West Brom's new star Saido Berahino has thrown his future in to doubt after rejecting a contract extension at the Hawthorns, reports the Daily Mirror.

The England under-21 international has fast become one of the most sought after strikers in the country after his electric form inspired a famous 2-1 win against Manchester United.

Steve Clarke was keen to get Berahino, who currently earns just £850-a-week and is one of the lowest paid players in the Premier League, on to a new, long-term deal but the 20-year-old has rejected the £7,000-a-week offer.

His hesitation has alerted both Arsenal and Chelsea, who are interested in signing the striker in January.

Arsene Wenger is keen on bringing in a striker in January as his reliance of Olivier Giroud at the Emirates grows by the week.

Jose Mourinho is understandably keen to add the talented youngster to his roster to insert some much needed youth in to his strike force.

Mourinho currently has Demba Ba, Samuel Eto'o and Fernando Torres to choose from, all of whom are 28-years-old or over.

Berahino is reportedly keen to increase his chances of making England's World Cup squad in the summer and sees a move to a top four club as the best chance for his to be included.

Berahino has scored six goals in four games for the under-21s so far this season, proving his ability on the international stage.

The 20-year-old could leave on the cheap in January and even cheaper in the summer when his contract expires, leaving West Brom with as little as £300,000 in compensation.
