Barcelona

West Ham set for transfer battle with Brighton, Burnley and Norwich for Barcelona striker Martin Braithwaite


WEST HAM will reportedly face an uphill battle to land Barcelona ace Martin Braithwaite as a further THREE Premier League sides are said to be interested in signing the forward.

Hammers boss David Moyes – who recently penned a new deal at the London Stadium – is keen to bolster his attacking options this summer.

But it’s been claimed Moyes will face competition for his services from Brighton, Burnley and newly-promoted Norwich City.

Spanish newspaper Sport claims the trio are also ‘on the prowl’ for Braithwaite’s signature.

The English quartet, however, could end up missing out on Braithwaite as Barca are reportedly in talks with an unknown Russian club over a deal for the 30-year-old.

Braithwaite joined Barcelona from Leganes last February for £15.5million after the Catalans were given an emergency exception to sign him following an injury to Ousmane Dembele.

The 30-year-old has made 58 appearances for the La Liga giants, scoring eight goals and providing four assists for Ronald Koeman’s side.

Braithwaite has fallen down the Nou Camp pecking order as of late but is reportedly hellbent on fighting for his place in the starting XI.

The football world was stunned by Barca’s decision to sign the Dane, who reckons the club took a chance on him because they saw he has what it takes to play at a high level.

He said of his transfer: “They could see that that I have the abilities to play in a lot higher level.

“They could also see my game is what they needed.

“That’s also what they told me, that I got the mindset to play in a big club with the pressure.

“I’ve been increasing my performances, jumping up another level.
