Spurs and Arsenal could be set to miss out on a midfield target, with Serie A giants Roma plotting a bid according to a report.
Spurs have doubts continuing over Mousa Dembele’s future in north London, while Unai Emery is continuing his overhaul of the Arsenal squad.
Porto paid just €11m for Herrera back in 2013 and despite his high release fee, it is more likely that the player will be sold for a figure in the region of €20m.
Now, Italian outlet Il Corriere dello Sport are claiming that Seria A giants Roma are plotting a €15m January bid to try and beat Inter Milan to Herrera.
The player is said to be keen on a move away from Porto but has a €40million release clause, and Real Madrid are said to have shown an interest after watching the 28-year-old’s outstanding display in the World Cup.
