West Bromich Albion’s star player and sensation Saido Berahino, could leave the club for ‘bigger and better things’.
In an interaction with Daily Mail, Berahino expressed his ambitions and desires, he said “It doesn’t mean I am going to leave this year or next year, it’s just an ambition I have”
The 21 year old has been linked to Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, both of which would gun for Berahino’s signature given the recent turmoil the two clubs are in.
‘I shall take each game but my ambition is to play Champions League, to play senior football for England, to play in big tournaments, World Cups and Euros. I have a big vision and hope to reach my goals.Leaving West Brom? If that’s what it comes to, it will have to be that.’
Saido Berahino has been a sensation and a revelation to this season of the Premier League. The 21 year old has already scored eight goals in his thirteen appearances for the Albions.
Meanwhile WestBrom’s manager Irvine chipped in, and explained how he hopes to hang on to his favored property, he said, ‘I hope he is not going anywhere because we want to take the club forward. If there is an opportunity to go then it must be the right time.
Although Berahino is awaiting his first England call up, the striker who was born in war-torn Burundi, might be closer to an Anfield move as Champions League have eluded Tottenham Hotspurs since Harry Redknapp.
At the moment, Spurs are nowhere near qualifying for the Champions Leagues spots, sitting eighth with fourteen points, three points adrift of the Champions League berths.
Meanwhile, Liverpool who had a terrible reunion with the Champions League, might just edge Spurs in the race for Berahino’s signature. The Reds, although sit just a position above Spurs on seventh on equal points, look like a much more realistic side to finish for the coveted Champions League spots.
The inclusion of Berahino, for either Spurs or Liverpool, would mean plenty of goals, a trait which these two clubs have lacked. Liverpool, struggle to strike a chemistry with Mario Balotelli and also lack squad depth with only Daniel Sturridge as the next recognized striker, while Spurs have a misfiring Adebayor and Roberto Soldado, both have failed to impress fans and critics, alike.
Saido Berahino could be the answer to either of the club’s goal scoring problems, but the 21 year old is already one of the hottest properties in Europe, and has a contract running with West Bromich Albion till 2017.
A transfer to Liverpool looks more likely and realistic, as Saido Berahino matches the Liverpool frequency of high octane football, which has been somewhat compromise sine the arrival of Mario Balotelli.
