West Brom have slapped an £8 million price tag on the head of Peter Odemwingie to ward away potential suitors the Daily Mail understands.
Interest in the Nigerian striker has rose considerably in the past week or so with Wigan having a £4 million bid rejected.
Tottenham have also been credited with an interest with Harry Redknapp searching for a striker to freshen up his front line.
The Nigerian international scored 15 goals in his debut campaign and won a ton of admirers with his work ethic and predatory finishing.
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is looking to spend the money raised from Charles N’Zogbia’s sale to capture the 30-year-old hitman.
The Latics are painfully stretched up front with and need a regular goal scorer if they are to maintain their Premier League status.
It is thought Odemwingie is open to leaving the Hawthorns after talks over a new contract stalled.
However the Baggies valuation of the striker is almost certain to put Martinez off making a bid, which would eat up a large portion of the N’Zogbia cash.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is also likely to switch his attentions away from the Baggies striker with £8 million for a player of his age considered too much.
