West Ham reportedly set to place offer for 26-year-old attacker

Slaven Bilic is looking for a reliable option up front, and recent news suggests that West Ham are interested in acquiring the services of Danish international Martin Braithwaite, who currently plays for French side Toulouse.

Braithwaite came to Ligue 1 in 2013, and even though he is not the most prolific of strikers, his versatility could bolster attacking options for the Hammers.

The Sun reports that a bid of around £7.5 million is to be expected in the next few days, but offers from Marseille and Cologne will be on the table as well for Toulouse to consider.

The Dane scored 12 goals in all competitions last season for Toulouse, and he can play in many different positions up front, including the left wing and as a classical number 10.

Because of the recent flops with Simone Zaza and Gokhan Tore, Bilic has to tread lightly and his move for an experienced striker such as Braithwaite seems to be the best course of action.
