the family and it is the job of my agent to speak to them.”
Ighalo is a wanted man having netted 36 goals in 55 appearances for Changchun Yatai since his €23.3m move to the club from Watford in 2017.
The prolific striker has featured for Lyn Oslo, Udinese, Cesena, Granada and Watford in his professional career abroad.
