Algerian international Yacine Brahimi has been on red hot form this season. The talented forward has been involved in 21 goals in 30 games during his debut campaign for Porto.

After arriving from Granada in the summer, Brahimi has been hitting the headlines for his pace, dribbling ability, and, as we saw against Basel, his set pieces.

The 25-year-old has been one of the stand out players in Europe this season. In the Champions League especially, his goals and assists have been vital in Porto reaching the last eight of the competition.

Will his performances attract transfer interest?

There is no doubt that more prominent clubs than Porto will be taking note of his form. Brahimi can play on either wing and has been an more than capable replacement for injured playmaker Juan Quintero.

Brahimi's most influential performances seem to be coming in off the left hand side of the front three and running at the opposition defence, and he should be a player in the crosshairs of Europe's elite.

He is clearly a very talented player and still has his peak years ahead of him. A move to a so called 'big club' is still very much on the cards for Brahimi, who a enjoyed a very impressive World Cup.

Who is Porto FC's most important player?

For many years, the main man in the Porto side has always been their striker. Right now, Colombian Jackson Martinez is just that. The 28-year-old has attracted interest from clubs all over Europe. Before Martinez, his compatriot and current Manchester United forward Radamel Falcao led the line for the Portuguese giants.

Now though, the man making all the headlines in the Primera Liga is not a South American. However, like Falcao, Martinez and Hulk before him, Yacine Brahimi is now one of the most exciting players in Portugal.

TransferMarket currently value Brahimi around £14 million, half of Martinez's estimated value. Based on the Algerian's performances however, his long-term value to any potential suitors could be much greater that that of the Porto centre-forward.
