Tottenham Hotspur will seal the £15m signing of West Brom striker Saido Berahino within the next 48 hours, according to the Sunday Express.

Read the full article at Daily Express

If it's reported in the Sunday Express that means it WON'T happen.

£10 in the pot if this happens - not because I like Berahino but because I like SC (and I don't think it will happen).

I really hope this happens. I reckon even though we really like Soldado, his time has come as there is a chance for him to get a good final deal in Spain and for us to recoup a portion of the actual fees we paid out.

Ade is hopefully off as well, but I can see him still here as other chairmen baulk at his wages etc. Villa on loan is probably best for all, with a hefty percentage of his wages shifted.

So I am therefore hopeful of Werner and Berahino.

Kramer/cm of Poch's liking and perhaps Cambiasso for a Naybetesque bit of solidity and experience and I'd be ecstatic with this window. Berahino seems the most gettable and likely for me. Unless we're smokescreening again etc...

Why don't you think it will happen? I think this is one of the most likely signings we'll make. West Brom aren't big enough to keep him and we're probably the best option he'll have. It's a good fit.

Be a good signing. £15m seems a little cheap for an England U21 player so sounds a little too good to be true. Could be down to 2 reasons (1) he is a bit of a knob which has been hinted at before and they want rid or (2) Levy has Levyed them already, or they just don't have the strength to go through it all and be even more Levyed on deadline day.

Not sure about his attitude which seems high on Poch's agenda and IMO he won't be able to play for us the way he does for WBA. They get involved in far more open games than us where teams tend to park the bus.

I see, so you don't think he's a target for us. If Poch wants him then I think there's a good chance it will happen but you may be right and maybe Poch isn't looking at him. I personally think he'd make a good partner option for Kane when we want to go with 2 strikers. I don't think he has an attitude problem anymore than people said about Rose in the past. The question for me is whether he could lead the line alone though because I think we also need someone who can take on Kane's role and let him rest. ideally I would like to see Berahino replace Soldado and Austin replace Adebayor.

We need pace, and this kid has it. Would certainly compliment Harry's style of play and Poch could stick him out wide as well. Good fit for the club, and young and hungry.

Talented, English , young, I think he'd be a great addition...... he's ok value because of his alleged iffy attitude . But players seem to love Poch and coaching team , for the most part, and I reckon he would turn him into an excellent player, and partner for Kane.
So YES PLEASE!

He looks a good prospect to me. Would he be first choice and would he put up with that? I too think 15m seems cheap.
