Chelsea are set to make a surprise move for West Brom youngster Saido Berahino in January according to the Metro.

Berahino has been a key part of West Brom’s season so far and the England under 21 has scored five goals in six games as the Baggies host in form Arsenal this afternoon.

Berahino has already scored against the Gunner this season, in the League Cup, as well as smashing home the winner at Old Trafford last weekend.

The 20 year old is out of contract at the end of this season and Albion are doing all they can to persuade the youngster to stay at the Hawthorns for the long term.

However, Chelsea are set to make a January move for Berahino leaving the striker with a bid decision to make.

Chelsea are not known for allowing youngsters to flourish, especially under Jose Mourinho who relies on his ‘old guard’ a lot but the move to West London could be too hard to turn down.
