Tottenham Hotspur to reignite interest in long-term target Saido Berahino


Tottenham's £10 million summer signing Clinton Njie has been sidelined for up to three months after undergoing knee surgery, according to the Telegraph.

The Cameroon international has endured a fairly uninspiring start to his first season in England by failing to start a Premier League game thus far, making just seven substitute appearances.

After failing to secure the services of West Brom's controversial striker Saido Berahino in the summer, Spurs are set to declare their interest in the Englishman once again.

Spurs made three attempts to secure his services - the highest bid being £23 million - and it was clear the England international wanted a move to White Hart Lane.

After reportedly handing in a transfer request, West Brom's chairman Jeremy Peace stood firm in his attempts to keep the promising youngster at the club.

However, with Spurs set to go all-out in their attempts to persuade Peace to let him leave, the offer may be too good to turn down. Reports have also suggested the Lilywhites could use Andros Townsend to sweeten the deal.

With Harry Kane currently the only out-and-out striker at the club, Mauricio Pochettino is in desperate need of rotational options.

The Argentine uses a 4-2-3-1 formation which has re-energised the club's push for Champions League qualification.

When the Baggies made Salomon Rondon their record signing in a deal worth around £12 million, it was presumed he would start alongside Berahino in the attack. This would have formed a classic strike partnership consisting of pace, agility and an aerial presence.

Such a tactic failed to materialise, though, which could see Berahino's dream of moving to north London finally become reality.
