Tottenham are reportedly ready to offer Andros Townsend and Aaron Lennon to West Bromwich Albion in order to sign striker Saido Berahino.

According to the Mirror, the north London club are keen to beat Newcastle United, who are also targeting a move for the England international with a straight cash offer.

Mauricio Pochettino has made it a priority to strengthen his forward line this summer, and provide backup to Harry Kane, who shouldered most of the goal-scoring burden last season, after Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado failed to meet expectations.

The Argentine manager is set to offload the underperforming duo and make additions to the squad to address his team's struggle to score goals during the course of the 2014/15 campaign.

Berahino was part of the England U21 team at the European U21 Championships, but returned home after the first game with a knee injury. He is valued at around £20m ($31.7m) by the Premier League side and Spurs are hoping that an offer of two players-plus-cash should put them ahead of the Magpies in the race for the striker's signature.

Townsend and Lennon are both England internationals, but do not feature in the former Southampton manager's plans for next season at White Hart Lane, and with Tony Pulis looking to bolster the Baggies attack, the offer could tempt him to cash out on his star forward.

Newcastle, on the other hand, are reportedly willing to match West Brom's asking price for the striker and are even willing to pay the entire fee upfront rather than in instalments.

The St James's Park outfit have also run the rule over Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin, but are unsure if the striker is worth the £15m price tag the club have slapped on him.

The 21-year-old striker has been a target for the Premier League big guns since the January transfer window, with Berahino also hinting at an exit after confirming his desire to play at a higher level.
