Barcelona have announced the signing of Danish striker Martin Braithwaite from Leganes for €18 million (£15m/$19m), reports Goal.

Braithwaite has committed to a four-and-a-half year deal with the Spanish champions, which includes a buy-out clause of €300m (£252m/$324m). The Blaugrana triggered the release clause in Braithwaite’s contract with Leganes on Thursday morning, and he will be officially presented at Camp Nou later in the day.

The Blaugrana have succeeded in adding an extra striker to their ranks after losing Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez due to long-term injuries
