Barcelona are reportedly on the verge of completing a deal for Leganes forward Martin Braithwaite.
Having been granted the green light to sign a replacement for the injured duo Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez, the Catalan giants must add to their squad in the coming days.
Despite being linked with many players, Cadena Cope suggests that the Spanish champions are ready to secure the signature of Martin Braithwaite from Leganes.

The report adds that Barca are willing to meet the €20m release clause of the 28-year-old attacker, who has previously endured a torrid season at Middlesbrough in the Premier League.
The Denmark international has scored eight goals and provided two assists from 25 appearances in La Liga and the Copa del Rey.
