Tottenham Hotspur fans are looking up with some serious interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Express and Star seem to think one of their top targets is facing yet more trouble at his current club.
The man we are talking about is of course West Bromwich Albion forward Saido Berahino who remained at The Hawthorns despite being linked with Spurs in the lead up to the January transfer window.
After making some pretty direct comments about his future recently, Berahino is set to be fined by the Baggies.
In an interview not agreed by the West Midlands club, Berahino claimed: “I’m taking care of my short-term goals right now and if I keep scoring goals and doing well for West Brom, I know the future will be bright for me and I’ll go a long way.”
While also claiming that he is focused on keeping Tony Pulis’ side in the Premier League, this moving onto better things vibe will mean he’ll be hot water for the time being.
Liverpool are also keen on the forward who certainly has talent but the fact remains – a player who is willing to defy his current club at such a young age does not bode well for the future.
Both the Reds and Spurs have troubled forwards at the minute and quite if adding another one to the mix is the way forward for either of the clubs remains to be seen.
In fact, according to our landlord, it would be a seriously bad idea and frankly, the majority of our punters have to agree.
Tottenham fans. Would you still be willing to take Berahino on in the summer following a plethora of disciplinary issues? Let us know your thoughts below.
