Brendan Rodgers Closing In On A Deal For Another Striker

Brendan RodgersLiverpool are closing in on a £23.5 million deal for West Bromwich Albion star Saido Berahino, according to reports from The Metro

The Baggies striker has asked to leave the Hawthornes this January, and has become a subject of interest for many clubs in the Premier League.

Tottenham have been linked with the English forward, but it seems that Liverpool are set to win the race and bring Berahino to Anfield.

The Reds are hoping that their huge £23.5million offer will be enough to ward off interest from any other clubs, a price that the West Brom hierarchy are almost certain to not reject.

After bursting onto the scene as a promising youngster last season, Berahino has really made a name for himself scoring 8 goals in 21 games for the struggling Baggies.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will hope that Berahino can take some pressure of misfiring summer signing Mario Balotelli, who has yet to score a league goal for the Merseyside club.
