Just one day after being named in the first team England squad, Saido Berahino has come out of the shadows to admit his desire to play Champions League football which would consequently mean a move away from West Brom.

After seven goals in the opening 10 Premier League games, the Baggies forward is currently the third top goalscorer in the big time behind Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa with Alexis Sanchez hot on his heels with the same amount.

With strikes against Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Sunderland, Berahino has proved that he can play at the top level which has led to a call up from England manager Roy Hodgson due to the absence of Daniel Sturridge through injury.


The 21-year-old has been working with the England younger ages since he was 15 and has finally made his breakthrough into the first team to his great pleasure. "It's an honour and so overwhelming," he said.

But just one day after his huge moment, Berahino has revealed his ambition to be Champions League football with a big club.

With Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and United all showing the earlier stages of interest in the latest England international, could his dreams come true of one day playing Champions League football?

Still at the ripe age of 21 and making his England debut, this could be the start of a very prosperous, exciting and successful career for Berahino who admitted to reporters that he will have to "stay focused in order to do well."

The youngster recently signed a new contract at the Hawthorns which will see him stay around in the Midlands until 2017 with a weekly salary increase of just over £11,000.

Unless of course one of the big teams gives him the golden ticket to Champions League and sweep him off his feet.
