Two Portuguese newspapers have reaffirmed West Ham’s interest in exit-bound winger Yacine Brahimi, Sport Witness reports.
Brahimi is out of contract this summer and he seems to have played his final home game for FC Porto. West Ham could sign him on a free transfer this summer.
O Jogo: Yacine Brahimi bids farewell
According to O Jogo (via Sport Witness), Brahimi took his family to say goodbye at the Estadio de Dragao after his final game. Even though there were no fans left in the ground, Brahimi’s family took pictures as they accept he is leaving.
Brahimi has one more game in the cup final. But his departure is ‘inevitable’. This report claims Brahimi is open to a Premier League project or a return to France. West Ham and Marseille can offer him those respective career paths.
A Bola: West Ham among clubs keen on Yacine Brahimi
According to A Bola (via Sport Witness), several clubs want Brahimi. West Ham’s interest is noted, alongside Spanish side Real Betis and Turkish club Fenerbahce.
It appears that Brahimi will not be short of options during this transfer window. But after pursuing the Algeria international last summer (Sky Sports News), West Ham could finally land their man.
The 29-year-old is leaving Porto after five years, over 200 appearances, 54 goals and 43 appearances. Could West Ham be his next destination?
