Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Brahimi would have given West Ham United boss Pellegrini a selection headache

West Ham United have called time on their pursuit of Yacine Brahimi after the Porto winger failed to agree personal terms, according to Sky Sports.

What’s the word?

The Hammers have already brought in eight new faces since Manuel Pellegrini took over as manager.

The Chilean, who won the Premier League title while in charge of Manchester City, has strengthened areas of the pitch across the board.

With three days left to go before the window slams shut, West Ham continue to be linked to more new players, but it seems that one individual has been struck from the list.

Sky Sports reports that the East London outfit have walked away from a deal to sign Brahimi from Porto.

It is believed that an agreement could not be reached with regards to personal terms and now West Ham are looking at other targets.

Is this a big miss?

The 28-year-old, who is valued at £23.4m by Transfermarkt, certainly has showcased his talent down the wing in Portugal.

Brahimi is strongest on the left as he can play in the middle or the final third in a more attacking role.

The Algerian is also capable of playing more centrally, but he has been more effective out wide.

West Ham could have benefitted from having Brahimi in the team, but the club have already acquired attacking stars in the form of Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko.

There is a danger of the Hammers recruiting too many players and Pellegrini being flooded with choice, which would cause a headache or two.
