Kevin Campbell explains why Saido Berahino shouldn't join Tottenham

Former Gunner and Baggies striker Kevin Campbell feels there's merit in Saido Berahino not moving to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

Former West Brom and Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell told talkSPORT why he feels it would be better for Saido Berahino to ignore a possible move to Tottenham this summer.

The London Evening Standard is among many sources to have reported the news of a potential swoop for the Baggies player by Spurs, as they look to improve their attacking ranks this summer.

However, Campbell has suggested that players in the modern game have a tendency to move too early and has suggested that Berahino would arguably be better suited to a move to a club like Tottenham in two or three years.

“I think he could be a success at Tottenham, but I think a lot of these young players tend to move a bit too quick. He’s playing in a Premier League side and he’s getting experience and everything, he’s only young – In two or three years if he wants to move then fine,” he told talkSPORT.

Should he stay or should he go?

The merit in Berahino staying exactly where he is, is that he’s playing regularly under an experienced manager in the form of Tony Pulis.

He’s having the chance on a weekly basis to lead an attack, through the middle, which is something that may not happen if he joins Tottenham.

Tottenham’s attack is based around Harry Kane and would cause Berahino to consider moving to a slightly wider position on either side, rather than through the middle as a main striker.

Tottenham also represents the possibility of European football but with the transfer deadline looming in a couple of weeks, this is a potential deal which may just slip by.
