This Newcastle Target Available For Only £5M In January

The Mirror are reporting that Everton are now monitoring Porto midfielder, Yacine Brahimi.

Brahimi is out of contract in the summer and Newcastle have been linked with the player many times in the past.

He is out of contract in June and Porto could try to sell him in January, so they get a transfer fee of him before he becomes a free agent.

Newcastle were reported at the game on Monday night to watch the Algerian International in action during Porto’s 3-1 victory over Nacional on Monday night.

28-year-old Porto winger Yacine Brahimi

Aaron Stokes is a sports journalist for the Star, and he has tweeted that Newcastle are still interested in the Porto winger.

Brahimi scored twice during the game, and he would have impressed several club scouts at the game.

He moved to Porto in the summer of 2014 from Granada, and he was born in Paris and played for all the French youth sides through the U21 level (8 appearances – one goal).

He is of Algerian descent and has played 39 times for the Algerian National side with 11 goals.

Brahimi plays as an attacking midfielder and a winger and is a technically gifted player.

Since he’s been at Porto, he’s played 191 times with 48 goals and 40 assists.

Newcastle have been interested in the 28-year-old since 2012 according to our records, and we were also linked with him last January.

It seems like £5M could get him this month if he would agree to join Newcastle.

And it was a pity the Newcastle U21 team were beaten 4-0 at Sunderland last night in the Checkatrade trophy with the score 0-0 at half time.

4-0 was a harsh scoreline for the youngsters, but they have done really well this season to reach the last 16 of the competition.

What do you think?

    It doesn’t look like anyone is coming in, there’s an asset strip on the way.

    Don’t worry we still have £20 million from the summer. Where did that go? It’s here somewhere.

    Top players won’t come to Newcastle regardless off their contract situations etc and Brahimi is a top player. Remember Allesane Plea in the Summer choosing Monchengladbach over us because he wasn’t convinced by our project etc, well our project is a lot worse now than it was in the summer so good look to us signing anyone with abit of pedigree and a reputation amongst the bigger clubs.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if we make another last ditch attempt on deadline day at signing that big Danish donkey we was linked with last winter Jorgensen (possibly the worst striker I’ve seen and I’ve seen Joselu).

    Shefki Kuqi anyone??? Heard Titus Bramble would play for us in exchange for a couple of size XXL Slazenger coats, anyone got his number
