Baggies expect Spurs to cough up over £15m…
West Brom boss Alan Irvine claims that Spurs will have to shell out way over £15m for his star striker Saido Berahino, reports the Daily Mail.
Tottenham are seriously interested in the young forward, who’s started this season in excellent form. Berahino’s scored five for the Baggies, and has alerted the attention of Mauricio Pochettino as a result.
Irvine though has warned Berahino’s suitors that the young striker will not come cheap.
“It doesn’t sound a lot. I would be absolutely astonished if anyone could sign Saido from us for £15million,” Irvine began.
“You look at some of the fees going around in the transfer market that’s just been, everybody seems to start at £7million.
‘Ross McCormack went for £11million Championship to Championship. What the right figure is I have absolutely no idea and I wouldn’t make the decision as far as that was concerned.
“But £15million doesn’t sound like a lot of money for a talented, young, English player with great potential who is playing really, really well in the Premier League at the moment and who is scoring goals. It would have to be higher than that.
