Saido Berahino says he could leave West Brom

West Brom striker Saido Berahino has admitted he could leave West Brom amidst reported interest from the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.

The 21-year-old has been on fire this season, and has seven goals in ten league appearances so far.


That includes a fine strike against Manchester United, and it seems as though his form has caught the eye of the Red Devils. He's certainly caught the eye of England boss Roy Hodgson too having just been handed his first senior call-up for the Three Lions.

Louis van Gaal may view him as the ideal compliment to his ageing front line but he won't come cheap; West Brom are believed to he holding out for around £30 million. That, plus reported interest from Liverpool and Tottenham will make the deal difficult to complete.


There does at least seem to be a desire to move on Berahino's part after he conceded that he may have to leave the Hawthornes in order to fulfil his ambitions.

When quizzed about potentially leaving West Brom, the striker responded: "If that's what it comes to, yeah, it will have to be that".

However he added: "But obviously I appreciate what West Brom have done for me and I am working each day to win the club as many games as can. Right now I am focused on West Brom."


West Brom boss Alan Irvine has previously urged Berahino to stay put in order to help his development, but the interest from the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool may make that impossible.

The Red Devils are well stocked in attack with the likes of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Radamel Falcao all on board. However all three are aged 28 or over and there are already question marks over Van Persie's form and Falcao's fitness.

Tottenham meanwhile look short in attack, and Emmanuel Adebayor has been criticised for his form in recent weeks while Roberto Soldado looks no closer to scoring the amount of goals he managed in Spain. Liverpool are still on the lookout for the man to replace Luis Suarez, and while Berahino won't directly fill the Uruguayan's shoes he could certainly fill in with some goals.
