West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie admits he may consider a summer move but insists it is not a priority.

The Nigeria international has bagged 14 goals in his debut Premier League campaign after signing from Lokomotiv Moscow last summer as the Baggies near a top-half finish.

The 29-year-old's form has led to interest from Juventus plus rival Premier League clubs, but Odemwingie will only move on if he feels it is necessary.

"Every player will consider a bigger move because progression is very important," he told Sky Sports News.

"If a top ten team in Europe offers any player a contract I think he will listen to it. If it comes and the club are happy I might give it a think. "

Quotes of the week

"If you're a footballer, going to a higher level is always the target, you always want to be at the highest.

"If a top 10 team in Europe offers any player a contract I think he will listen to it. If it comes and the club are happy I might give it a think.

'Priority'

"But, as I say, that's not my priority, my head is here and I'm really happy, of course I will think twice because I'm performing here and I feel great.

"So, I might end up saying 'no' to any offer that comes if I'm not sure that I'll be as happy as I am at West Brom."

After stints in France and Russia, Odemwingie admits the Premier League proposed a step up in class, but he suggests he has not yet exceeded his own expectations from his debut season.

He added: "I knew it was a difficult league to play in. Still, though, I'm an ambitious person and I set myself a target of 15 (goals).

"At the beginning of the season that may have seemed too ambitious for your first season in the Premier League, but now I'm close to getting that."
