Should we move for Odemwingie

As bright Irish forward Shane Long is about to complete his 8 million pound transfer to West Brom, is now an appropriate time to make a move for Peter Odemwingie?

Odemwingie in action for West Brom

We have been linked to the pacey Nigerian on occasions throughout the summer, and after scoring 15 goals in his debut season, he would be excellent back up for Robin Van Persie.

Since Odemwingie only has one year left on his contract - although West Brom have the option to extent it for another year - he would be available at a cut down price.

Although he is verging on 30 years of age, the Nigerian will bring plenty of experience to our young squad, and he boasts an impressive goals to game ratio at all of his previous clubs.

His pace is enough to threaten any teams defence, as Arsenal found out on multiple occasions last season, and I think he'll be great back up maybe even better than Chamakh who looks completely off the boil.

What do you think though, is he good enough to sign for Arsenal? Is he better than Chamakh? Will we sign him or not? Leave a comment and tell me your opinion.
