According to a report from Simon Jones of the Daily Mail, Sunderland are chasing Danish striker Martin Braithwaite as a possible summer transfer target, however, the Black Cats face competition from West Ham and Crystal Palace for his signature.

As reported by Jones, the trio, as well as Championship side Hull City are all keeping tabs on the Danish international as he is yet to sign a new deal with the French side and his contract expires in the summer of 2017.

If Braithwaite fails to sign a contract extension by the summer, Toulouse could sell him for around £4million as they would not want to risk losing him on a free.

 Braithwaite, who has 12 caps for Denmark, recently admitted that he would like to make a move to England, so it’ll be interesting to see which side he does end up joining.

Sunderland are said to be in the market for a striker in the summer, with Danny Graham and Steven Fletcher’s loan moves expected to be made permanent this summer, and it looks like Braithwaite is one of the options being considered to replace the duo.
