West Ham United have had a €10 million (£8.5 million) offer for Toulouse attacker Martin Braithwaite rejected, according to French media outlet RMC Sport.

The Hammers were linked with the versatile Denmark international over the summer, but a deal bringing the forward to the Premier League did not materialise.

With Simone Zaza and Jonathan Calleri potentially leaving the London Stadium in the January transfer window after failing to establish themselves in England, West Ham are expected to move for attacking reinforcements.

Braithwaite has impressed over a number of seasons with Toulouse and has netted seven goals in 16 Ligue 1 games so far this term for the modest French side.

However, if the latest report is to be believed, Slaven Bilic’s men will need to up their offer for the Scandinavian star if he is to be added to the Irons squad before the end of next month.

Braithwaite’s physical attributes mean he can play as a striker or on the wing.
