Are Berahino's Comments A 'Come-And-Get-Me' Plea To Liverpool?
As one January transfer saga spills back over into what looks to be a summer one, Saido Berahino has once again reignited talk over his future at West Brom, being seemingly unconvinced by Tony Pulis's new regime, and hinting quite explicitly that he is no longer happy at the Hawthorns. The truculent Burundian forward has all but demanded to leave West Brom, being quoted as dreaming of "bigger and better things", and, according to the Telegraph, the Baggies have had enough.
Pulis is said to be so furious with the striker's 'bad attitude' that they have shelved plans to offer a contract extension to Berahino; instead, they will look to sell him for upwards of £20m in the summer, most likely to Liverpool. It is no secret that Berahino is a long term target of Liverpool's, with Brendan Rodgers hoping to start next season with Sturridge, Origi, Ings and Berahino as his young, dynamic and talented band of attackers. Whether or not Liverpool bow to West Brom's valuation is another matter; however, it does look fairly certain that Saido Berahino will not be a Baggie for long.
