Le Havre move for Jonatan Braut Brunes, cousin of Erling Haaland

As reported by Foot Mercato, newly-promoted Ligue 1 side Le Havre are targeting the signing of Jonatan Braut Brunes, who happens to be the cousin of Manchester City striker Erling Haaland.

Also a Norwegian striker, the 6’2 23-year-old Brunes is currently playing for Stromsgodset in Norway, who currently sit in midtable of the Eliteserien, Norway’s top flight. Despite his club’s middling form, Brunes has contributed 11 goals and three assists over 20 games in all competitions this season.

However, HAC, who are looking to strengthen their attack after winning Ligue 2 last season despite their top scorers only managing six goals, face competition from Belgian clubs for the player despite offering Brunes a four-year deal. Brunes’ current contract in Norway runs until 2025 and the player is valued at €600k by Transfermarkt. 

Having made little impact at Lillestrom in the top flight during the 2021 season, Brunes scored 12 in 15 games for IK Start in the second tier last term, which caught the attention of Stromsgodset during the winter.
