Liverpool To Miss Out On Berahino As West Brom Refuse To Lower Asking Price

The Baggies are demanding a fee of around £20m for the England Under-21 international.

West Bromwich Albion look unlikely to sell young striker Saido Berahino during the January transfer window as neither of his interested parties are willing to meet the Baggies’ £20m asking price, report the Mail, with both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur only willing to offer a fee of around half of that for the England Under 21 star.

Berahino has been arguably the West Midlands club’s best player this season despite their struggles, particularly under Alan Irvine before the appointment of Tony Pulis, under whom they are yet to concede a goal, and he has caught the eye with a rare combination of skill, pace and composure.

However, there has also been suggestions of an attitude problem and behavioural issues away from the pitch, which even led Irvine to drop the Burundi-born forward at one point. West Brom, though, do not appear to believe that this should negatively impact upon his valuation.

Despite being interested in signing Berahino, both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are unwilling to meet the £20m demands of West Brom and are instead looking to pay between £10m and £12m for the player, making a January deal unlikely.
