According to reports from The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur will revive their interest in Chelsea and Manchester United strike target Saido Berahino during the January transfer window. 

After netting 14 times in 38 appearances last season, the West Bromwich Albion star was subject to a series of bids from Spurs during the summer – the last and most lucrative reportedly worth £23million. But the two clubs couldn’t agree on the structure of the deal, leaving Berahino to infamously blast chairman Jeremy Peace on Twitter as the transfer window drew to a close.

It has created a sense of bad blood between the two boardrooms, further amplified by the 22-year-old failing to live up to last season’s form since having his ‘head turned’ by the north London outfit. Berahino has netted just three times across all competitions this term and is currently awaiting his first start in the Premier League since October.

That could see the Baggies refuse to do business. But The Telegraph claim Spurs are ready to go again for the 5 foot 11 forward after manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted the club need to find an understudy to first-choice striker Harry Kane in the coming transfer window.

However, interest from Chelsea and Manchester United could prove problematic. Both clubs have scouted Berahino this season according to The Telegraph and he’s been linked with Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford moves by other sources as well.

Recent reports suggest interim manager Guus Hiddink wants the Blues to sign a home-grown striker in January with the Baggies prodigy at the top of his list, whilst United were linked during the summer and are expected to be on the lookout for added firepower next month.

The Red Devils have scored the fewest goals of any side in the Premier League’s top six this season, with strike force Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney netting just six league goals between them.

    And Spurs might get him if they offer a realistic fee without all the add ons and appearance money, but I can’t see Levy not trying to do it on the cheap, it’s in his dna.
