The strong start to the season the Hawthorns outfit had will see them start in the Premier League next season and it looks like they are set to lose one of their stars finally this season.
England international and West Bromwich Albion winger Saido Berahino has been on the radar of a number of top clubs ever since his breakthrough season with the club a few years ago.
The Baggies were able to keep the player at the club even after it was repeatedly rumored that the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham were interested in him before the start of this season.
However, repeated failures to reach the upper half of the table will now see the West Midlands outfit find it hard to keep 22-year old ace at the club at the start of the next season.
Spurs spent most of the January trying to bring the England forward to White Hart Lane, but West Brom rejected four different bids from the London franchise.
The final one, according to Tottenham, was worth £25m – the price at which West Brom were said to be prepared to do business – but it came too late on deadline day.
West Brom disputed that it was worth that much and were unhappy about the manner in which Tottenham proposed to structure his payments and also the timing of the offer right in the middle of a season.
Tottenham would have liked to take Berahino in January but it was made clear to them, and everybody else, that West Brom would not sell.
There is now the acceptance that Berahino, whose West Brom contract expires in June 2017, can leave and it is understood that the Spurs are leading the race for the 22-year old ace.
Though no new news about the price of the player is released, previous reports say West Brom want £30million for the 22-year-old ace.
Berahino, who has been capped at Under-21 level by England, is back in Pulis’s starting XI and has seven goals in all competitions for the club this season. He scored 20 for them last time out.
He will be a quality addition to any squad and will have to prove himself if he wants a regular place in a team like Tottenham Hotspur.
