Arsenal join race for £30m Prem star

Arsenal are in the running for West Brom’s impressive forward Saido Berahino, according to reports from Metro.

The England U-21 international enjoyed a breakthrough 2014/15 campaign with the Baggies, netting a commendable 14 Premier League goals – almost three-times his haul from the previous campaign.

A host of sides have been aligned with him since comments the 21-year-old made regarding his desire to move on to bigger and better things, and West Brom have recently responded to transfer talk by slapping a £30m valuation on their starlet.

However, Arsenal remain keen on Berahino, who is yet to agree to an extension on his contract at The Hawthorns – he’s about to enter the final 24 months of his deal.

Liverpool have been strongly aligned with the versatile striker, however, their relationship with his agent, Aidy Ward – who represents unsettled Anfield ace Raheem Sterling – may be a potential issue.
