Report: West Brom to only move for Chelsea's Patrick Bamford if Saido Berahino is sold

West Brom - The Hawthorns

The former Nottingham Forest youngster has been linked with West Brom, as well as Aston Villa, Newcastle and Sunderland.

Bamford has been linked with making a move to West Brom, but a report in the Express and Star has claimed that they will only make a move for him should Saido Berahino be sold.

The Daily Mail reported on interest in Bamford from Aston Villa, whilst the same media outlet also claimed that the former Nottingham Forest youngster is also wanted by Newcastle and Sunderland.

With Chelsea keen on sending Bamford out on loan to continue his development, it is likely that a Premier League move is set to be completed.

The young striker spent the 2014/15 season on loan at Middlesbrough, impressing in the Championship and winning the second division Player of the Year award. The 21-year-old netted 19 goals and registered seven assists in 44 games across all competitions, and earning race reviews as Boro just missed out on promotion.

With all the Premier League interest, he is sure to secure a move to the Premier League, and all the interested parties have different cases as to why they should sign him.

Newcastle, Sunderland and Aston Villa can all offer him consistent first-team football, but the Baggies already have a young English striker they trust in Saido Berahino.

However, Berahino has also been linked with a summer exit, and the latest report claims that Tony Pulis will only make a move for Bamford should Berahino depart the Hawthorns.

Although he is yet to prove himself in the top flight, Bamford has shown enough talent to suggest he will easily adapt to the Premier League, and he will need to take any chances presented to him if he intends to break into the Chelsea first-team.
