5 goals in 7 games: Tottenham Hotspur want 21-year-old forward in Jan

According to reports in Saturday's press, Mauricio Pochettino will look to fortify his forward line by targeting West Bromwich Albion star.

West Bromwich Albion and England Under-21 star is a wanted man.

According to tomorrow's edition of The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is set to give the green-light to a winter window swoop for the 21-year-old forward.

Berahino has been in hot form this season as he has scored three goals from four appearances as a forward and a brace from one outing as an attack-minded central midfielder, with two other appearances on the right flank.

Berahino is also an accomplished passer of the football as he is accurate with 90% of his passes and has already produced five goal-scoring opportunities.

The forward took his club form to the international stage as, earlier this evening, he teamed up well with Spurs hotshot Harry Kane to help down the Croatia Under 21s by a 2-1 score at Molineux having battled back from going a goal down.

Tottenham are currently light when it comes to prolific centre forward options and only have Emmanuel Adebayor, Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane as recognised potential starters.

Berahino could feasibly be fast-tracked into the first team.
