Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has admitted that he is interested in bringing out of favour West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie to the Liberty Stadium, Sky Sports reports.

Odemwingie is out of favour at West Brom after being told he will not feature in manager Steve Clarke’s plans.

The striker fell out of favour at the Hawthorns after he tried to force through a move to QPR in the January transfer window and has been linked with a move away from the club all summer.

Laudrup is looking for another striker that will add to his attacking options this season and is thinks Odemwingie is exactly the type of player that he is looking for.

“We want to add one more who can give us that in a certain part of the game or in certain games,” Laudrup told the South Wales Evening Post

“And he (Odemwingie) is a player with pace who knows the league.”

The Dane will face plenty of competition for the strikers signature, with the likes of newly promoted Crystal Palace and Cardiff City keen on the Nigerian.

West Brom are hoping that they can sell Odemwingie before the transfer window closes as it would enable them to lower their wage bill.
