West Bromwich Albion target £38million Berahino replacement!

The Saido Berahino saga looks to be drawing to a close, with the striker moving closer to the Hawthorns exit door, and his current club West Bromwich Albion have already identified the man they want to replace.

Tony Pulis has set his sights on signing Watford striker Odion Ighalo, who earlier this week was sensationally the target of a £38million bid from the mega rich Chinese Super League.

However, that bid was knocked back by the Hornets after the striker told the club he had no desire to move to the Far East and would prefer to continue his career in England.

West Bromwich Albion will not bid anything close to that of the Chinese club, but will probably have to reinvest the vast majority, if not a little more than what they recoup from Berahino’s sale.

Berahino was strongly linked with a move to Spurs last summer, whilst Everton and Newcastle also shows an interest in the England U21 international, although Stoke appears to be the most likely destination for the 22-year old this summer.
