Correio da Manha claim Herrera is now ‘coveted by Arsenal’, with La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona also entering the race for the Mexico international.
It is stated that Porto have already rejected several offers made for Herrera, but the player is aware of the interest in him and wants to leave. Porto have attempted to tie him down to a new contract, but Herrera is said to have rejected an extension on three separate occasions.
Herrera has made exactly 200 appearances for Porto since moving to the club from Pachuca in his homeland five years ago. He was named Dragons captain during the 2015/16 season.
