Arsenal and Everton plotting moves for Berahino

Saido Berahino (West Brom)Arsenal and Everton are planning moves to snatch Saido Berahino from West Brom, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The England U-21 international has emerged as one of the Baggies’ star men after a wonderful week in the first-team.

The 20-year-old netted in a Capital One Cup defeat to Arsenal last week before bagging an excellent winner at Old Trafford on Saturday.

This form has alerted a number of top sides, who are keen to take advantage of his current contract situation.

Berahino’s deal at the Hawthorns expires next year, meaning that he could be available for a cut-price switch in January or for free in the summer.

The Midlanders are desperate to tie him down to a new contract, and have opened talks with the youngster.

However, Everton and Arsenal are monitoring the situation and could pounce if there are any signs of unrest.

The Toffees are believed to hold the strongest interest, with said to have Roberto Martinez instructed scouts to watch the player during next weekend’s action.

Arsenal are also keen on the attacker, who fled war-torn Burundi ant the age of 10 before pursuing a football career with West Brom.
