Liverpool FC transfer news - Saido Berahino puts Brendan Rodgers on red alert

  • West Brom striker wants to move on to bigger things in summer
Saido Berahino wants to join a bigger club in the summer - with Liverpool heading the race to sign him

Saido Berahino has issued a 'come and get me' plea to Liverpool after admitting he will look to leave West Brom for bigger and better things during the summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old striker has been linked with a move to the Reds and Tottenham Hotspur after impressing during the first half of the season, netting 14 times in 28 appearances for the Baggies.

That tally includes a goal at Anfield when Albion went down 2-1, while Berahino was also on target in a 2-2 draw against Manchester United at the Hawthorns and struck four times in an FA Cup clash with Gateshead.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers resisted the temptation to make his move in the January window as West Brom officials insisted their prize asset was not for sale, with Premier League survival far more valuable than any transfer fee.

However, the player himself has now paved the way for a summer switch, insisting he will help Albion stay up and then seek to take his career to the next level.

"I'm taking care of the short term right now and if I keep scoring the goals and doing well for West Bromwich Albion, I know the future will be bright for me and that I will go a long way," Berahino told Sky Sports News.

"I know I've got to stay focused on scoring the goals to keep West Bromwich in the Premier League. If I can keep them in the Premier League and score as many goals as I can, I'm pretty sure the fans wouldn't mind me pushing on with a move to bigger things - but first I want to ensure they stay up.

"I'm just flattered to be linked with all these sorts of teams, but I'll stay focused. This is my second season in the Premier League, I've still got a long way to go, I'm learning a lot from all sorts of different players, so I just look forward to each game and try and enjoy it as much as possible."

Spurs are also believed to be monitoring Berahino's situation, despite giving Harry Kane a new long-term deal and signing Dele Alli as one for the future, but Liverpool are firm favourites to swoop at this stage.
