Baggies could opt to cash-in on troubled Anfield target.
West Brom are ready to consider the sale of forward Saido Berahino in January according to the Guardian.
Incoming boss Tony Pulis has been tasked with the job of keeping the Baggies up in the top flight and by all accounts chairman Jeremy Peace will look to garner £20m from the sale of Berahino which in turn could be used to bring in three or four key additions.
The 21 year old has netted nine goals this term and is comfortably the Bagggies’ top scorer but he’s had some issues of late, chiefly in relation to a drink-driving incident, and as such is a player the club may feel they can afford to cash-in on.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is known to court Berahino and given his side’s lack of effective striking options at present a January bid for the England Under-21 international seems plausible.
Mario Balotello and Rickie Lambert have both struggled for form since their summer moves to Merseyside and Rodgers has also been without chief tormentor Daniel Sturridge for most of the season.
