Arsenal and Manchester United are reportedly interested in Porto winger, Yacine Brahimi.
Back in the summer, Yacine Brahimi was linked with Arsenal, PSG, Chelsea and Everton. However, just as quickly as the rumours linking us with the Porto winger were born, they died and no one’s heard much since.
The Sun are claiming that Arsenal and Manchester United are among 11 – yes 11 – clubs currently interested in the 26-year-old, who’s contracted with Porto until 2019. And while his stats over the last couple of seasons overall aren’t so bad (he scored seven league goals last term), this year he’s only scored twice in ALL competitions.
Not so good for a team like Arsenal who love goalscoring wingers.
Oh yeah, and his release clause is apparently £50.5m.
Considering the list of clubs reportedly interested in Brahimi is about a mile long and, according to O Jogo, [via the Sun], includes West Ham, Monaco, Marseille, AC Milan, Juventus, Napoli, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla, you’ll have to forgive my sceptism over this rumour.
