Tottenham and Everton have been dealt a blow in the pursuit of Algeria's World Cup star, Yacine Brahimi. According to TalkSPORT, the 24-year-old is on the verge of agreeing a deal to join Porto, with talks now at an advanced stage.

Price tag

Granada have reportedly put a £6million price tag on the attacking midfielder, but Porto are the only club willing to match their valuation – effectively pricing the Premier League clubs out of the race for the player.

Brahimi netted three times last season for the La Liga club, helping them to a 15th place finish. However, it was his performances for Algeria that really attracted the attention of some of the big clubs. Brahimi was a stand-out player for his home nation, who reached the knock-out stages of a World Cup for the first time in their history.

It took Germany 120 minutes to finally knock-out the Algerians in the round-of-16, with late goals coming from Andre Schurrle and Mesut Ozil, before Abdelmoumene Djhabou clawed one back.

A prolonged stay at Granada is out of the question, as the player has already spoken publicly about a move away from the club upon returning from Brazil, and a switch to Porto now looks to be the most likely outcome.

The player said: “I learned from my time at Rennes and in Spain and in the last two years I have grown and matured.

“My goal is to go to a more upscale club.”
