In the past few days, the Italian press has been publishing many stories about AC Milan’s interest in Porto winger Yacine Brahimi.
As the player is becoming a free agent next summer, the Rossoneri are trying to get ahead of competition and sign him for free as soon as possible.
Another club who have been getting a mention in these stories is Watford, who, according to some, would be the biggest threat to Milan in the race.
Portuguese newspaper O Jogo covers it today, crediting most of the info to Italian outlet Calcio Mercato, but also brings a little bit of their own take on the situation.
O Jogo claims that despite the many rumours about Brahimi’s future, he’s not very interested in working on a transfer out of Porto at the moment.
The player is said to be focused on helping the Dragons win another Portuguese title, and only then will sit and decide what to do in the future.
That’s with Inter, Watford or anyone else. The Italian club won’t be able to get the rushed deal they hoped for.
With nine goals and six assists in 31 games this season, Brahimi is a crucial player for Porto, who will certainly feel the blow of losing him on a free transfer.
That is, in case he doesn’t end up signing an extension with the club.
