Tottenham are firmly in the running for Porto midfielder Hector Herrera, according to the Italian press.
Porto captain Herrera, 28, is out of contract in the summer, and has attracted the attention of several European clubs with no signs that he will pen a new deal.
Late last year Arsenal were understood to be among the leading contenders for his signature, while O Jogo speculated that Spanish giants Real Madrid had joined the race for the Mexico international.
Now though, according to Il Corriere dello Sport AC Milan are thinking about the Mexico winger as a reinforcement for Rino Gattuso’s team, while Inter and Tottenham are also both in the running.
Sport Mediaset report that Milan have entered talks with the player’s agent Gabriel Moraes and are looking to reach an agreement over a deal.
Nothing has been hammered out though for the player, who has made 35 appearances so far this season in all competitions for the Portuguese side, and almighty summer scramble is likely to ensue for the player, who will be available on a free transfer.
Spurs’ London rivals Arsenal are looking for a replacement for Aaron Ramsey and with money tight at The Emirates Herrera is understood to be on their radar.
The Mexico star has racked up over 200 appearances for the Portuguese heavyweights, as well as 70 international caps and has ample Champions League experience.
Everton and West Ham were also interested in Herrera last summer.
