Arsene Wenger is looking to add strength and depth to his Arsenal squad this summer, with his eyes set firmly on Yacine Brahimi, according to reports.
Brahimi has attracted attention from all around Europe due to his impressive performances this season both in Europe and domestically. Bayern Munich and AC Milan are thought to be ready to compete with Arsenal for the signature of the Algerian, who is still under contract until 2019.
His current club, FC Porto, are hoping that there will be a bidding war sparked for their wanted man, although they would be willing to sell below the asking price if it was to come down to it, according to talkSPORT.
The Gunners are believed to be looking to add the 25-year-old to their line-up as they attempt to offload deadweight they currently have on the books, with the likes of Lukas Podolski, Joel Campbell and Yaya Sanogo potentially heading for The Emirates exit this summer.
Brahimi joined Porto from Granada last year for a fee of just over £5 million, which has turned out to be an absolute bargain. As per his release clause he could potentially be moved on this year for around the £40million mark, an that would leave Porto with a healthy profit indeed.
Brahimi, who can play as a wide man or just behind the main striker, has been in inspired form for the Primeira Liga runners up this season grabbing 13 goals in 41 appearances. There can be little doubt Arsene Wenger would be hoping he could have a similar impact in England.
