Still contracted to Middlesbrough, Martin Braithwaite isn’t really sure what his future is made of.

Sent on loan to Leganes for the second half of the 2018-19 campaign, the Denmark international was very critical of Tony Pulis’ style of football while out there, admitting he couldn’t see himself returning to the Riverside for good.

However, things have changed since then, as Jonathan Woodgate is now in charge, meaning a new philosophy could be implemented.

Should Braithwaite still not fancy remaining in the north of England under the former Real Madrid defender, then other opportunities are reportedly opening up for him elsewhere.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Sassuolo in Italy have reached out and made contact with Braithwaite’s intermediaries about a possible transfer to Serie A.

These talks opened ‘some time ago’, with the Dane’s name said to be ‘hot’ in the Modena region, which could ‘become something more’ in the next few weeks.

In need of a striker, it appears Sassuolo have turned their attention to the 28-year-old, who scored four goals and picked up seven assists in 19 La Liga games last season, as well as finding the back of the net once in two Copa del Rey matches.
