Tottenham, Everton and West Ham battle it out for £15.3million-rated Yacine Brahimi

According to the O Jogo (via HITC), Tottenham, Everton and West Ham are all chasing highly-rated Porto winger Yacine Brahimi.

What’s the Story?

In Wednesday’s edition of O Jogo, it was confirmed that Tottenham, Everton and West Ham were all interested in the possibility of signing Yacine Brahimi from Porto. The Algerian, who is valued at £15.3million by Transfermarkt, has thrown himself into the European spotlight after a number of match winning performances in Liga NOS last season.

It is thought that all three interested Premier League clubs will be willing to make a bid for the Porto star, who will turn 28 next February.

How good was Brahimi last season?

Consistent. The Algerian featured 27 times in all competitions for Porto and contributed with seven goals and three assists. Used predominantly on the left, the 27-year-old particularly impressed with his dribbling skills, along with his ability to keep hold of the ball and dance around tackles.

Brahimi was one of Porto’s most consistent players last season and has certainly left a lasting impression on many a watching scout.

Where will Brahimi end up next season?

A tough call. While Tottenham are yet to sign anyone during this transfer window, a player like Brahimi may find his time limited at Wembley and frustration could set in.

Everton have been spending big this summer already and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they invested further. However, other signings are clearly further ahead of Brahimi in the Toffees most wanted list.

However, West Ham are desperate to invest in some talent and would love to unearth a creative playmaker who can actually make a real difference in the league. London Stadium therefore, seems the Algerian’s most likely destination.
