Arsenal & Chelsea suffer setback as target closes in on new deal

Published Add your comment

Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea have been dealt a blow in the race to sign West Brom's Saido Berahino.

The London sides were hoping to prise Berahino away from the Baggies as early as the January transfer window.

However their hopes have been dented as West Brom manager Steve Clarke believes Berahino could sign a new deal to stay at the Hawthorns within the next 24 hours.

The West Brom manager said on the England Under-21 star:

"I'm confident Berahino will sign a new contract within next 24 hours."

The 20-year-old has attracted interest from the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea due to his recent fine form.

Berahino has scored six goals in nine games for Clarke's side so far this season.

West Brom fans will be delighted with Clarke's claims that Berahino will not be leaving the Baggies for Arsenal or Chelsea in January, however they will have to wait at least 24 hours until they receive official confirmation of the starlet's new deal.
