The Mexican player will leave Porto in June albeit he is a free agent and could be traded out in the January transfer window as well. Roma and Milan interested in him.
Roma must cope with the recent bad news about their captain Daniele De Rossi. The legendary midfielder of the giallorossi is still injured and he may have to undergo a surgery if he definitively wants to solve his knee issue.
Di Francesco needs extra players in midfield and in cooperation with Monchi they are trying to find the right profile for the Roma tactical approach.
Although the Lupi are chasing Boca Juniors’ Wilmar Barrios, the other hot name linked to the club of Trigoria is Herrera.
The Mexican is currently playing with Porto but his contract is set to expire on June 30, 2019. The expert midfielder is not willing to extend his adventure in Portugal but he wants to move to another top European side.
As reported by the Italian outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma and Milan are seriously interested in the player. Inter were chasing Herrera as well but apparently the neroazzurri are not thinking about him anymore.
Reportedly, Milan would love to finalize this deal now but Porto are not willing to let him go at this time. Herrera could, therefore, move to Italy next summer.
