Tottenham Hotspur transfer round-up: Pochettino to focus on signing Berahino

Saido Berahino

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Daily Mirror has reported that Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen on making a move for West Brom forward Saido Berahino.

The paper mentions the England under-21 striker as a key target for the club, mentioning Arsenal as potential rivals.

The Mirror suggests that a bid of around £15 million would be needed to get the ball rolling over a deal.

The Daily Star has reported that Berahino is set to enter talks with current owners West Brom over a new deal.

The paper claims the Baggies could be prepared to double his current wage deal in order to prevent him from leaving the club.

The Daily Mirror claims former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood remains keen on a deal for Emmanuel Adebayor.

The striker has reportedly been identified by Sherwood as a replacement for Christian Benteke at his current side, Aston Villa.

Adebayor has struggled to turn his form and career around under Pochettino and it’s arguable that the side and the majority of the club’s fans would find it difficult to miss him if a deal is completed.
