Tottenham will sign West Brom’s England Under-21 striker Saido Berahino for £15m in the next 48 hours.
That is what is being reported in today’s Sunday Express, the paper claims that Berahino will snub any offers from West Brom to double his £15,000-a-week wages after setting his heart on joining Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
The West Brom striker has previously played with Harry Kane on numerous occasions at England Under-21 level and is the perfect foil for the big Spurs front man in the eyes of the Tottenham hierarchy the report goes on to suggest.
Berahino scored 14 goals for West Brom last season and there is no doubt that we need to bring in another forward to contribute towards the goal tally, rather than just relying on Kane. If we are to break back into the top four we need two prolific strikers.
The futures of Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado still remain up in the air. Adebayor has been heavily linked with a move to Aston Villa, while it’s best for all parties concerned if Soldado tries to get his career back on track elsewhere.
