Wolves want Algerian winger Yacine Brahimi

Wolves are keen on signing Algerian winger Yacine Brahimi this summer, according to Portuguese media outlet A Bola. Having just won promotion to the Premier League in England, manager Nuno Santo is keen on strengthening his squad ahead of the new season.


Santo has managed the 28-year-old before, when he was in charge of FC Porto. Brahimi has also been linked with Newcastle, Everton and Italian side Roma in the past few weeks.

Brahimi has just enjoyed winning his first trophy in Portugal, lifting the Liga NOS league title. He has a £52m release clause in his contract that can be activated, but the clubs linked are not willing to pay that much.

The left winger is renowned for his dribbling ability and quick feet, and he scored 12 goals in all competitions during the 2017/18 campaign.

Joining from Granada in summer 2014, the Algerian international has enjoyed a few years now in Portugal and may seek a new challenge for next season.

He also has 11 goals in 39 appearances for the Algerian national team, and would be a fantastic addition to the already talented Wolverhampton Wanderers squad. However, this would mean giving up the Champions League football that he just helped Porto qualify for.
