Report: West Ham target available for £10m this summer; could play in Euro 2020 semi-final
FC Barcelona are reportedly open to selling West Ham transfer target Martin Braithwaite this summer.
According to the print edition of AS (04/07, p19), the Catalan side are ‘praying’ Premier League clubs come in for players put up for sale by Barcelona this summer.
One of the names on offer is striker Braithwaite, who can leave for €12m – €15m (£10m – £12m) this window. As per the report, West Ham are interested in the striker.
The Irons are on the hunt for a new attacker this summer, with David Moyes’ side competing in the UEFA Europa League group stages next season.
Although West Ham had a phenomenal Premier League season, with the Hammers finishing sixth in the standings, they spent the majority of the campaign without a recognised striker.
Braithwaite has been a key player for Denmark in this summer’s Euros. Indeed, the striker has led the line for the Scandinavian nation as they booked the semi-finals.
Moreover, the forward will face off against England at Wembley on Wednesday night.
The 30-year-old has scored just once in Euro 2020 but has featured in every match so far for the Danes. Denmark have won the tournament before, winning it in 1992.
With West Ham likely to sign a new striker this summer, Braithwaite could be an ideal option for the club given his price tag and his impressive form in the Euros. And this form might make him a more attractive West Ham transfer option for Moyes in the window.
