Following the departure of Sebastien Haller to Ajax in January, David Moyes will be reticent to head into the new season without adequately replacing the Ivorian.
This had led to a number of potential targets and links with all and sundry, including Barcelona forward Martin Braithwaite.

It’s claimed that there has been interest forthcoming from Brighton whilst reports elsewhere have suggested it will take a fee in the region of around £13million to land the Dane.

Having proven to still be of a level required during the European Championships, the Dane would still be a worthwhile acquisition – perhaps alongside an additional, younger option.
Capable of playing across the frontline, Moyes would benefit immensely from adding a player of Braithwaite’s quality and experience to the ranks at the London Stadium.
