News broke this week that Tottenham Hotspur had a £15 million bid for Saido Berahino rejected and West Brom insisting that he's not for sale.
But Berahino could potentially be exactly what Spurs need to make a push for top four.
He has already proven to be a good partner for Tottenham's main man Harry Kane from their time playing for the England Under-21s together; seeing both their names on the team-sheet would worry any Premier League defence.

Berahino would add some extra pace in the final third for Spurs and could run the channels opening up more space that Kane can exploit.
In the first game of the season against Manchester United it was evident that Spurs were lacking that cutting edge; it was hard to see where the goals would come from.
They did manage to bag two against Stoke but once Kane was taken off the focal point was gone and it showed. Clinton Njie is an unproven entity in the Premier League and as much as Spurs fans want him to hit the ground running he will probably need some time to settle in.
So it would seem Berahino is almost a necessity because he is a proven Premier League goalscorer and can take some of the pressure off of Harry Kane's back, to be honest £25 million would be worth it based on the amount he could improve the team.
I for one would like to see him turn out in a Spurs shirt because it can help improve his game massively and that can only be good for the England team.
So realistically Spurs need to stop at nothing to obtain this young talent if they want the season to be a success.
