Report: West Ham interest in £35m winger


PortoWest Ham has again been linked with Porto star Yacine Brahimi ahead of the summer transfer window with reports that Porto will accept offers of around €40m (£35m) for their winger Yacine Brahimi this summer.

Portuguese website Abola says the Algerian has attracted interest from the likes of Crystal Palace and Everton in the past and more recently Inter, AC Milan and Arsenal in addition to the Hammers after impressing in Portugal since moving there in 2014.

Brahimi has scored five goals in 19 league appearances for Porto this term, as the Dragao aim for a first Portuguese title since 2013.

The 27-year-old has made 31 appearances for Algeria and represented his country at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. West Ham has previously scouted Brahimi according to multiple reports which gives a little more credence to the report.

    Think they are getting him mixed up with the freebie Rachid Ghezzal we won’t be paying £35m for a winger, anyone else think we will sign him ? He can play on the left which is a slight bonus but not sure he is worth the money quoted.
