Sky Sports News are reporting that Stoke City have lodged a bid of £20 million for West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino.

The Baggies striker's future has been the subject of intense speculation over the past two seasons, with Berahino making it quite clear that he wants to leave The Hawthorns on occasions.

Sky Sports go on to report that the 22-year-old turned down an offer of a new four-year contract last week, and with just one year remaining on his current deal, it is likely that West Brom will want to sell.

Should a move come to fruition, Berahino would be a fantastic addition to the Stoke side.

Although the Potters have an array of exciting attacking talent at their disposal, one attribute they do lack is pace, and that is exactly what the West Brom man would bring to the Britannia Stadium.

Berahino made 31 Premier League appearances for the Baggies last term, with 14 of those coming from the bench, and managed just four goals.

It is quite clear that he desperately needs a fresh start somewhere that will enable him to reignite his career and reach the levels he is capable of.

West Brom would surely have to accept an offer of anything near the £20 million being reported or risk losing the 22-year-old for nothing next summer.
