Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp told talkSPORT that he feels Baggies boss Tony Pulis won’t lose any sleep if he loses Saido Berahino.
The Birmingham Mail is an example of one of several sources to suggest that a deal for Berahino to join Spurs is still possible by the transfer deadline later today.
However, West Brom are holding firm over their optimum price for the player and it’s unclear as to whether Tottenham will take the bait with a deal for Son Heung-Min already secured.
“I think it would be a good deal for both clubs. I don’t think Tony (Pulis) is going to lose any sleep over losing him – He’s got strikers at the club now and he’ll be quite happy now to take the money because he won’t want an unhappy player at his club,” he told talkSPORT.
Surely the deal would have happened by now?
There will be plenty of fans rightly suggesting that if a deal was going to happen then it would have taken place by now.
Tottenham spent a large amount of cash on their deal for Son and while they have offloaded some deadwood, creating space in their wage budget, whether Daniel Levy would commission another major offer is doubtful.
West Brom do have cover but they are a better side, with a better squad if they keep Berahino where he is, but even despite Son’s arrival, there’s arguably still a need for a striker to come in and do a job for Spurs.
