Many Everton fans have been destroying a transfer link to Martin Braithwaite as Mundo Deportivo have reported that the Merseyside club as well as David Moyes’ West Ham United are in talks to sign the FC Barcelona man.
As per the outlet, the La Liga giants are said to be wanting a fee of around €18 million, which is the equivalent of roughly £16.3 million.
Should Everton sign Braithwaite?
However, based off of his stats for the Catalan club, perhaps Carlo Ancelotti should be looking elsewhere. Braithwaite only managed to score one goal in 11 games, hardly a prolific return for someone with that kind of price tag.
Comparing the 29-year old for Barcelona in the Spanish top flight with fellow strikers Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison in the 2019/20 Premier League season, Braithwaite averaged fewer shots and key passes per match, according to Whoscored.
The Danish international has played in England before for Middlesbrough, but his former boss Tony Pulis slammed him for being ‘ungrateful’and disrespectful (via Teesside Live).
These members of the Goodison Park faithful destroyed the news on Twitter, with one EFC supporter even claiming that he would ‘rather keep Sandro’, who has been far from prolific himself for the Toffees, and other Blues calling for him to leave:
Rather keep sandro.
