On Thursday, we carried a report from Portuguese newspaper A Bola which covered Wolverhampton Wanderers’ interest in signing FC Porto winger Yacine Brahimi.
The Algerian international’s contract with his current employers runs down in 2019 and there’s a €60m release clause in his contract. Porto are willing to sanction his sale for €30m as he has one year left.
France Football now claims Brahimi is attracting interest from Serie A. AS Roma and Inter Milan are believed to be interested in the player, while he is still attracting interest from the Premier League.
The report mentions Brahimi came close to joining Everton two seasons ago. Mentioning Wolves’ interest in the winger, France Football talks about how Nuno Espírito Santo’s side are ‘a fan’ of the 28-year-old.
“Unless there are interesting offers” from the newly promoted Premier League club, Brahimi’s future now lies in Italy.
Inter “could advance very soon” for the player and the Nerazzurri are willing to pay a fee between €25m and €30m to Porto to secure the services of their wide-man.
A Bola’s initial claims on Wolves weren’t very convincing, claiming there’d been reports in England, which don’t appear to exist. If France Football’s claim is based on that then it isn’t very convincing either.
