Report: Spurs think half-price deal will secure Saido Berahino, contract details disclosed

Saido Berahino

Tottenham reportedly believe they can sign West Brom's Saido Berahino for just £12m this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur will press ahead with a deal for Saido Berahino this summer - and think they can sign him for just £12m.

Berahino, 22, has had a bizarre season so far, as having hit 20 goals for West Brom last season, he has been on the fringes of Tony Pulis' side this term.

The Burundi-born forward was the subject of four failed bids from Tottenham Hotspur last summer, and the striker responded by taking to Twitter, proclaiming that he wouldn't play for the Baggies again, as reported by Sky Sports.

Berahino has been trying to work his way back into the good books at The Hawthorns, and recent goals against Peterborough Untied and Crystal Palace have seen him reclaim a place in Pulis' team.

The forward's future is still up in the air though, as West Brom again blocked Berahino from leaving in January, as The Mirror reported on deadline day last month that Newcastle had a £24m bid rejected for him.

Now though, the Daily Mail report that title-chasing Tottenham will be making another move for Berahino this summer, but are convinced that they can sign him for a knockdown price.

Berahino has just over a year left on his contract, and unless West Brom cash in, they risk losing their prized asset for nothing in the summer of 2017.

With that in mind, it's claimed that Tottenham think they will be able to land Berahino for just £12m, half of what West Brom rejected from Newcastle a month ago, such is their concern about his contract situation.

It's also reported that Berahino would expect a contract worth around £45,000-a-week, with Tottenham allegedly willing to stump up the cash and finally land some cover for star striker Harry Kane this summer.

Would Berahino be a good signing for Spurs?
