Martin Braithwaite Of Barcelona And Denmark Has Been Offered A Contract By Wolves This Summer

Martin Braithwaite of Barcelona and Denmark has been offered to Wolves.
Last season, the 30-year-old scored seven goals in 42 outings for the Catalans, with three goals in six Champions League meetings.
However, Barcelona boosted their offense this summer by adding Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay on free transfers from Manchester City and Lyon, respectively, limiting Braithwaite’s first-team possibilities dramatically.
Wolves have been offered the chance to sign Barcelona’s Danish forward Martin Braithwaite. The 30-year-old (left) scored seven goals for the Catalans last season but is poised to leave. Wolves have been looking for a striker to help create competition for Raul Jimenez, who has only recently returned to first-team action for the Midlands club after nearly eight months out injured.
Since suffering a catastrophic injury against Arsenal on November 29, the Mexican forward has not played competitively, but he did start the club’s pre-season friendly against Crewe on Saturday.
Fabio Silva, a teen striker, only scored four goals for Wolves as a back-up option to Jimenez last season, leaving new head coach Bruno Lage scrambling to find a replacement for the returning 30-year-old striker in his first season at Molineux.
Conversely, new Wolves manager Bruno Lage (left) welcomed back Raul Jimenez (right) to first-team action. Meanwhile, Barcelona must sell a number of players this summer in order to cut their salary bill and recruit new players like Sergio Aguero, Memphis Depay, and Georginio Wijnaldum, who joined from Liverpool this summer.
Because the club has over LaLiga’s stringent salary cap restriction, it will be unable to sign any new players until the sum is reduced to an acceptable level.
Barcelona will also have to re-register club captain and talisman Lionel Messi, who is now without a club but is set to sign a new five-year contract at the Camp Nou later this summer, despite taking a 50% pay cut.
Antoine Griezmann is in talks to return to previous club Atletico Madrid as part of a swap deal with midfielder Saul Niguez. Braithwaite is unlikely to play alongside Sergio Aguero (left) and Memphis Depay (right) at the club.
Braithwaite, who has eight goals in 53 appearances for the Catalans since a contentious mid-season transfer from Leganes in 2020, would help cut the pay burden even more.
In February, the Spanish club revealed a debt of PS1 billion, and left-back Junior Firpo has already been sold to Leeds for PS13 million to help cover bills.
Braithwaite recently concluded representing Denmark at Euro 2020, scoring once in the summer event – in a 4-0 last-16 triumph against Wales – as the Danes advanced to the semi-finals before being eliminated by England.
Braithwaite has eight goals in just over 50 games for Barcelona, according to Spanish news site Marca. West Ham has also expressed interest in Braithwaite as David Moyes’ team seeks an alternative to Michail Antonio up front.
Jesse Lingard, an attacking midfielder, has returned to Manchester United, while the Hammers have yet to find a striker to replace Sebastian Haller, who left for Ajax in January.
For the first time in the club’s history, the Hammers will compete in the Europa League group stages this season.
