Tottenham Hotspur have been told that they must meet West Bromwich Albion’s £25million valuation for Saido Berahino, Express reports.
The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with an exit from the Premier League outfits over the course of the summer, but his move is being put on hold due to his desired transfer fee.
Spurs were said to be ready to table a £15million offer for the services of the striker, but West Brom are standing firm on their £25million valuation.
Baggies boss Tony Pulis revealed that he is very keen on keeping hold of his star man, but will have no control over the final decision should a big money offer come in.
“He’s a good player and we are desperate to keep him. If a top club comes in, as we have said before, you look at Raheem Sterling and eventually they have to sell,” he said.
“Once we get going and if he scores a lot of goals for us then I’m sure it will be very difficult for the football club to keep him.”
He featured 45 times in all competitions for WBA last term, scoring a total of 20 goals while providing a further six assists.
Tottenham are hoping to partner Berahino with star man Harry Kane up top, but the success of the transfer lies in their ability to offload current attacking pair Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado.
