West Ham are believed to be embroiled in a tug-of-war for Toulouse forward Martin Braithwaite, with The Daily Mail claiming that the Hammers are going head-to-head with Sunderland for the attacker’s signature.
The report stipulates that the North East outfit are ready to make a £4 million bid for the Denmark international, with Slaven Bilic’s men ready to enter the bidding war also.
Braithwaite has been on the French club’s books since 2013 and has proven himself as a potent goal threat in Ligue 1.
The 24-year-old is also one of the rising stars of Danish football and has made 14 appearances for the Scandinavian country’s national team, scoring once.
Braithwaite is versatile enough to play as a centre forward or on one of the flanks, while his ability in the air has also caught the eye for Toulouse.
Given the modest transfer fee being touted, the attacker could well be an appealing bargain option for Bilic’s men this summer.
