Report: Tottenham believe Saido Berahino wants transfer, Levy haggling over asking price

Saido Berahino Albion

Tottenham are still pushing for Saido Berahino, according to reports.

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham are confident that they can swiftly agree terms with striker Saido Berahino - if West Brom agree to sell him.

Spurs have only signed defenders so far this summer, and whilst Toby Alderweireld impressed last weekend against Manchester United, manager Mauricio Pochettino needs to bring in players to help Harry Kane in the final third if Tottenham are to land a top four place.

The Daily Mail report that Spurs are still heavily pursuing West Brom star Saido Berahino - and are confident that the player wants a move to White Hart Lane this summer.

The 22-year-old hit 20 goals for the Baggies last season, establishing himself as one of the top young English striker during the course of the campaign - and he would certainly provide the pace that Tottenham need in attack.

However, the report states that whilst West Brom want a fee of £25m for Berahino, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is only willing to pay half of that asking price. with the haggling somewhat complicating matters.

It's stated that, if Spurs do manage to agree a fee for Berahino, they are confident that terms are a 'formality', with a quick agreement likely.

Of course, Spurs need to agree a fee for Berahino first - and given the difference in valuation, it could take some time to reach a deal between the two Premier League clubs.
