Spurs to kick off January with West Brom raid

Tottenham are ready to kick start their January transfer plans with a bid of over £10m for West Brom’s Saido Berahino, which may prompt the Baggies to move for Burnley’s Danny Ings, according to reports from The Telegraph.

The 21-year-old Hawthorns ace has enjoyed an excellent start to the 2014/15 campaign, notching eight goals in all competitions for Alan Irvine’s side.

His razor-sharp form has alerted a host of top sides, with Liverpool and Spurs thought to be among the list of suitors for the striker, who himself is understood to be anxious to move away from the Midlands club to further his career.

Tottenham are desperate to beat their rivals to the England U-21 star, and reports suggest that an offer of just over £10m will be lodged when the calendar flips over to 2015.

West Brom themselves are eager to keep their man, yet Berahino himself is rumoured to have ambitions that he believes the Baggies cannot match.

Should the club sell, Burley’s Ings is their main target to come in as a replacement.

The Clarets ace’s contract expires at the end of the season, prompting suggestions that he could be sold for around £7.5m in January.
