Stoke City have become the latest Premier League club to express an interest in signing West Brom striker Saido Berahino, the Daily Mirror reports.

The Potters join Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham in the race to land the 22-year-old, who has become something of an outcast at the Hawthorns following his infamous transfer saga last summer.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes saw a £20 million-plus offer rejected for Berahino during the winter transfer window but appears set to launch a new bid this summer.

He faces considerable competition for the youngster's signature, though, with long-term admirers Spurs keen to boost their options going forward and provide competition for Harry Kane with Champions League football on the horizon for next season.

West Brom will likely be keen to show their controversial striker the exit this summer given he has just a year remaining on his contract, let alone the many problems he has caused them.

Meanwhile, West Ham are also tracking the Englishman's situation amidst their desire to sign a new goalscorer.

Berahino has bagged just seven goals in 28 games across all competitions for the Baggies this season yet such mediocrity doesn't seem to have put off his several suitors.

And it seems manager Tony Pulis would be willing to grant Berahino a move too, the 58-year-old praising his striker following a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace in February and insisting such positive performances would eventually earn him pastures new.

He said, according to the Guardian: "If he plays like he did today everybody will start talking about him.

"His mind is clear and he is set on his football again. The most important thing is that he has a God-given gift and he should squeeze the pips from it, and have a great career.

"Everything will follow. If he is playing well he will get the recognition - and the move."
