JUVENTUS appears to be leading the race to sign West Brom's in-form forward, Peter Odemwingie in the summer.
The Serie A side had sent scouts to watch the Nigerian international in recent weeks following his fine form for the Baggies this season.
Odemwingie, who only cost £1million last summer, has been a revelation in the Premier League, scoring 11 goals in just 27 appearances to help West Brom steer clear of the relegation zone.
Manager Roy Hodgson admitted recently that he would face a fight to keep hold of the hitman should a club come in with a big offer, and reports say Juventus is preparing a bid in the region of £8million.
Such has been his form that the Baggies may want more for the 29-year-old than that while several other Premier League sides may also be lining up bids over the close season.
