Atletico Madrid look to Porto’s Hector Herrera

Atletico Madrid are eyeing up a deal to bring FC Porto captain Hector Herrera to the club on a free transfer this summer, according to reports.

Herrera joined the Portuguese champions from Pachuca in 2013 for €11m but has only six months remaining on his contract at the Estadio Dragao.
