– Yacine Brahimi has been linked with a move to join Premier League side Arsenal
– The winger recently left Portuguese club FC Porto after a five-year stay
– Arsenal are said to have had discussions with him over a move to the Emirates stadium
Algeria international Yacine Brahimi is reportedly on the verge of joining Premier League side Arsenal after the expiration of his contract at FC Porto.
The North London club are said to be in talks with the 29-year-old winger over a possible move to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
Brahimi left FC Porto after spending five years at the club thereby becoming a free agent.
And according to the report on Sky Sports, Arsenal have negotiated with Brahimi and the midfielder could soon join the Premier League club.
Unai Emery is keen to sign a winger to his ranks ahead of the new season with Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha believed to be Arsenal’s top transfer target.
Last season, Arsenal failed to finish among the top four teams and also failed to win any title as they lost 2018/19 Europa League final against Chelsea.
The Gunners now want to bolster their squad for next season so that they will be able to fight for titles.
Earlier, TUKO.co.ke had reported how Arsenal will reportedly demand £56m for the transfer of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang which was what they paid to sign the striker from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018.
The club are said to be ready to offload the prolific striker this summer to fund new signings, with the 30-year-old a rumored target for the Red Devils after his impressive form in front of goal last season.
