Tony Pulis has indicated Saido Berahino would be allowed to leave West Brom if a top-four Premier League team made an approach for his services.
Berahino has been a key figure for West Brom this season, scoring 20 goals in all competitions for the Midlands club.
His prowess in front of goal has enabled West Brom to ensure survival with relative ease and the forward has been linked with a move to Liverpool at various points during the campaign.
Ahead of West Brom’s final game of the season at Arsenal, Pulis said: “If he plays well at this club then a top-four club might come in and West Brom will not stop him as long as the deal is right.
“We hope and pray he stays with us because he has a lot more to come and we don’t think he is at the end of his development.
“If a top-four club comes in and the clubs agree a fee and it’s all done, everyone can shake hands and say what a great job he has done for the club.
“Not only has he been here since he was a young lad, and we have looked after him, but the club have made money on him and we have to reinvest in other people – that’s a fact of life.
“Saido has been in the shop window for the last year. There’s no problem with that, the most important thing is Saido keeps that to one side and concentrates on his football.
“That’s why people are talking about him, because he has done the business on the pitch.”
