FC Porto are making desperate efforts to tie West Ham target Yacine Brahimi down to a new contract, according to reports. 

The Hammers have long been linked with a move to sign the Algerian international, whose deal with the Portuguese giants comes to an end this summer. 

This means that Brahimi will be allowed to move away from Porto on a free transfer, with West Ham among the clubs who have established an interest in signing him.

However, the Liga NOS side are believed to be pushing to secure their key man’s future at the club. According to Correio de Manha, as cited by Calciomercato, Porto have offered him a lucrative new deal.

The report states that Brahimi has been offered a contract worth €2 million per season with additional bonuses should he put pen to paper on an extended stay at Estadio do Dragao. 

West Ham are stocked with creative options, but the prospect of signing the 29-year-old on a free transfer could prove lucrative this summer.
