Report: West Brom to look to QPR pair on deadline day if Berahino sold

West Brom

The Baggies could have plenty of transfer business to come on September 1, if the Tottenham target is sold.

Sky Sports are reporting that West Bromwich Albion have already identified a trio of players to move for on transfer deadline day, but only if a club come in for 22-year-old striker Saido Berahino with a big money offer, as Tottenham continue to be linked by the likes of the Mirror.

Though the Baggies have made their position on the young striker very public and very clear, they will be aware that Tottenham's desperation for a striker could cause them to pay a fee that West Brom have had in mind, a fee that was destined to either earn the Hawthorns side a huge amount or dissuade any club from pursuing the player.

And if that happens, Sky Sports say, West Brom will go on a last minute transfer window raid that could see them net a number of players, though key targets will be QPR duo Charlie Austin and Matt Phillips. Chelsea's Victor Moses is another man that would be pursued.

Tony Pulis has been chasing Phillips for much of the summer, but unwilling to pay the Hoops asking price for the Scotland international, while a similar thing has happened with former Burnley man Austin. His much publicised £15 million value at Loftus Road has seen many clubs take a look, but no one willing to go that high. Both players, widely expected to leave QPR earlier in the summer, are still at the club just a day before the window shuts.

West Brom, were they to be given a huge injection of cash from any possible Berahino sale, would be more willing to pay a couple of million over the odds in order to finally secure Phillips and Austin, says the Sky Sports report.
