Tottenham are all but assured to miss out on West Brom hitman Saido Berahino after the Baggies rejected a fourth bid for the Burundi-born forward.
Tony Pulis’ side are thought to value the player at around the £30m mark, but reports suggest Spurs were unwilling to cross the £25m threshold.
After seeing a fourth Lilywhites offer tossed out on deadline day, the bwin odds moguls go 3/1 that the north Londoners return to The Hawthorns with a fifth bid.
Having seen his side draw two blanks in four Premier League games so far, there’s a definite need for Mauricio Pochettino to bolster his attacking artillery, but the arrival of Son Heung-min last week has eased his desperation.
Combine this with the fact that four bids have been rejected by steadfast West Brom, a fifth offer for Berahino (which a price of 1/5 says won’t be forthcoming) looks increasingly unlikely.
There’s an enormous 11/1 to be had about there being over 5.5 bids from Spurs, but with reports indicating the West Brom decision makers, namely Pulis, have clocked off for the day, expect any further gambits to fall on deaf ears.
