Barcelona are reportedly closing in on the signing of Leganes forward Martin Braithwaite, who will act as a replacement for Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez.

Barcelona are reportedly ready to push through a deal for Leganes forward Martin Braithwaite.

Having been granted permission to sign an emergency replacement for Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez, Barcelona must add to their squad in the coming days.

Despite being linked with numerous players, Cadena Cope claims that the Catalan giants are ready to secure the signature of Braithwaite.

The report says that Barcelona are willing to meet the €20m (£16.66m) release clause of the Denmark international, who has previously endured a disappointing period at Middlesbrough in the Premier League.

During the current campaign, Braithwaite has contributed eight goals and two assists from 25 outings in La Liga and the Copa del Rey.
