Tottenham Hotspur fans at the Transfer Tavern pool table are breathing a sigh of relief after hearing that their long quest for a striker is finally drawing to a close.
The Sun states that Saido Berahino is desperate to join Tottenham this month, with the West Brom striker set to reject offers from other interest parties in order to complete a deal.
England U21 star Berahino has been pushing for a move since the summer, when a transfer to North London fell apart and led the youngster to hit-out at West Brom over social media. Since then, the relationship has never been repaired.
Tottenham want Berahino to partner star-striker Harry Kane, which would make a duo of two young England stars that could potentially destroy Premier League defences on a regular basis- and lead the side into Champions League football.
Concerns amongst Spurs fans at the bar rose amid speculation of interest from Liverpool, Stoke City and Newcastle United but their pleased to see that Berahino only wants them- and will reject any other advances.
Our landlord has expressed his concerns though, with Berahino having a reputation and any negative effect could derail Spurs’ excellent form and current campaign.
