After seeing a bid of £850,000 rejected for West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie, United Arab Emirates club Al Nasr are to make an improved offer for the unsettled Nigerian frontman, according to Sky
The second bid by Al Nasr, who have already signed Aston Villa midfielder Brett Holman this summer, is thought to be around £1.5m. Despite several Premier League clubs expressing an interest, Al Nasr appear to be the front-runners for Odemwingie’s signature.
West Brom would be happy to sell the 32-year-old but only if their asking price is met. However, there will be talks between the two club’s respective chairmen this week, as they look to find a quick resolution.
Odemwingie fell out of favour at the Hawthorns during the second half last season after he attempted to force a move to Queens Park Rangers on transfer deadline day in January, going as far as to drive to Loftus Road, and publically state his intentions with a series of posts on Twitter.
Since February, Odemwingie has only made a handful of substitute appearances, and now his West Brom career, in which he has scored 31 goals in 90 appearances in all competitions, looks about to come to an end.
