Liverpool Take an Interest in Spurs Target Sadio Berahino

West Bromwich Albion striker Sadio Berahino has been a peripheral figure at the Hawthorns this season after the West Midlands outfit continually rebuffed attempts by Tottenham Hotspur to take the England U-21 man to White Hart Lane, and though the London side are expected to renew their interest when the transfer window re-opens, rumour has it that Liverpool will look to pip them to his signature.

This, of course, wouldn’t be the first time that the Reds were credited with an interest in Berahino with the media linking him to the Anfield outfit becoming somewhat of a January tradition for the gossip mongerers. Regardless, with a bit of an injury crisis going down on Merseyside, bringing in a mobile striker in the mould of the much maligned youngster wouldn’t be the worst idea.

Still, that would largely depend on his mentality. Baggies boss Tony Pulis has made no secret of the fact that Berahino needs a major attitude adjustment, but in the right environment and a with a coach like Jurgen Klopp putting an arm around him, he could very well return to the kind of phenomenal form that generated so much interest in him to begin with. With that being said, Harry Redknapp isn’t convinced and he’s warned Spurs to steer clear.

“They’re talking about the boy at West Brom, but I’m not sure about him,” the former Spurs boss told talkSPORT. “It would be a bit of a gamble. His attitude does seem the greatest and you don’t need that,” mused the veteran manager. “There’s a great spirit at Tottenham, a great group of young players all pulling for each other and the manager has done a fantastic job. You don’t want to take any chances and disrupt that really.”

    Spurs fan here. If we’re talking about the same report, I think it had you guys linked at £25m+ which is waaaaay too much considering his contract is running down and he’s been acting out. Having said that, you’ve been paying big fees for the last few years so I wouldn’t be too surprised.

    I just don’t see where he fits into your team. Origi and Bentekkers should be a good enough front two with the odd appearance from Sturridge too, why do you need to take the risk on Berahino?

    Spurs certainly need another striker or two and I think at closer to £15m he’d make sense for us. He can play with Kane or instead of him and they have experience together for England so it could all come down to Kane’s experience of Berahino’s attitude and approach.

    I think he fits better at Spurs but I don’t know if you guys are ready to give up on Benteke yet. We’ll take him if you are!!!

    Also a Spurs fan. I know Pool are desperate, but unlike you, I’d happily pass on Adebayor version 2.0. Remember how people were trying to do us down, by claiming that HK was probably a one-season wonder? And then when he was taking time to get into the groove,they got noisier? Well quite apart from his off the pitch antics, I’ve seen nothing to suggest that SB is not also a one-season wonder.But that didn’t stop Pool from buying Carroll?

    Depends on the price…I wouldn’t risk £20m+ on him but if less then why not…on form he’s better than the other 3 we have and Sturridge is too busy on Instagram!
