West Brom striker Saido Berahino is reported to be considering legal action against a teammate after the scuffle that followed the club’s dramatic draw with Cardiff. Any discord between Berahino and his colleagues is likely to alert potential suitors, with Arsenal having been linked with the England under-21 international in the past.
Berahino reportedly suffered a head injury as a result of the dressing room argument on Saturday, with the forward having committed an error to allow Cardiff to snatch a stoppage time equaliser after West Brom had just taken the lead.
Although the Baggies have moved to play down the severity of the incident, Ben Smith of BBC Sport reports that Berahino is considering legal proceedings, while there have been claims elsewhere that James Morrison was the player to strike the youngster.
Berahino’s form in the early part of the season prompted suggestions that the 20-year-old was on the radar of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, but West Brom were able to tie the player to a long-term contract in December.
But with Arsenal on the lookout for another goalscorer to provide competition for places at the Emirates Stadium, it could be that Wenger may be tempted to check on the situation of Berahino given the relative uncertainty regarding the harmony in the West Brom dressing room.
