Watford have made a bid for West Brom striker Saido Berahino, Sky sources understand.
Three Premier League clubs have enquired about the former England Under-21 forward, with Leicester believed to be interested in signing the 22-year-old if Jamie Vardy decides to join Arsenal.
Berahino has suffered a difficult 10 months at The Hawthorns after failing to force through a move to Tottenham last summer and then seeing a £21m bid from Newcastle fail in January.
He scored just seven goals in 35 appearances last season having fallen out of favour with manager Tony Pulis during the first half of the campaign following Spurs' failed £25m deadline day bid.
Tony Pulis said in May he had no intention of selling Berahino on the cheap, but with just one year left on his contract, chairman Jeremy Peace may finally be tempted to part with the Baggies' youth product.
Tottenham are not believed to be one of the clubs interested having moved onto other targets this summer, while champions Leicester failed with a £20m bid for Watford striker Tory Deeney on Thursday.
