Report: Tottenham to launch £15 million bid for West Brom's Saido Berahino

Saido Berahino

The confirmation of Roberto Soldado’s sale will see Spurs step up their efforts to land the Baggies striker.

Tottenham are preparing to launch a £15 million bid for Saido Berahino, as per the Telegraph.

The 22-year old has been linked with a Hawthorns exit all summer but doubts were cast over his move after West Brom placed a £25 million valuation on him.

The report claims a deal will likely be struck at around £20 million however,  with Spurs opening proceedings with a £15 million bid.

It follows confirmation of Roberto Soldado’s transfer to Villarreal today, as per the club’s official site, for a fee believed to be around £10 million – according to ESPN.

Spurs are also set to announce the signing of Clinton N’Jie imminently, after he underwent a medical on Friday - as per the Telegraph - but additional attacking reinforcements are expected.

N’Jie is viewed as an option for either flank and an emergency back-up for Kane rather than a like-for-like alternative.

Berahino on the other hand, would represent the quality centre-forward Spurs fans have been crying out for to lessen the load on their academy graduate.
