Arsenal legend to get inside track on Tottenham, Liverpool transfer target Berahino?

Saido Berahino

Arsenal's Ian Wright could be invited to work with Saido Berahino of West Brom.

West Brom's Saido Berahino continues to enjoy a dream season, scoring eight goals in 11 games in all competitions.

Six goals in the last five games has led to calls for a England call-up, and seen him linked with transfers to both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

However it is a legendary goalscorer at Arsenal who is likely to get the inside track on the youngster, in Ian Wright.

West Brom boss Alan Irvine told last week how he felt Berahino reminded him of the second highest Arsenal goalscorer of all time, and would even like to bring him into the club to work with him.

He is quoted by The Mail: "‘I have spoken to Saido and said that Ian and I have chatted about him. If I feel Saido could do with a little bit of extra help, I might well (ask Wright to help out). I would be frightened what he might do with him!

"Saido has got great potential and at 21 Ian was raw. But he had real potential, what he did was kept on working at his game."

Right now, Berahino is not showing any signs of needing assistance, with his prolific form making him the top scoring Englishman in the top flight.

Yet Irvine is clearly conscious of his need to focus and not get carried away, and bringing Wright in can help him realise that he still has a lot to learn. He will just have to stop him tapping him up for a move to Arsenal.
