Possible Sturridge replacement set to disappoint Liverpool by insisting on Tottenham transfer

Posted by

Liverpool‘s hopes of signing Saido Berahino as a potential replacement for Daniel Sturridge have been dented by the news that the forward is only keen on a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

As reported by the Mirror earlier this week, Jurgen Klopp has steadily grown impatient with England striker Sturridge and his litany of England complaints, with the tabloid reporting that the crocked hitman faced a battle to save his Liverpool career.

Should the Reds finally give up on the former Chelsea and Manchester City striker, or decide that they need to invest to compensate for his regular inactivity, the Mirror report that they may turn to the West Bromwich Albion hitman.

According to the Mirror, the Reds are considering Berahino as an option should they decide to call time on Sturridge’s Anfield stay, with the young English forward, who scored 14 goals in 38 Premier League games last term, seemingly boasting the kind of qualities that appeal to Klopp.

However, as reported by The Sun, Berahino would be prepared to reject Liverpool—or other suitors Stoke City and Newcastle United—in order to seal a move to White Hart Lane, with the tabloid noting that the player’s “heart is set on White Hart Lane.”

According to the Mirror [as above], Spurs are planning to offer the Albion a £10 million-plus-Andros Townsend deal in order to tempt the Baggies to offload one of their prized possessions.
