West Ham United are looking to capitalise on the failure of Crystal Palace and Fulham in securing Peter Odemwingie’s signature, according to The Times.
The out of favour West Brom striker was rumoured to be on the verge of moves to Ian Holloway’s side and Martin Jol’s side, but both fell through.
That has left the door open for Sam Allardyce to add some panache alongside Andy Carroll.
West Ham have turned their attentions to the Nigerian, having failed to agree terms with the former Chelsea striker Kalou – who reportedly wanted assurances of a starting role within the Hammers attack for next season.
Odemwingie is now deemed surplus to requirements at the Hawthorns, having tried to engineer a move away from West Brom back in January, and with the Baggies closing in on a loan move for Matej Vydra it appears that West Ham will have no obstacles in acquiring his services.
