Tottenham boosted as manager admits he is POWERLESS to stop target leaving

Posted by

Tottenham have been boosted by the news that West Brom manager Tony Pulis has admitted Saido Berahino could leave the club, reports the Metro.

The Baggies boss claimed that if a big enough offer comes in for the 22-year-old, then he will have to be allowed to leave the Midlands side. Spurs have been linked to the forward as they search for someone to back up Harry Kane.

“For me, or any other manager, to sit here and say ‘this player is not for sale’ is complete and utter nonsense,” Pulis said, “You saw it with Bale. If big clubs come in and offer the money, inevitably they go.”

Mauricio Pochettino will need to sign a striker if his side are going to have a chance of bettering their fifth place finish in the Premier League from last season. Kane was heavily relied on for goals last time round, scoring 31 in all competitions and 21 in the league.

However, there is no guarantee that the 22-year-old will do this again, especially as he has no track record to fall back on. Berahino could be a good player to line up with the England international, having netted 20 times in 45 games in the last campaign.
