According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Ronald Koeman wants to make West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino his first signing at Everton.

The Dutch boss is set to be handed over £100 million to spend on new players, and it is thought that Berahino is on his wishlist.

The Baggies forward has been heavily linked with a move away from the Hawthorns for the past two transfer windows, and he remains in demand.

Berahino did not have the best season last campaign, but it is believed that Koeman feels that the 22-year-old could enhance his forward options.

Everton are on the look out for a new striker, with Romelu Lukaku likely to leave.

West Brom have so far rejected all advances for Berahino, but he only has 12-months remaining on his contract, and it is believed that the Midlands side will be more willing to listen to offers this summer, as they don’t want to risk losing their prized asset on a free.
