Peter Odemwingie fits bill for Swansea - says Laudrup
MICHAEL Laudrup has admitted Peter Odemwingie fits the bill as Swansea City’s search for a striker heads into the final week of the transfer window.
Laudrup watched his team fire a blank at Tottenham Hotspur yesterday as Roberto Soldado’s penalty condemned Swansea to their second defeat of the season.
And the Swansea manager then hinted that West Brom outcast Odemwingie is a strong option as he bids to add one last player to his new-look squad.
The Evening Post revealed back on June 11 that Laudrup was keen on the 32-year-old Nigerian international, who is surplus to requirements at the Hawthorns.
And there are now suggestions that Swansea have tabled an offer of close to £2 million for Odemwingie, who is also interesting Stoke and Cardiff.
“We want to add one more who can give us that in a certain part of the game or in certain games,” Laudrup said.
“And he (Odemwingie) is a player with pace who knows the league.
