Liverpool and Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are in good spirits heading into January after talkSPORT revealed West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino is seeking an exit from The Hawthorns in January.
Berahino has been a rising star this season and has been the Baggies’ top goalscorer but after a poor run of form lately, he has been dropped from Alan Irvine’s starting line-up for the past three games.
The England Under-21 international was previously deep in negotiations regarding a new contract but it is apparent that it was Berahino’s choice to end talks.
He does not see himself having a long-term future at The Hawthorns and it is clear he wants to move to a club who are challenging for the Champions League.
It will be a sad day for West Brom fans if he does leave the West Midlands club after the 21-year-old came through their youth system with his current contract is set to expire in 2017.
Liverpool and Spurs are considered as frontrunners for his signature and both clubs are keenly monitoring the situation as they hope to strengthen their respective attacking options.
