West Bromwich striker Saido Berahino hasn't had a great time at the Hawthorns ever since the end of the 2014-15 season. Pegged by many to build on his 14 league goals mark from last season, the 21-year-old has only seen the pitch 11 times so far, scoring 3 goals in the league. To make matters worse for the player, he's been demoted to West Brom's U21 side - and that put his Premier League suitors Chelsea and Tottenham on high alert according to the Sun.

In the last transfer window, Berahino's move to Tottenham was rejected due to West Bromwich chairman Jeremy Peace 's refusal to accept Spurs' terms over his transfer. Although he's supposedly rated at £25 millon by the Baggies, his market value has certainly dropped over time due to his bad showings and limited time on the pitch, as well as his contract situation - with or without the "homegrown" tax. Nevertheless, Berahino seems set to move out of his club very soon, with Chelsea as a possible destination.
