berahinoooo99Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern are on cloud nine this weekend, after the latest round of fixtures saw them rise to second in the Premier League and firmly establish themselves as contenders for the title.

With a spot in the Champions League looking almost assured, Tottenham are looking to build their squad and make themselves contenders. As such, news regarding the potential signing of this quality striker have gone down well.

The Sunday People states Tottenham have first-refusal on West Brom striker Saido Berahino this summer, following successful talks between Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and Baggies counterpart Jeremy Peace.

Spurs have chased the highly-rated 22-year-old England youngster since last summer, failing with a new approach in January, but now a gentleman’s agreement has been reached between the two Premier League sides.

Tottenham are still keen to add Berahino to their squad, making him the long-term striking partner to compatriot Harry Kane, and they will return for the player this summer.
