Everton close to club record £35m deal for Porto forward Yacine Brahimi

Everton are close to agreeing a club record deal to sign Yacine Brahimi from FC Porto, with the Algeria forward expected on Merseyside on Wednesday to complete a medical.

Despite signing Yannick Bolasie for an initial £25m from Crystal Palace, Ronald Koeman is still searching for more attacking reinforcements and has targeted Brahimi and the Napoli striker Manolo Gabbiadini.

But while progress in the move for Gabbiadini has so far stalled, negotiations with Porto for the 26-year-old are ongoing, with Everton offering a deal that could be worth up to £35m. The Portuguese club has yet to accept that, although it is expected an agreement will be reached and Brahimi will move to Goodison Park.
