West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino is set to hold discussions with Tony Pulis this week, potentially paving the way to a £15 million move to Liverpool, as reported by the Daily Star.
Berahino’s outlook on his time at West Brom could be demonstrated by the fact that he didn’t celebrate any of the four goals that he scored against Gateshead in the FA Cup at the weekend – a game which the Midlands side won 7-0.
The 21 year old is expected to be told by Pulis that the former Stoke manager is keen to continue working with him, despite Berahino’s recent attitude issues.
Pulis is believed to pride himself on working with players with perceived attitude problems.
However, Berahino might push for a move.
The England under-21 international is believed to see his future with a big club, one that is likely to qualify for the Champions League in the near future.
Should the talks between boss and player not work out, it could play into the hands of Liverpool, who are willing to offer West Brom £15 million for the young star during this month.
