Europa League finalists Arsenal have reportedly entered talks with Algerian international attacker Yacine Brahimi with the view to signing him this summer.

According to Sky Sports, the Gunners want to sign Brahimi on a free transfer during this summer’s transfer window.

Yacine Brahimi is a free agent at the moment after his contract with Portuguese Super League giants FC Porto at the end of last month.

His FC Porto contract ended on Sunday amidst the transfer rumours linking him with a move to clubs like Arsenal, Manchester United, West Ham United and many more.

The 29-year-old joined FC Porto in 2014 shortly after his impressive form for the Algerian national team at the FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil.

He went on to score 53 goals in 209 appearances for FC Porto in all competitions during his five-year stay at the Estadio Dragao.

The Algerian winger could join Arsenal this summer though he seems to be in no rush to make a decision on his new club.

Yacine Brahimi is presently with the Algerian national team at the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt.

Arsenal want to sign at least a winger this summer and Yacine Brahimi could be the man for that particular job at the Emirates Stadium.
