Tottenham are set to make one last push to sign Saido Berahino from West Bromwich Albion despite the two clubs falling out over a potential deal this season. Spurs are struggling to score goals and Daniel Levy is ready to break the bank to bring in at least one attacker, after securing only three points from their first four games.
The Mirror reports that Tottenham are willing to make an improved offer for the striker after having had a bid turned down last week by the Baggies. Mauricio Pochettino is desperate to sign a forward after allowing Roberto Soldado to leave the club to join Villareal.
Harry Kane has failed to replicate last season's form this time around and needs more support to take the pressure off his shoulders. Berahino was left out of West Brom's squad for the last two games citing speculation over his future and may be a major topic for discussion on deadline day.
Tottenham have also signed Clinton Njie this window but the manager says he is not fully fit to start a game yet. "It's difficult, because he was injured in pre-season with Lyon and his fitness levels are not yet there," Pochettino said, as quoted by the Mirror.
Meanwhile, Spurs have also been linked with a move for Brazilian striker Pato, but the player revealed that he is still in the dark over his future. He would add some much needed mobility up top for the north London club should they fail to land Berahino, but his injury problems over the course of his career will be a major concern for the manager.
"I think today, tomorrow, I will find out what's going to happen. I would like to stay, but we'll see tomorrow. I have to wait and see. My desire is to stay, but it's not entirely down to me," Pato said, regarding his transfer.
