Brahimi set to leave Porto this summer

Algeria forward Yacine Brahimi is set to leave FC Porto this summer, according to Portuguese source A Bola.

Porto are reportedly willing to sell Brahimi in the summer transfer window as the club have to sell players in order to meet Financial Fair Play regulations. Brahimi has a £52million release clause in his contract, but Porto are very likely to accept an offer that is substantially less than that.

Having joined Porto in 2014, Brahimi has enjoyed successful seasons at the club and he has been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal within the past few weeks. He also scored at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, where he helped the North Africans reach the knockout stages of the tournament for the first time.

Brahimi scored 7 goals for the Portuguese side this season, who reached the last 16 of the Champions League. Everton were close to signing the 27-year-old last year, but were put off by the price tag. But with Porto now willing to sell the player, the Premier League side may well rekindle their interest. 

Currently on international duty with the Desert Foxes, Brahimi grabbed an assist for the national team in a recent friendly vs Guinea. His superb dribbling ability would be a fantastic addition to any club side around Europe.
