Future of Brahimi not yet resolved; a dream move to England could be on the cards

Future of Brahimi not yet resolved; a dream move to England could be on the cards

Algerian winger Yacine Brahimi will be leaving Porto for free this summer when his contract expires, but his destination remains unclear.

Having had a proposal from Fenerbahce, the Algerian international turned down the offer, hoping for a more enticing move to one of the bigger leagues in the continent.

Real Betis, the club of Portugal international William Carvalho, is another side who have shown interest in the long-serving Porto player, although Brahimi is likely to be holding out for an offer from an English club.

One such side that is believed to be interested in the 29-year old is Everton, who remain a highly plausible destination for Brahimi.

However, set to represent Algeria at the African Cup of Nations, nothing is expected to be confirmed until the tournament begins, with Brahimi likely to use the platform of the continental competition to show his capabilities and entice other clubs to approach him.

Algeria kick off their campaign on 23rd June, when they take on Kenya in host country Egypt. The other sides in their group are Senegal and Tanzania.
