Tottenham keen to sign 20-goal Premier League forward to replace Roberto Soldado

Tottenham Hotspur are looking at signing West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino as a replacement for the departing Roberto Soldado, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The north London outfit are short of quality up front at the moment due to some poor form from experienced frontman Emmanuel Adebayor, who has proven a big disappointment at White Hart Lane in the last couple of years.

Soldado was also a flop in the Premier League prior to his move to Villarreal this week (as confirmed on BBC Sport), scoring only once in the top flight last season as Spurs found themselves overly reliant on the superb goalscoring form of exciting youngster Harry Kane.

Berahino could be the answer to Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino’s problems, with the prolific England Under-21 international scoring a total of 20 goals in all competitions last season, as well as producing a series of dazzling displays.

Although the 22-year-old remains inexperienced at the very top level, he looks like having a bright future in the game after shining as a first-team regular for the Baggies.

Tony Pulis is keen to keep hold of Berahino this summer, the Telegraph adds, and it seems the club could set his asking price as high as £25m, although Tottenham hope an offer of £15m could be enough to make them consider the player’s sale before the transfer window slams shut.

The Albion recently signed Venezuela forward Salomon Rondon on a four-year deal [as per the club’s official website], and the former Zenit St. Petersburg man could feasibly be considered as a replacement for Berahino should he depart.
