Brahimi caught the eye of some of the top clubs in Europe after displaying some impressive form in this seasons Champions League campaign with Porto, scoring five goals, including a hat-trick against BATE Borisov.
The Algerian winger has been in scintillating form since signing for the Portuguese champions last summer and has netted 11 goals in 29 appearances this season.
Portuguese reports have claimed Arsene Wenger has been monitoring the 25-year-old attacker and add that the Gunners are keen to beat their Premier League rivals to secure his services.
This has further fuelled speculation that Theo Walcott’s time as an Arsenal player is drawing to a close.
Arsene Wenger is reported to be looking to bolster his forward line over the summer to ensure they can mount a stronger title challenge next season.
The Gunners are currently second in the Premier League with seven games to go and Wenger seems to be on the money with his transfers after criticism in recent years that he was unwilling to sign top players.
Do you think Arsene Wenger will splash the cash on Yacine Brahimi this summer? Is he what Arsenal need?
