Braithwaite is unwanted at Barcelona and they are looking to cash in on him. The Catalan giants value the player at €18m.
It will be interesting to see where the striker ends up this summer. Both Everton and West Ham could use some depth in their attacking department.
Everton have a good relationship with the Spanish club having negotiated a few signings with them in recent years. The Toffees signed Mina, Gomes, Digne from them.
It remains to be seen whether they can agree on a deal for Braithwaite as well.
The 29-year-old has 9 goals to his name so far this season and he wouldn’t be a bad signing for Ancelotti’s team. He could partner Calvert-Lewin in the attack. The Danish international can play out wide as well and his versatility will be a bonus for the team he joins.
Convincing the player shouldn’t be too difficult for West Ham or Everton. They can offer him good wages and the chance to showcase his talent at a high level in the Premier League.
