West Ham failed in €30m bid for Porto's Brahimi

West Ham failed in €30m bid for Porto's Brahimi West Ham reportedly made a €30 million offer to sign Yacine Brahimi during the summer transfer window. According to Portuguese outlet Record, the Porto winger was a man in demand at the end of the season. They claim that the Hammers came calling and were willing to pay as much as €30 million in order to bring him to the London Stadium. The offer was reportedly evaluated but Brahimi opted to stay with Porto following talks with Sérgio Conceição. The Hammers, who were clearly in the market for a winger, went on to sign Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko. The decision to reject the offer may come back to haunt Porto, with Brahimi now approaching the end of his contract with the club. The player is being widely tipped to leave either in January at a cut-price rate or in the summer for nothing. West Ham are still believed to be interested in the player, but Lazio, Everton and Newcastle have also been linked in recent weeks.

Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta has reportedly emerged as a target for Serie A giants Lazio.

Ahead of the January transfer window, the Italian international is said by Calciomercato to have been lined up for a return to his homeland, with Simone Inzaghi’s side the latest to be linked with a swoop.

Since his arrival at Stamford Bridge, though, he has been utilised only as a deputy option by Antonio Conte and Maurizio Sarri respectively, with Victor Moses and Cesar Azpilicueta generally preferred on the right-hand side of the defence.

Lazio ready to rival West Ham for Brahimi

Lazio ready to rival West Ham for Brahimi Lazio have joined the race to sign West Ham target Yacine Brahimi from FC Porto, according to A Bola. The Hammers have been heavily linked with a swoop for the Algerian international in recent times and their interest in the player is reiterated by the Portuguese report. However, it’s believed that West Ham will face stiff competition in their pursuit of Brahimi, with Serie A giants Lazio touted as potential suitors for the winger. A Bola indicate that Brahimi has emerged as a top target for Simone Inzaghi’s side ahead of the January transfer window, with the report claiming that they are willing to “outdo all competition” to secure his signature. The 28-year-old has long been courted by Premier League clubs, with Newcastle United also reported to be keen, but Porto have been intent on retaining his services. Nevertheless, Brahimi’s contract at Porto expires at the end of the season and it seems the race for his signature is well and truly underway.

The 26-year-old has started all four of Chelsea’s Europa League group stage matches this season but has made only one Premier League appearance from the bench.

Zappacosta will certainly be assessing his future ahead of the upcoming transfer window as first-team football continues to prove hard to come by.

Lazio preparing offer for Zappacosta.
Calcio Mercato claim Lazio are preparing to make a loan offer for Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta. The full-back has found first-team football hard to come by under Maurizio Sarri, having made just two Premier League appearances so far this season – both from the substitutes bench. Despite being an important part of the Blues’ Europa League campaign, the 26-year-old may be shipped out by Sarri in order to give a chance to a younger full-back, who may be recalled from a loan spell of his own to fill the gap. Zappacosta arrived at Chelsea prior to the 2017-18 season, signing a contract that will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2021. Arriving from Torino, the West Londoners coughed up €28 million in a base fee for the Sora-native, excluding various bonuses. The Italian national could make the move back to his home nation after a short stint in England, although it seems unlikely he’d leave on a permanent basis.
