Algerians in Europe

West Ham linked with £26m move for Brahimi

Premier League side West Ham have been linked with a move for Algerian winger Yacine Brahimi, according to Portuguese media outlet A Bola.

But there will be strong competition for the 28-year-old, with Wolves and Roma also keeping tabs on the man who has one year left on his current FC Porto contract.

The Hammers are keen on Brahimi, who is available for just £26m which is an absolute bargain. Porto have already sold several players to the Premier League this summer, such as Dalot to Manchester United and Pereira to Leicester.

Brahimi has just enjoyed winning his first trophy in Portugal, lifting the Liga NOS league title. 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. Porto may also prefer to let him go this window, rather than for free next year.

He also has 11 goals in 40 appearances for the Algerian national team, and would be a fantastic addition to the West Ham squad. However, this would mean giving up the Champions League football that he just helped Porto qualify for.
