Tottenham Hotspur continue to monitor Premier League star ahead of January swoop

West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion - Barclays Premier LeagueThe Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Transfer Tavern are pleased after hearing reports that the club are still interested in signing Saido Berahino from West Bromwich Albion in January.

Berahino was a big transfer target during the summer for Spurs but West Brom blocked four approaches for the striker. This led to the 22-year-old striker laying into club chairman Jeremy Peace and refusing to play for the club whilst he was still there.

The forward has since gone back on his claims and has netted twice against Everton and Aston Villa, with the latter goal being a winner in a feisty Midlands derby.

Spurs are keen to add firepower to their front line and, according to The Telegraph, are keen on Gent star Laurent Depoitre as well as Berahino.

Last seasons top marksman Harry Kane is yet to fine the form which saw him bag 31 goals in all competitions, including 21 in the Premier League.

Kane even scored an outrageuos own goal against Swansea City on Sunday which certainly had Arsenal fans chuckling in the corner of the Transfer Tavern.

Tottenham fans, would Saido Berahino complete your forward line? Let us know in the comments below!
