West Brom have reportedly rejected a £850,000 bid from Middle Eastern club Al Nasr for forward Peter Odemwingie, and will have to meet the Baggies’ valuation of the player if they are to complete a deal, according to Sky Sports.
The Nigerian attacker is currently not in the first-team plans this season, as the Nigerian is training with the reserves instead of in Austria, where the pre-season tour for the Baggies first team has started.
The striker has been linked to multiple clubs this summer, including the likes of Crystal Palace, Hull, and Swansea, but the club was yet to receive an official bid for the Nigerian man until the offer made by Al Nasr.
At 32-years-old the striker is likely looking to extend his first-team career for a few more seasons after featuring in sides such as French outfit Lille and Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow, scoring a total 102 goals in 13 seasons as a professional footballer.
The 2012/2013 season did not go so smoothly for the Nigerian man, who started a tirade on his Twitter account about West Brom’s downfalls, stating that they were “reaching into his pocket,” and that he desired a move away from the English club.
On transfer deadline day last February, Odemwingie traveled to QPR’s Loftus Road, where he tried to sign for the English outfit, but was told to leave after their offer had been rejected, and was disciplined by the English club for his actions and public tirade. Odemwingie later apologized for both.
