There are a few stories surfacing concerning West Bromwich Albion’s Peter Odemwingie this morning and while we briefly touched on the striker in the early part of the summer, the general consensus was to stay well away.
Overall, there are two ways of looking at the player – at present he is 30 and will cost, if you believe the rumours, a fee in the region of £8m. As we’ve already heard in the case of Scott Parker, Harry isn’t prepared to pay that kind of money for a player with no resale value and that alone could kill any deal before it even gets off the ground.
According to reports the only other team interested is Wigan who have offered just £4m and maybe that says all you need to know about these stories.
One the other hand, after averaging less than a goal every three games in his early career, Odemwingie has pulled that up to just under one in two in a poor side at West Brom. Given better service therefore, you might expect that to improve.
With that in mind, would the pursuit of Peter Odemwingie be such a bad option for Spurs?
