Roma’s Hands on Porto’s Herrera

Monchi | AS Roma

The giallorossi are still chasing the Mexican midfielder. Herrera has not renewed his contract with Porto and wants to leave. Roma made steps toward pursuing the player.

Roma are trying to reshape their midfield line. Monchi is not happy with the performance of a few players and Daniele De Rossi is now a 35-year-old. Probably, the captain of the Lupi will end his career in the Italian capital right at the end of the season. The giallorossi are, therefore, chasing new players to replace him.

Hector Herrera is a great opportunity in the current market. His contract is set to expire on June 30, 2019. The player is reportedly ready for a new adventure after having played 209 matches with the legendary Portuguese side. He scored 29 goals and 33 assists at Porto so far.

Roma are chasing Barcelona‘s Rafinha as well. The Brazilian midfielder could join the giallorossi in January. An intermediary who brought the player to Inter last season seemed to be confident in a possible move of the talented player.

Herrera, instead, would be a summer target for Roma. Monchi knows that the Mexican player is not going to move in January. Apparently, the Roma Sporting Director will wait a few more months albeit the deal could be finalized shortly.

According to the Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb, the giallorossi have proposed a four-year contract to the 28-year-old from Tijuana (Mexico). Reportedly, Juventus are interested in the player as well but the Lupi are confident at this time.
