Liverpool will consider a January move for West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino.
The England U-21 international starlet has been targeted by Tottenham Hotspur and there has been a £15million offer mooted by the north London club. That falls ways short of the price which would persuade West Brom to sell. The Baggies believe Berahino is worth in excess of £25m, and Liverpool’s potential interest could see a bidding battle with Spurs.
It is already recognized in Liverpool circles that the signing of Mario Balotelli is a gamble which has not worked. But the Reds will find it hard to ‘move on’ Balotelli in the January transfer window.
Even if they can’t, the club are set to move for a new striker, with Behahino now high on the list. Swansea’s Wilfried Bony, a Spurs target last summer is another option for the Reds
