Tottenham Hotspur are odds-on favourites to sign striker Saido Berahino from West Bromwich Albion before the summer transfer window closes.

The England U21 international rose to prominence last season at the Hawthorns, scoring 14 goals in 38 Premier League appearances.

He notched another six in seven in other competitions, with five of those coming in four FA Cup appearances on the way to the quarter-finals.

Tony Pulis is desperate to keep the 22-year-old with the Baggies this season and he's featured in both league matches this season. However, SkyBET believe the player could be on his way to White Hart Lane, with Spurs now 4/11 to sign the player before September 3rd.

The same firm offer odds of 12/5 that he remains at West Brom, with Arsenal next on the list at 16/1. Manchester City - who had been linked with a move - are now priced at 20/1 alongside Manchester United and Newcastle, with Liverpool also available at 25s.

Market prices suggest north London is the only realistic option for the former Peterborough United loanee, although a stumbling block could be the £25million price tag place on the player, according to the Daily Mail.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is short of options in attack this season, with Roberto Soldado moving on and Emmanuel Adebayor heading for the exit door.

Harry Kane is leading the line and the first choice striker for Tottenham after a stellar season last term, and he has been joined by Clinton N'Jie on a five-year deal from Lyon.

However, there is little in the way of depth beyond those two and if Pochettino is looking for some Premier League experience then Berahino appears to be an ideal option. It remains to be seen if Tottenham can make a deal happen, but the bookies clearly believe it's just a matter of time.

Spurs fans, is Saido Berahino the right man to compliment Harry Kane? Have your say below!
