Rico Henry: Walsall defender linked with Tottenham

Tottenham have again been linked with Ben Chilwell and Rico Henry – but face disappointment in their bid to sign Saido Berahino.

Arsenal are reported to have made an offer worth £4million to sign Chilwell from Leicester City, but both The Times and Daily Mirror claim Spurs have officially now registered their interest after having a close look at the 19-year-old in their recent FA Cup ties against Claudio Ranieri’s side.

The two newspapers also repeat the much-reported claim that Spurs are tracking Walsall’s Henry, who has been linked with several of the Premier League’s top clubs in recent months.

The Times, meanwhile, says West Brom have refused to lower their £25million asking price for Berahino.

It was reported on Wednesday that Spurs were preparing a final offer of £17million for the unsettled striker, but Albion are sticking to their guns despite Berahino falling out of favour with Tony Pulis this season.

The Daily Star claims the north Londoners are instead focusing their efforts on Barcelona’s Sandro Ramirez.
