West Ham in talks with Yacine Brahimi

Premier League side West Ham are in negotiations with FC Porto for Algerian international Yacine Brahimi, according to Portuguese media outlet O Jogo.

Porto have already sold several players to the Premier League this summer, such as Diego Dalot to Manchester United and Ricardo Pereira to Leicester City.

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 42 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.

According to the report, Porto want West Ham to meet the release clause for the player. The Hammers have already signed the likes of Felipe Anderson so far this summer in the left wing position.
