Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is eyeing a January move for West Brom youngster Saido Berahino, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Berahino’s rise to stardom has accelerated in recent weeks with goals for England under-21’s and Albion, including the winner away at Manchester United last month and a hat trick in the Capital One Cup against Newport.

The 20 year old has been urged to keep his feet on the ground by people at West Brom but Albion have so far failed to tie him down to a long term contract with his current wage of just £850-a-week starting to bother the striker.

Arsenal are expected to make a move for the striker in January but they face competition from the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea in order to seal a deal.

The Gunners may have to fork out in excess of £10million for Berahino but a loan move back to Albion may be on the cards if a deal is put in place in January.
