The Baggies famously refused to sanction the 22-year-old’s move to Tottenham Hotspur last summer but could now let him leave with a replacement already lined up.
Indeed, West Ham striker Diafra Sakho is on the verge of moving to the Hawthorns and The Telegraph believe that will catalyse Berahino’s long-awaited departure.
Crystal Palace and Stoke City are both in the running to snap up the prodigious forward, with the Potters already tabling a club-record transfer bid of £20million.
But according to Uttoxeter Advertiser, both clubs are concerned Premier League rivals Southampton could gazump them with a late swoop for the Burundi-born poacher.
The Saints were linked with Berahino in June by The Sun, who moot him as a potential replacement for now-Liverpool forward Saido Mane.
The St. Mary’s outfit are also yet to replace former frontman Graziano Pelle, who completed a move to Shandong Luneng in July.
