Arsenal are amongst a horde of clubs around Europe keeping tabs on Porto midfielder Yacine Brahimi.

According to Portuguese publication A Bola, as reported by, the 26-year-old Algerian has supposedly attracted interest from Manchester City, Juventus, Napoli, AC Milan, Monaco, Marseille, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and West Ham due to his performances for Porto this season.

Brahimi, who is naturally a left midfielder but can also play higher up the flank or in centre midfielder, has made 12 total appearances for the Portuguese club so far this season, scoring two goals and creating one along the way.

The Algeria international signed from La Liga side Granada in summer 2014 and still has two-and-a-half years left to run on his existing contract, so any bid for the midfielder would have to be a high one from potential suitors if they are to acquire his services.

Arsenal have been linked with a number of players ahead of the upcoming January transfer window but it remains to be seen whether they will strengthen for the second-half of the season.
