Breaking The Bank For Brahimi
Liverpool are ‘very close’ to smashing their transfer record according to reports in Portugal, which claim that Porto midfielder Yacine Brahimi is on the verge of a move to Reds for a huge sum of around £45m.
The 26-year-old Paris-born Algeria international has netted 21 times for the Portuguese giants over the last two seasons, and A Bola now claim that he will complete a switch to Jurgen Klopp’s Reds in the coming days.
