The January transfer window is now in full swing, despite not many big transfer dealings happening at this point in time. According to the London Evening Standard, Chelsea could be about to change that, as they are now the favourites to land West Brom’s want away striker, Saido Berahino.
Berahino, 22, was heavily tipped to join Tottenham Hotspur last summer but that move never went through, and since then it has felt like he hasn’t really given his all for the Baggies, who clearly want to sell him and get a decent fee for the Englishman.
Chelsea are a side who are in somewhat disarray with their current strikers, with both Radamel Falco and Loic Remy misfiring. Guus Hiddink is clearly trying to change that by bringing in Berahino, who’ll probably play backup to the misfit Diego Costa.
