Officials at Everton Football Club have reported to inquire West Brom about the availability of striker Saido Berahino. Recent reports coming from West Brom show that Berahino is refusing to sign any contract extensions with the Baggies.

Tony Pulis and the “higher ups” at West Brom may want to cash in now on the forward instead of waiting for the summer. West Brom could make a pretty penny on the forward in the summer. The possibility of the Baggies capitalizing on a high demand for goal-scorers this season may see Berahino depart in the January transfer window for what could be a higher fee.

Clubs from England, France and Italy are lining up for Saido Berahino’s services, which could see West Brom finally give “the ok” to a transfer. The Baggies could instigate a bidding war between the clubs in England alone with Stoke City, West Ham United, Newcastle United and now Everton inquiring about Berahino. European clubs like OGC Nice, Inter Milan and AS Roma have also expressed interest in signing Saido. The fact that Roma and most likely Nice will be in the Champions League next season increases their chances of acquiring the English International.

Everton have been relying on goals coming from mostly the towering Romelu Lukaku this season and are searching to add more attacking depth to their squad. Everton’s Manager Ronald Koeman also has Arouna Kone and Enner Valencia on his roster but both have failed to score a single Premier League goal or assist this 2016-2017 campaign.

The Toffees recent 2-0 Boxing Day victory over Leicester City moved them up to seventh place but also depicted the issue surrounding Goodison Park. The goals that secured the three points for Everton came from none other than Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas. Lukaku has tallied ten goals in the English Premier League for Everton along with three assists. The next top scorers and contributors to Everton’s attack are Ross Barkley with two goals and two assists. Gareth Barry and Kevin Mirallas both have two goals and one assist each.

Saido Berahino has only started in three matches for West Brom this season and will more than likely be leaving in 2017. Berahino could be the perfect addition that Koeman and Everton need to push deeper in the English Premier League for a chance at a spot in a European competition.
