Liverpool are set to make West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino their first signing of the January transfer window, beating Premier League rivals to his signature.
Other sides in the English top flight who have been tracking his signature include the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
The trio of Premier League sides have been scouting him since the start of the campaign, especially with the England Under-21 international’s good form since the season got under way.
However, it seems as though Brendan Rodgers’ side have won the race for his signature going into the winter window, according to the Daily Star.
Liverpool are said to be on the cusp of securing a £23.5 million move for Berahino, who has scored an excellent seven goals in 18 league games this season.
The Reds need a new striker, with both Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert struggling to settle since their summer arrivals.
