New signing Braithwaite named in Barcelona squad for Eibar test

Barcelona head coach Quique Setién has included club's new signing Martin Braithwaite in the squad that will take on Eibar at the Nou Camp on Saturday. 

Barcelona completed the emergency signing of Braithwaite from Leganes after activating his €18 million release clause. Injuries to Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez forced the Catalans to obtain special permission from LaLiga to make an emergency signing outside the transfer window with the forward where he signed a contract with the Spanish giants until June 2024.

Ansu Fati and Barca B's Sergio Akieme have also been included in the squad.
