Chelsea close to completing move for Yacine Brahimi


Chelsea are closing in on the signing of Porto winger Yacine Brahimi.

The winger was believed to be a target for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, but the Blues have moved quickly to beat their Premier League rivals.

Brahimi contributed with more than 20 goals plus assists last season and managed to impress in the Champions League.

According to latest reports, Chelsea are in the final stages of negotiations for the Porto winger and a deal should be completed soon. Initially Porto wanted to sell him for a sum of 30 million Euros, but due to FFP pressure, they are now looking to sell him for half the price.

Chelsea are in desperate need of another winger and signing Brahimi would be a very wise move. The Porto star is a very talented and is physically ready to cope with the demands of the Premier League. If Chelsea do manage to pull it off, he certainly has the talent to justify his 15 million Euros fee.
