According to The Mirror, West Bromwich Albion are planning to offer West Ham an intriguing swap deal - Saido Berahino for Diafra Sakho.

The Hammers have already strengthened their squad with two impressive free agent captures, with midfielder Havard Nordtveit and winger Sofiane Feghouli joining the club on Bosman deals.

Now though, it's time for the Hammers to bring in some attacking reinforcements, with a host of big-name strikers already linked with moves to the Olympic Stadium this summer.

However, manager Slaven Bilic could now be offered an intriguing deal. The Mirror report that West Brom are so keen to land Diafra Sakho from the Hammers, that they are willing to offer up Saido Berahino in exchange.

According to the Daily Mail, Sakho wants to leave West Ham in order to play regular first-team football, having struggled at times under Bilic last season.

Meawhile, West Brom hitman Berahino hit just seven goals in all competitions this past season, having hammered 20 goals in the 2014/15 campaign.

The young forward endured a turbulent season, and was often left on the sidelines by manager Tony Pulis having pushed for a move to Tottenham last summer.

Now with just one year left on his contract, the Baggies seem willing to let Berahino leave this summer - and are attempting to land an immediate replacement by offering him in exchange for Sakho.

The report claims that West Brom think Hammers boss Bilic will be tempted to strike a deal if Berahino is included in the offer, and given that he's chasing attacking reinforcements, this could be a smart move for all parties.

West Ham get a young English striker who has proven he can score goals in the Premier League, whilst West Brom get a forward desperate to play, and injects some athleticism into their front line.

Swap deals very rarely happen in the Premier League, but this one could work out for everybody involved - all that's left now is for West Brom to put the offer on the table.
