According to The Daily Mail, Wenger has stepped up his interest in West Bromwich striker Peter Odemwingie. With the 29 year old’s contract expiring at the end of next season, the Baggies are naturally trying to sign the Nigerian international on a new contract, but reports from Nigeria claim that Odemwingie has been approached by the Gunners and is interested in Champions League football.
With Odemwingie bagging 15 goals this season, he has definitely helped maintain West Brom’s status among the English elite and climb to an impressive 11th place finish. However will he be as efficient at Arsenal? He could compliment Van Persie nicely as an out and out striker, allowing RVP to play just behind him..
