Report: Tottenham plan deadline day move for Saido Berahino, willing to move closer to asking price

Saido Berahino

Tottenham are ready to make a final push for West Brom striker Saido Berahino.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Tottenham are preparing a final offer for Saido Berahino of West Brom, and are willing to increase their bid.

Spurs have already had two offers rejected by the Baggies, who are looking to receive a fee close to their asking price of £25 million, as stated in the report. It is claimed that Tottenham’s last offer was worth £21 million, and West Brom have no desire to lower their request for a young English striker with a wealth of talent.

However, with just hours to go before the deadline closes, Spurs are ready to make a final approach, increasing their offer closer to the £25 million valuation.

There is no indication as to whether the North London side are willing to actually match the asking price, but it is stated in the report that Spurs believe Berahino wants to move to White Hart Lane.

It could be that he pushes through a move as the transfer deadline approaches, forcing the Baggies to accept a lower fee from Spurs.

It is obvious that Spurs want to bring in Berahino before the close of the window, and they are ready to push on with their approach despite two rejections already this summer.
