Tottenham transfer in doubt as Premier League side make new contract offer (Video)

West Bromwich Albion are set to offer Saido Berahino a new contract in an attempt to fend off interest from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur, Mail Sport reports.

It was reported in Mirror Sport earlier in the week that Spurs were set to test the Baggies’ resolve with a £15 million bid for the England U21 international, who impressed many last season after scoring 14 goals in 38 league appearances.

Now Spurs are back on the trail for the 21-year-old, who has returned to full fitness, West Brom are desperate to keep hold of their prized asset and are set to open negotiations with the player with a view to doubling his £30,000-a-week wages.

The North London outfit have been relatively busy in the transfer market this summer and have significantly bolstered their defensive options with the signings of three players in that department.

Centre-halves Kevin Wimmer and Toby Alderweireld have arrived to provide competition to the likes of Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier and Federico Fazio [via BBC Sport and Guardian Sport respectively], while highly-rated full-back Kieran Trippier has also been snapped up [via Guardian Sport].

It appears manager Mauricio Pochettino is set to turn his attentions to bringing in a striker to help ease the pressure on Harry Kane for the new season.

A move for Berahino would certainly be a good signing for Spurs as he could play up front on his own or out wide and has showed his capabilties of scoring against the bigger sides in the league after finding the net against both Chelsea and Liverpool during the 2014-15 campaign.
