The 22-year-old bagged 20 goals in all competitions last season but is yet to net this term and was left out of Tony Pulis’s squad for the encounter with Chelsea on Sunday.
Pulis has been highly critical of the transfer window format, stating;
“It’s absolutely ridiculous. For it to be going through the start of the season is ridiculous. We should be talking about this game. This wouldn’t be an issue, a problem.
“Saido is a great lad. It happens where it can be disruptive, and it has been disruptive,” he concluded, via the Daily Mirror.
White Hart Lane boss Mauricio Pochettino could well do with strengthening his attacking options, with far too much being expected of young England international Harry Kane.
The Spurs star hit 31 goals last season in all competitions but has looked tired and overworked thus far in 2015/16. He still awaits his first goal of the campaign, and as such the North London side would do well to bring a solid supporting option in the final third.
Pochettino’s side have started the season in uncertain fashion, losing their opener against Man United and then drawing with both Stoke City & Leicester City, and Tottenham have certainly lacked a cutting edge up front. The addition of Berahino could help alleviate that issue.
