Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are pleased to hear in Metro that they are closing in on West Bromwich Albion forward Saido Berahino in a deal worth around £23 million.
It is clear Brendan Rodgers needs to sign a top striker as the Reds have struggled in front of goal all season after failing to replace Luis Suarez’s goals and having to deal with Daniel Sturridge’s injury problems.
It is believed that Mario Balotelli will not be sold in January despite his poor form since his move from AC Milan.
The positive news for Rodgers is that Berahino who is yet to be capped by England, this week told West Brom that he wants to leave the West Midlands club in January.
Spurs and Liverpool are leading the chase for his signature but it is though that the Reds are going to seal the deal.
Liverpool are desperate to get the deal done as soon as possible to give Spurs no chance of signing him.
Liverpool fans. Do you think Saido Berahino is the right player you need to sign in the January transfer window? Let us know your thoughts below.
