Yacine Brahimi – FC Porto
Ronald Koeman’s tactical approach can see a significant importance on flexibility and a player’s ability to adapt to what the opposition is giving them. In this regard, another move at Porto’s Yacine Brahimi could see the see the signing of Everton’s attacking catalyst.
The Algerian international was a target of Everton and several other clubs this past summer, but ultimately stayed in Portugal. Since arriving at Porto in July of 2014, Brahimi has been electric at the top of the Dragoes line-up and has scored over 20 goals across all competitions thus far.
The 27-year-old has made an impact on the international stage as well. Along with team-mates Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani, Brahimi has helped to produce strong recent results for Algeria.
Possessing excellent vision, control and pace, Brahimi is able to play in a variety of positions. Pushed out wide, played centrally or even higher in the attack, he is able to frustrate defences with his creativity.
Combining with the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Yannick Bolasie, Ronald Koeman could see the Everton attack boosted in a significant way with the summer signing of Yacine Brahimi.
