Loads of West Ham fans have been reacting to the links to Yacine Brahimi, as the Hammers plot a huge raid of Portuguese champions Porto.
According to Sky Sports (via West Ham Central), a deal is “close” for the Hammers to sign Brahimi.
The tricky Algerian winger is well known for his dazzling skill and exceptional crossing, and he looks like he could be the final piece of Pellegrini’s puzzle.
This report comes shortly after ESPN claimed that the Hammers are working on deals for Brahimi, Moussa Marega and also Benfica sensation Joao Felix.
It’s clear Pellegrini and director of football Mario Husillos have a keen eye on the Portuguese market, but fans are split on this one.
On one hand, the £23.4m-rated winger would bring an extra dose of pace, trickery and creativity to the Hammers’ attack.
However, fans are more concerned with getting a defensive midfielder after Cheikhou Kouyate left for Crystal Palace, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Maybe cos he's the best out of the 3

I’d love to sign him, but we’ve signed two wingers already and we should focus on a position, defensive midfield, that we need
