Report: Tottenham re-open talks over Saido Berahino, Levy prepares one final bid

Daniel Levy

Tottenham are reportedly making one final push to sign West Brom striker Saido Berahino.

According to The Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur have re-opened talks with West Bromwich Albion over a deal to sign striker Saido Berahino.

Spurs have snapped up two forwards already this month, bringing in Clinton N'Jie and Son Heung-min from Lyon and Bayer Leverkusen respectively.

However, manager Mauricio Pochettino is still looking for more attacking help for Harry Kane, with the England international failing to find the back of the net so far.

Their top target of late has been West Brom star Saido Berahino, with the Baggies confirming on their official website last week that they have rejected two bids from Spurs for the 22-year-old.

Now though, with just over one day left of the transfer window, The Mirror believe that Spurs have re-opened talks with their Premier League rivals over a deal for Berahino.

After 20 goals in all competitions last season, the Burundi-born forward impressed at The Hawthorns, and is seen as the man to take some pressure off Kane in the Spurs attack, after the duo struck up a partnership for the England Under-21's.

It's now suggested that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is preparing one final bid to try and lure Berahino to White Hart Lane, meaning his deal could drag on well into deadline day.

With pace to threaten defences and the versatility to play up front or out wide, Berahino is the ideal player to come in and help boost Tottenham's attacking options - but with West Brom playing hard ball over his fee, Levy has to be wary of overpaying at this late stage in the transfer window.
