Wolverhampton Wanderers have added FC Porto winger Yacine Brahimi to their wishlist this summer, according to reports coming out of Portugal.

A Bola (via HITC) reports that Wolves will battle it out with Everton and Newcastle for Brahimi, who has a release clause of £52.7 million in his contract.

The Algerian international has also received plenty of interest from Italy, with Champions League Semi Finalists Roma said to be amongst the clubs interested in signing him.

The 28-year-old may have a large release clause, but he has just a year left on his contract, meaning that the Portuguese club may struggle to receive a fee of that amount, but they will certainly be expecting to make a profit, having signed Brahimi for just £5 million.

He joined the club from Spanish top flight side Granada back in 2014, and has been in a regular in the Porto team ever since.

He has featured over 100 times for the Portuguese giants, and has been a regular in European competitions for them. He played in both legs of this season’s matches with Liverpool in the Champions League.

His experience at club level could prove invaluable to Wolverhampton Wanderers as they prepare for life back in the top flight, but he is also an experienced player at international level.

He had represented France at youth level, but decided to switch allegiances in 2013, choosing to play for Algeria instead. He has represented the North African country 39 times since, scoring 11 goals, including one in the group stages of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
