Valencia eye Atlético Madrid midfielder Héctor Herrera

Héctor Herrera arrived at Atlético Madrid in 2019 and his contract expires in the summer of 2022. The Mexican midfielder has been mainly used as a substitute for Argentinean manager Diego Simeone and in 21 games across all competitions last season he gave two assists in a total of 978 minutes.

Looking for more minutes in LaLiga

The former Porto captain is looking for more minutes and before his contract expires with Atlétiico, he could switch teams during the summer transfer window. According to Tribuna VFC, Valencia’s manager, José Bordalás, wants the Mexican midfielder in his team for the 2021/22 campaign.

According to Transfermarkt, Los Che have to pay around $7 million to ‘Los Colchoneros’ for the Mexican international. The only problem is the financial crisis the Mestalla outfit are suffering due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Valencia are keen on signing Herrera, so they could negotiate a deal with Atlético Madrid to bring him to Mestalla in the next few weeks. He is currently with the Mexico national team and will play the first game of the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament against Trinidad and Tobago in Matchday 1 of Group A.
