The Baggies are adamant Saido Berahino will not be allowed to leave the Hawthorns for anything less than £30m.
West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis is reluctant to lose the England youngster but is prepared to listen to offers if the price is right.
Berahino, who scored 14 goals in 32 games last season, looked to have sealed his fate when he openly admitted his desire “to move on to bigger things”.
Any move to Liverpool might be difficult for the 21-year-old because his agent, Aidy Ward, also represents Raheem Sterling, and the Reds are far from happy with Ward’s actions.
Newcastle were also rumoured to be interested in the Baggies strikers but the Magpies owner, Mike Ashley, is thought to be reluctant to pay the £30m asking-price.
Should Berahino fulfil his desires this summer, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City all reportedly interested in the West Brom forward, Pulis is planning to move for Chelsea’s Patrick Bamford.
Bamford, another England Under-21 international, was influential in Middlesbrough’s push for promotion last season, picking up Championship Player of the Year award in the process.
