Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp offered hope to his old side in terms of signing Saido Berahino, when he spoke to talkSPORT.
Redknapp was quizzed over the speculation, as reported by the Daily Telegraph, which has suggested that the West Brom forward is a key target for the club.
The Baggies have played down the idea of him leaving via their Twitter account, but Redknapp feels that there is a little bit of friction between Berahino and his current owners, which could ultimately work in Tottenham’s favour.
“He’s obviously a talent – I read between the lines a little bit, I think Tony maybe feels he needs to sort him out off the field a little bit, I don’t think all is rosy between the two of them, I wouldn’t be surprised if they got the right offer, they would sell him,” he told talkSPORT.
Tottenham need to make a brilliant offer
It seems that the only way Tottenham are going to grab West Brom’s attention is by making a substantial offer for the player.
The Telegraph’s report, as linked above, suggests that a fee in the region of £10 million is what Spurs are looking at, but they can save time by upping that figure and making an offer which is simply too difficult for the Baggies to turn down.
Pochettino does need a new striker
With just over a week to go until the new Premier League season, Spurs still don’t have an additional striker in place who can take some of the pressure away from the talented Harry Kane.
It would be a mistake for Pochettino to rely on Kane for another season, without someone who can step in should the England man pick up an injury or a suspension.
