West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie is set to open talks over a new deal, to help quell speculation about a possible move to Arsenal or Chelsea, according to Goal.com.
After scoring 15 goals in his first season in English football, the Nigerian international has attracted plenty of attention from the likes of Juventus and Chelsea.
But the striker is set to begin talks over a new deal at the Hawthorns, to dismiss talk of a move to Arsenal, the favourites to lang Odemwingie, or Chelsea.
His representative David Omigie said: "West Brom are saying they want to keep Peter and agree a new deal and they know Peter is happy there so hopefully all parties can come to an agreement."
Odemwingie said: "A few days ago, I was supposed to have a meeting with the West Brom leadership on the current contract. However, it did not take place and the meeting has been rescheduled for the next couple of days (with his representative)."
Omigie went on to add: "When top clubs like Arsenal or Chelsea show interest in you it is flattering."
"It is a big opportunity to play for a club in the Champions League and it is something any player would have to consider."
As well as fighting for Odemwingie, Arsenal and Chelsea are also fighting it out for Romelu Lukaku, who is set to leave Anderlecht.
