Saido Berahino has had an eventful career for such a young man, but unfortunately for the West Brom striker, it’s not always been for the right reasons.
Back in the 2014/2015 season, Berahino was enjoying the best form of his career, making over 45 appearances for the Baggies and scoring 20 goals in the process.
Yet with the consistent form comes the transfer headlines, and in August 2015, Pulis rejected a bid estimated at £15million for Berahino to sign for Spurs.
The youngster didn’t take this too well and he was dropped for being “disruptive”. Berahino quickly handed in a transfer request which was rejected before he announced on Twitter that he would never play for the club under chairman Jeremy Peace.
However, both sides reconciled and he integrated back into the first team but failed to live up to the same form this season round.
So with this fractured relationship still not as stable as it once was, here are FIVE potential transfer destinations for Berahino this summer…
The Saints have not hesitated in adding to their squad already this summer after bringing in Nathan Redmond from Norwich City. And they’re expected to continue through the summer, with Berahino being Berahino being considered a great fit down-south.
The Saints have European football to look forward to next season and will need to bolster their ranks in order to find success both domestically and in the cup.
Despite Troy Deeney signing an improved contract at Vicarage Road, Watford may still be in the market for more fire power up front. And a move for Berahino would truly signal their intent for the coming seasons.
They had a decent campaign last season and Ighalo and Berahino could be an extremely tasty front-two indeed.
If Leicester came knocking at the West Brom door, you’d surely find it difficult to turn down a move to the reigning Premier League Champions, right?
They can offer Champions League football and the opportunity to play against some of the best teams in the world – a truly tempting proposal for any aspiring young striker.
With Ronald Koeman now at the reigns of cash-rich Everton, he will be looking for quality players to bolster his ranks for the upcoming season. A transfer fee wouldn’t be an issue and a player of Berahino’s quality would go down rather nicely on Merseyside.
There is a real English contingent at Goodison already and Berahino could strike up an exciting partnership with Barkley and co.
And who knows, this could transfer to the international side of the game too.
Spurs are the team that caused all the unrest in the Baggies camp, so could they come back with another bid this summer?
Mauricio Pochettino’s men ran out of steam towards the back end of last season and needed that little bit of extra firepower when it really mattered.
Berahino could form an alliance with fellow Englishman Harry Kane, and after that who knows what would come Berahino’s way if he showed some strong domestic form.
