West Brom stiker Wings in

In the news today:

The Daily Mail are at it again and have come up with a new name linked to Arsenal this morning. That is the name of  Peter Odemwingie, 29, who has enjoyed a flourishing first season in the Premiership with West Brom.

Odemwingie came to fame in his three year stint with French side, Lille. He spearheaded their campaign through the Champions League, facing rivals Manchester United in 2006/7.

Since then, he enjoyed a spell in Russia with Lokomotiv Moscow before joining West Brom on a two year deal last summer.

With just a year to run on that deal and the years catching up with the Nigerian, you would imagine that if this move could happen, he’d be very interested. With a fee of just £4m being speculated, it certainly wouldn’t break the bank if he were to come in an partner Robin van Persie in the Arsenal attack.

    Don't get me wrong, I think this guy could do a job for us… but, if Wenger is only going to bid £4m for him, it would be completely disrespectful to the Baggies and would get, rightfully, rejected. I think £6 – 7m would be a bargain. I'd prefer Jermaine Defoe though.

    This would be a good move for Arsene. He can provide cover on the wing and up front. He's a proven goalscorer in the EPL and why should Arsenal mind about him being towards the end of his career when the squad is so young. It's not as if anyone else will be retiring any time soon. His goal return playing for West Brom was superb and he has earnt a chance to play for a top club. The fact that he has one year left on his contract and is 28 is a great advantage. Those who want Benzema, Falcao or Higuain should consider two things. Firstly none of those players would play second-fiddle to RvP and secondly even if we do tempt them from their clubs the price will lead to us being financially restricted in our negotiations for players in more crucial positions.
