Tottenham Hotspur remain interested in QPR striker as they seek Saido Berahino alternative

CMwTzIcVEAAexWETottenham Hotspur yesterday had a bid rejected for West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino, with which the club now look set to bid more than the £18million currently offered.

As a result Spurs are reportedly pursuing other options, with the Daily Express claiming QPR striker Charlie Austin is one of those targets.

Spurs have been linked with the forward for some time, given that he presumably fits the ‘£10-15million’ mould that Daniel Levy is searching for.

Austin scored in the Rangers’ 2-2 home draw with Cardiff last week, and looks set to continue his fine form from the 2014/15 Premier League season. Will he be Tottenham’s new man?

    I don’t know why we are bothering with Berahino, he is only mediocre at best and inconsistent to boot. There are plenty of strikers out there costing £20m or less who would leave him standing. I’m sure the excellent scouting team we have aqquired over the past year can come up with some much better alternatives, after all that;s what we are paying them for. Now, COYS !!

    I’d feel really let down if we get Austin instead of Saido.
    This team needs dynamism as much as I respect Austin’s goalscoring exploits
    last season his all round game is not what we need it would seem slightly a desperate move from us .

      Where would the goals come from if HK’s rested or injured? Neither Berahino nor N’Jie are prolific. Charlie Austin has scored 87 goals since 2011. (Berahino, 19).

    I wish we’d just sign him, im telling you he will scire a hatrick against us if we don’t, you mark my words…..

    Please let Spurs sign Austin rather than Berahino. The toner has scored almost five times as many goals as the latter since 2011.

    Unfortunately, all the football stories in the Express are just made up.
