Liverpool fans are delighted in the Football Transfer Tavern after the Mirror revealed that Saido Berahino was Brendan Rodgers’ top priority in the January transfer window as he wishes to add more goals to his struggling strike force.
The 21-year-old has already put away eight goals this season, with seven of those goals being scored in the Premier League, but this phenomenal goal return for an English youngster will not come cheap.
Not only is he high in value but also the Baggies are fighting tooth and nail to keep him at their club, which will only make negotiations more difficult.
Also to add to their competition, the Reds will go up against Tottenham who are also keen on the youngster.
It is believed he will be worth around £15m but in an attempt to kill off the transfer rumours, the Baggies are trying to get him to sign a new and improved contract.
Liverpool fans. Do you think Brendan Rodgers will be more desperate to sign him after the recent injury to Daniel Sturridge? Let us know your thoughts below.
