Calum Chambers moved to Arsenal for 16m based on 20 games. Strikers always cost a lot more than defenders and Berahino's one of the best young striker in the country. Even Zaha cost 16m and he was far from the best player in the championship that season and was always extremely patchy in form. Maybe not 25m, but if he can hit 15 goals this season it'll certainly be around there. Consider people like Troy Deeney had bids of 12m in the summer. Not too mention Shane Long, whom Berahino has already almost matched his best goalscoring season in this league.

Besides which, it'll be his all round game that'll be impressing as much as his goalscoring at the moment. His touch is excellent, he's developed into a really good player with his back to goal and keeps the ball well, and crucially for a striker his off the ball movement is superb.

Absolutely...for a striker movement will determine for me how good you can be, add that with some pace and good finishing ability and it makes for an exciting future of watching this lad.

I really believe he could go to the very top

Calm down, calm down, the kid has had a good start to the season, BUT £25m !!!!
What price would Raheem Sterling generate then?

I seriously think some people are losing perspective here.

£25m easily. Its not what he is worth, its what these big clubs would be stupid enough to pay. JP will take them to the cleaners.

  • West Bromwich Albion are preparing a new contract for striking sensation Saido Berahino as the England Under 21 international continues on his hot goal-scoring streak.
  • That comes just ten months after they first tied the youngster down with a £20,000 a week, three-and-a-half year contract.
  • If Albion ever sell Berahino - as the leading scoring Englishman in the country it would probably take an offer double that to even bring them to the table.

If we sold him I would not like to see us replace him with a 30 year old that would do us no good a a club

I have no problem with Demba Ba but not as a replacement for Berahino.

Hearing a 4+1 year deal is on the cards, also worth 40k plus. Likely to sign within next couple of weeks.

That's a good contract for both sides, if he keeps scoring there's no chance of him seeing it out. It's all about increasing the eventual fee. God help us if/when we sell as the Internet moaners will complain no matter what happens.

I think at the end of last season, if he was sold for anything in between 4-5 mill, a lot of albion fans would have took that. Let's rewind two/three weeks ago, after that Everton defeat, and we were all looking at where our goals were coming from. I just find everybody branding around these ridiculous fees about a bit silly after a couple of good goals and a few well placed penalties. I have been impressed with his hold up and link up play though. I guess we'll see what his value is come January.

On the basis of tonight's game against Estonia, I would have had Berahino as a shoe in, Wellbeck was utterly woeful, and how does Lambert get in?

I know Saido was quite rightly saved for the U21 game, but he would do a damn sight better than Wellbeck and Lambert, lallana and the ret of them anyday.

He plays for an unfashionable team so doesn't get picked, simple as.  Even in the U21 game he was required to play as a winger as Harry Kane was the target man, a position Kane doesn't even play for Spurs.

As soon as Berahino signs for a "big club" he'll be selected for England just like what happened with Bryan Robson.

factually correct, however us owd uns can cite Statham, brown, astle as players who should have got England caps aplently but were overlooked for players from more fashionable clubs.

You may well think it's silly but thats the current market for an English goalscorer

Why  there all this talk of selling the kid, WHY do we "have to sell2 him, its not like we don't have a pot to pee in like we did when we sold Robson and Cunningham where we were only surviving by selling our top players. We re on a financial "even keel" now. Don't get me wrong if silly money is offered then we should look at it but he's only been in our first team five minutes, lets get some usage out of him before we offload him to the highest bidder, and by that I mean three or four years, not half a season FFS !!. A lot can change in those years, just ask Man United.

Really gets my goat all this talk of how much he's worth and this team or that team are looking at him and preparing bids, its all going to unsettle him and this type of crap is adding fuel to the fire. I personally hope JP has the cahoonas to tell anyone who comes what to do with themselves, at least for the next 4 years ( or 5 if he signs his new contract )  >:( >:( >:(

I think the contract simply increases his fee. There's no chance unfortunately that he will see out the contract. I think he will stick it out this season and next season. I don't think it's a case of wanting to sell him, but if he has a few good seasons the value will just rocket.

Agreed, in the projected future where by he scores 16 this season and 20 the next and we're still midtable, then I for one can't argue with the lad moving on, we get a huge fee to invest and he gets to play at a higher level.

The concept of keeping him forever and paying no regards to his wants is unrealistic.

I'm aware at this point some droll wag will have a go about JP investing a windfall, but that's another issue.

Anyone who thinks that Saido will be in an albion shirt at the start of next season - assuming his continued improvement - is in dreamland. Its not a case of Albion wanting to sell or JP having ambition or the balls to say he is not for sale. The reality is that bigger and wealthier clubs will come calling and once his head has been turned, which it most surely will be, he will go. That is just the reality of the Premier League and our place in the natural order of things, there simply is nothing we can do about it. The best we can do is improve our league position and pay - as we have started to do - higher wages and thus reduce the number of clubs that he might go to. If one of the top 5 or 6 come for him he will be gone! But a measure of how far we have come is that it the number of British clubs he might go to is a lot smaller than it used to be!
