Report outlines Tottenham’s deadline-day stance over Saido Berahino

Saido Berahino

Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United and Stoke City are reportedly interested in signing Saido Berahino from West Bromwich Albion.

Tottenham Hotspur will not enter a bidding war for West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino, according to The Daily Mail.

The British newspaper has reported on its live transfer feed at 8:58am this morning (Monday, February 1) that Tottenham are happy to wait until the summer in order to sign the 22-year-old.

It has been reported that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy does not want to get into a bidding war with Premier League rivals Newcastle United and Stoke City, who also want the young English striker.

The Daily Mail has claimed that the North London outfit do not want to pay £21 million as transfer fee for the former England Under-21 international.

Tottenham are reportedly confident that they can get Berahino on the cheap at the end of the season.

Risky?

Tottenham appear to be taking a risk. What if Newcastle decide to offer £25m or above and West Brom accept it?

While it makes sense not to pay £21m for a striker who is not guaranteed a place in the Baggies’ starting lineup, if Spurs really want him, then they should do all they can to snap him up today.
