Spurs target priced at £8m

West Brom have named their asking price for Odemwingie

By | 16th August 2011

West Bromwich Albion have slapped an £8 million price tag on Peter Odemwingie. The Nigerian striker was a big hit during his first season in the Premier League, and have already rejected a £4 million bid from Wigan Athletic.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Odemwingie is available for £8 million, a price which may put off Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp, who is rumored to be interested in the striker/winger.

Tottenham are still looking for dynamic attacking options following their disappointing fifth placed finish last season. With a few more pieces they could find themselves back in the Champions League, as nearest rivals Liverpool and Arsenal both looked unconvincing in their opening Premier League fixtures.

The departure of Robbie Keane has left room for one more attacking-minded players, and coupled with the injury of Steven Pienaar keeping the South African out for six weeks, Odemwingie would likely feature in the starting eleven.

Odemwingie has made no secret of his desire to leave Hawthornes, and despite Wigan’s interest a move to White Hart Lane is undoubtedly his preferred option.

Would Odemwingie do well at White Hart Lane? Have your say below!

    Uninspiring Overpriced and over the hill.
    Not a signing of a team hoping to finish in the top 4 and challenge for the title.

    ARE YOU ALL FECKING CRAZY AT WHL A TOTAL OUT AND OUT GOAL SCORER IN ROBBIE KEANE GO`S FOR A MISERABLE £3,000,000 AND WBA WANT £8,000,000 FOR A SO CALLED STRIKER WHO SCORES IN EVERY 5 TO 7 GAMES WHO IS HE ! AND ARE WE SPURS EVEN CONSIDERING A DOLOP LIKE THIS WBA SO CALLED STRIKER WISE UP SPURS WE WANT CLASS !

    The West Brom chairman (Jeremy Peace) is a stickler for negotiations (a la Levy) but I suppose a fee of around £7-9m for a 30-year old with 2 years left on his contract is fair (1 year comes from invoking a contract extension clause). Perhaps they might entertain a straight swap for Crouch ?

    Id say at 8million we have to take a gamble! If he only does half as well at spurs as he did last campaign then it would still be money well spent. He’s 30 not 35! Could well go on to have another 3 or 4 great yeears left in him! You only have too look at Giggs to see what is possible! SNap there arm off – even at 10m its worth it! Please Levy, you know it makes sense! A perfect ‘Arry signing!

    “Odemwingie has made no secret of his desire to leave the Hawthornes” its Hawthorns actually, never mind, where are you taking this “quote” from? The only statement Odem has made this window is that he is happy at Albion, and would only consider moving for a bigger club in Europe!

    8million a bit steep for a 30yr old but just think he could be worth a risk, he had a great season with west brom last year stick him in a team with bale lennon supplying crosses he could have a fantastic season. Who am i kidding spurs sign a striker not gonna happen is it?

  7. tim says:

    i would buy him, i have been impressed with him since he arrived in the premiership, and he is better than the strikers we have now, and with the service he will get from our midfield, and wingers, he will be even better, lets take a chance, he is worth 8 million.
