Arsenal are in talks to sign Yacine Brahimi from FC Porto, according to Sky Sports.

Brahimi’s professional career started back in 2009/10 in France, with Ligue 2 side Clermont. After that, he spent two seasons each with Rennes in Ligue 1 and Granada in the Spanish La Liga, before joining Porto in 2014. In five years with the current Portuguese vice-champions, he made 209 appearances and scored 53 goals – a decent number. His contract there has expired with the month of June this year, and at the age of 29, he is now available to sign for a club of his choice as a fee agent. He is highly capable of playing out wide as a winger and centrally as an attacking midfielder, and he also netted 11 goals in 45 games as an Algeria international.

According to reports over the weekend, Arsenal were interested in signing Porto’s £40million rated Algerian international playmaker Yacine Brahimi. The Daily Express are now reporting that Everton have made a bid for the 26-year-old star.

Should Arsenal fight it out with the newly loaded Toffees, or should they concentrate on bringing in a centre-back, say Shkodran Mustafi?

Brahimi is another attacking midfielder

We all know that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger loves an attacking midfielder, almost to the point of abandoning the idea of bringing in a striker or a centre-back. Reports would suggest that Wenger is close to signing a centre-back, sensible right.

Yesterday it was Porto striker Jackson Martinez linked with a move to the Emirates. Today it is highly-rated Porto attacking midfielder Yacine Brahimi who is supposedly attracting admiring glances from north London.

Talksport is claiming that the Gunners are interested in signing the Algerian international, but will have to pay a fee of around £40million to sign him.


Brahimi is believed to be a player in-demand this summer, with the likes of Bayern Munich and AC Milan linked with making a move for the star. Porto will be encouraging rumours as it looks like they are willing to part with the midfield, but only for a massive fee.
