Everton learn asking price for Martin Braithwaite

Everton will not need to break the bank to sign Martin Braithwaite in the summer transfer window, as he has a release clause worth €600,000 in his contract with Espanyol.

According to a report by Spanish outlet AS, Martin Braithwaite is the subject of interest from Everton. Other Premier League clubs are also keen on signing the 33-year-old from La Liga club Espanyol in the summer transfer window. And the veteran striker will not cost a bomb, as he has a release clause worth €600,000 in his contract with the Catalan outfit.

Martin Braithwaite: Resurrecting his career at Espanyol

Martin Braithwaite has resurrected his stuttering career since joining Espanyol from Barcelona nearly two years ago. The Dane was reluctant to leave the Blaugrana before his move across Catalonia. However, he has gone from strength to strength at the Stage Front Stadium.

The 33-year-old was excellent in the 2023/24 season, in particular, contributing to 25 goals in 45 appearances across all competitions by finding the back of the net 22 times while providing five assists. Braithwaite’s exploits have helped Espanyol return to La Liga after taking the scenic route to return to the top flight.

Braithwaite’s performances for Espanyol have not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several well-known clubs across Europe. A move to the Premier League might be on the cards, with Everton among his prospective suitors heading into the summer transfer window.

England return on the horizon?

Everton’s interest in Martin Braithwaite is surprising. The Toffees have already bolstered their attack by signing Iliman Ndiaye from Marseille. Everton might have secured the services of the Senegalese international in anticipation of Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s impending departure.

Widespread reports have heavily linked the English striker with a summer move away from Everton, with Newcastle United vying for his signature. However, with Ndiaye arriving at Goodison Park, it is unclear how Braithwaite might fit into the scheme of things. Nevertheless, the 33-year-old will not cost a bomb, with the latest report revealing his price.

The Danish attacker’s contract with Espanyol has a meagre release clause worth €600,000. So, Braithwaite can be a low-risk signing for Everton if they decide to add another striker to the first-team squad in the summer transfer window.
