Arsene Wenger is considering a move for West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie.

The Arsenal boss dropped his interest last summer after the Baggies slapped a £8m price tag on the 30-year-old.

The Nigerian international pledged his future to West Brom by signing a new three-year contract despite interest from Tottenham and Wigan.

Odemwingie also snubbed a January switch to mega-rich Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala.

But Wenger could make a fresh move for Odemwingie, who has netted 10 goals this season, as the Gunners seek to bolster their attacking options.

Odemwingie scooped the Premier League player of the month award for February.

He scored five goals in February, including a hat-trick in the 5-1 Black Country derby win over Wolves at Molineux.

Odemwingie added two more in last weekend’s 4-0 win over Sunderland to win the prize for the third time.

After 15 Premier League goals last term, Odemwingie made a slow start this season, scoring five times in 21 games.

But he has doubled that tally in the space of just two matches.
