Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool are 2/1 favourites to sign West Brom’s Saido Berahino according to Sky Bet.
Berahino has 18 goals and 34 appearances in all competitions so far this season as well as his first call up to the senior England set-up; with the sky seemingly the limit.
Rumours have been circulating for months surrounding the 21-year old’s future with the Baggies; with most of the top teams in England showing an interest including Manchester United, Southampton, Everton, Arsenal, Tottenham and the current favourites, Liverpool.
Tottenham follow Liverpool as second favourite at 4/1, the Red Devils in third at 8/1, Southampton at 10/1, Everton at 20/1 and the outsiders Arsenal with 33/1 odds.
Of course, there is still a chance that Berahino stays an Albion player for next season, despite claims from the player himself that if he can continue to score goals and keep Tony Pulis’ side in the Premier League, that he would leave the club in the summer.
In that case; “I’m sure the fans wouldn’t mind me moving on to bigger and better things” he told Sky Sports back in February," the forward told Sky Sports.
Decisions to make
Tony Pulis hasn’t been drawn on the transfer speculation of his player but did have this to say; “He’s got wonderful talent and the most important thing for Saido is to keep his feet on the ground and keep moving in the right direction.”
Spurs have Harry Kane in incredible form, United have almost £100M worth of striking talent on their books, Everton are invested in Romelu Lukaku, Arsenal may be looking to upgrade in the summer but is Berahino proven enough for such a big club?
Wherever Berahino goes he may have to force his way into a side, which is a risk but one he might have to take if he wants to see his career take that next step.
The best option?
Should he sign for Liverpool, where misfiring forwards Daniel Sturridge and Mario Balotelli could find their positions at risk come summer; that core of young attacking flair could really become something special should he strike up a partnership with Sterling, Coutinho and co.
They could be giving Premier League defences headaches for the next 10 years.
