Berahino is expected to leave West Brom this summer after seeing a move to Spurs blocked by Albion last year and Stoke are chasing his signature.

Reports claimed that Stoke had a deal in the bag after agreeing a fee of £16million with Albion but now some suggest that Saints are ready to nip in and take him to St Mary’s.

Saints need attacking reinforcements following Sadio Mane’s £34million move to Liverpool, despite the recent acquisition of former Stoke target Nathan Redmond, and they have set their sights on 22-year-old Berahino.

Berahino is due to fall out of contract next summer but Albion have no intention of allowing him to leave on the cheap, with reports indicating a fee in the region of £16million-£20million would be required to convince them to sell.
