West Ham could and should be doing a lot better than the 30-year-old journeyman striker.

Martin Braithwaite doesn’t want to join West Ham

That’s according to Mundo Deportivo (print edition, July 31st, page 18).

Braithwaite earns around £100k-a-week at the Camp Nou according to Salary Sport.

The Barca forward is nowhere near clinical enough.

He has only 93 goals in 401 games to his name (Transfermarkt)! West Ham need to sign a proven goalscorer this summer.

Braithwaite certainly isn’t that.
