FC Porto have reportedly put a price tag of £26million on the head of Manchester United, Arsenal and West Ham target Yacine Brahimi.

The Portuguese giants are willing to accept €30million for the winger as they look to meet Financial Fair Play regulations, according to O Jogo.

The Algeria international was interesting Everton last season and they had a £33.6million bid to sign Brahimi on deadline day turned down.

Now though the 27-year-old is set to go for less than that with Porto desperate to get onside with FIFA regulations.

United, Arsenal and West Ham are believed to be tracking Brahimi, who scored seven goals and earned four assists this season.

The skillful left footer has two years remaining on his Porto deal, but his club are ready to cash in on the player, who is represented by English agents Stellar Football.

The player does have a £52million release clause in his deal at Porto, but that is unlikely to be met, while he is believed to be part owned by Doyen Sports, which could complicate any prospective deal.
