Let us take a look at five such Porto players who could move in the summer-
#1 Yacine Brahimi
Brahimi is one of the biggest stars in the Portuguese Primeira Liga at the moment and has been the subject of interest from a number of Premier League clubs in recent times. Last summer, he was heavily linked with the likes of Everton and Arsenal and it is a bit surprising to see the Algerian dazzler still plying his trade for Porto.
The 27-year-old is predominantly a winger but is also capable of plying his trade as an attacking midfielder. The former Granada man is blessed with terrific ball control and technique and is known as a technical dribbler. Porto managed to keep hold onto him last summer but it won’ be easy for them to keep the Algerian star at Estádio do Dragão for much long.
