Arsenal’s pursuit of West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie has stalled.

Reports surfacing today that the Nigeria international turned down an offer from Arsenal are wide of the mark.

Arsenal made an enquiry to West Brom but were told that they would have to offer in excess of the £4million that the Gunners are willing to pay for a player that has only 1 year remaining on his contract.

As first reported by wearethenorthbank.com 3 weeks ago, Odemwingie, 29, is seen as an ideal target to add strength in depth to an attack that is heavily reliant upon Robin van Persie.
