Tottenham Hotspur set to raid West Brom for highly-rated England youngster

Tottenham Hotspur are poised to bid £15 million for West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino this week, according to the Sunday People.

It is believed that Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has identified the Baggies hitman as a top-priority signing this summer, with the north London club looking to shake up their frontline.

Out-of-favour forward Emmanuel Adebayor is understood to be in talks with Aston Villa as a potential replacement for Liverpool-bound Christian Benteke, while Roberto Soldado’s future at White Hart Lane looks all but over after a torrid couple of years at the club.

This would leave highly-rated England youngster Harry Kane as Spurs’s only recognised senior centre forward, which means that Pochettino is in the market for a new striker.

Tottenham were heavily linked with a move for Berahino last ­season, but never made an official bid.

However, Pochettino is keen on bringing the 21-year-old to White Hart Lane before the start of the new campaign, which is likely to see the club submitting an offer in the near future.
