Arsenal ‘in talks to sign Yacine Brahimi for free’ after Porto exit

By Ayebare Mariam

Arsenal have begun negotiations with free-agent Yacine Brahimi, according to reports.

The 29-year-old is available on a free transfer after his contract with Porto expired on Monday and Arsenal have jumped at the chance to acquire his services.

Unai Emery’s men have a limited budget of just £45million this summer after failing to secure Champions League football for a third season running, meaning big-money signings will be hard to come by.

And according to Sky Sports, Arsenal are in talks to sign the 29-year-old winger as they look to find a way around their lack of resources in the transfer window.

However, it is understood personal terms for Brahimi are still a while away from being agreed.

Brahimi enjoyed the best goalscoring campaign of his career last season, scoring 13 times goals in 49 appearances as Porto finished second in Primeira Liga.
