Stoke City have made an official bid for out of favour West Brom striker Saido Berahino, according to Sky Sports.
Berahino has been out of form ever since his botched move to Tottenham back in August 2015. He made 31 Premier League appearances in the 2015-16 season, scoring just four times, but has been absent from most of the Baggies' squads this year.
He had been sent away from the club to deal with a reported weight problem in 2016, and has only five appearances in all competitions this season. Stoke made an offer for the former England U21 striker last summer, reported to be around £20m, but their latest bid is believed to be lower.
Berahino has been offered a new deal to stay at the Hawthorn
"The club has offered him a new contract not just this week, but in previous months too," West Brom boss Tony Pulis said last week
"They've been in negotiations with Saido, so we'll just see how that pans out. The deals have been on the table for the boy and his agent - we'll see how that pans out.
"Again, we've hit the funny month. He's only got one more month left of this if he doesn't sign, so that's probably a bonus for me.
"If we sell him we will work very, very hard to get a replacement in. If we don't sell him, we'll have to work very, very hard to get him back to what he was 18 months ago."
Newcastle United made a bid of £21m for Berahino last January which was also dismissed, while Watford and Leicester have also seen their advances rejected over the past year.
