Jordan Rhodes is the striker West Brom should blow the Saido Berahino money on today

Jordan Rhodes of Blackburn Rovers

West Brom should move for Blackburn's Jordan Rhodes if Saido Berahino is sold, with Newcastle interested.

West Bromwich Albion could have a big decision to make regarding Saido Berahino.

The BBC report Newcastle United have offered £21 million, and could go higher.

One of the toughest problems they will face is whether they can sign an adequate replacement for the 22-year-old.

Fortunately there is a prolific forward who is available, and keen to move.

Step forward Jordan Rhodes, who came close to leaving Blackburn Rovers yesterday.

The Scotsman has netted 20 plus goals in the last three Championship seasons, and was on the verge of moving to Middlesbrough.

The BBC reported Rhodes' move fell through yesterday with the Teeside club reluctant to do the deal for financial reasons.

This will not be an issue for the Baggies if they cash in on Berahino.

Rhodes ticks all the boxes, he is available, affordable, willing to move, and most importantly, is a prolific goalscorer.

There may not be a more suitable candidate if West Brom decide to cave in their desire to hold onto Berahino.
