Stoke have made a £20m bid for West Brom striker Saido Berahino.
The Potters have offered £17m, with £3m in add-ons, for the England Under-21 international, who has one year remaining on his contract.
The fee is close to West Brom’s valuation for the 22-year-old, but the deal may be held up until the club find a replacement, with West Ham’s Diafra Sakho one of their targets.
Crystal Palace and Watford are also interested in signing Berahino.
The forward, who came through the youth system at West Brom, tried to force a move away from the club last the summer after the Baggies rejected two bids from Premier League rivals Tottenham.
Newcastle also had a £21m bid turned down in January.
Berahino scored seven goals in 35 appearances for West Brom last season.
