West Ham United have ended their pursuit of Porto winger Yacine Brahimi after failing to agree personal terms with the Algeria international, according to Sky sources.
The Hammers had agreed a fee with the Portuguese side for Brahimi, but the 28-year-old’s move to the London Stadium will now not take place.
However, Brahimi’s Porto team-mate Moussa Marega could still be making the move to West Ham.
The Premier League side are still in talks with Porto over a deal for the Mali forward, say Sky sources, but the two clubs remain apart in their valuations.
West Ham are also still in talks with Porto’s rivals Benfica over a move for 18-year-old forward Joao Felix, Sky sources understand.
A deal is believed to be close for Felix – who has never played for Benfica’s first team – with both clubs keen to complete the move.
