The Hornets are leading the charge to sign the 28-year-old on a free transfer from Portuguese champions FC Porto at the end of the season, which is when his contract expires.

Other clubs that have shown interest include Arsenal and Inter Milan. Brahimi helped Porto win the Liga NOS title last campaign, as well as the Portuguese Super Cup in the summer. Inter reportedly have other targets that are a priority.

Brahimi is widely regarded as the best player in the Portuguese League, and he has helped Porto reach the top of the league table once again this current campaign. They are also in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.

His tricky and dazzling dribbling skills always make him an exciting left winger to watch. The Algerian international has been at the Dragao since signing from Granada in 2014 after impressing at the World Cup in Brazil.

Watford have had Algerian footballers in the past, such as central defender Essaid Belkalem, strong midfielder Adlene Guedioura and powerful winger Hameur Bouazza. Follow all the Algerian football transfer news in English with DZ Football.
