Hector Herrera Fuels Real Madrid-Arsenal-Roma Rumors With Another Big UCL Display

Herrera had a goal and an assist, and Tecatito also scored in Porto's 4-1 win over Moscow.

After reportedly rejecting offers of a contract extension at Porto (it’s set to expire this summer), Mexico international Hector Herrera has been linked with a move to Arsenal, Tottenham, Real Madrid and AS Roma. The World Cup standout again demonstrated his immense quality — and only increased the speculation — with a commanding display in today’s 4-1 Champions League victory over Lokomotiv Moscow.

As early as the second minute, Herrera scored his second UCL goal of the campaign (to go along with the one he scored in Moscow back on Oct. 24). 

40 minutes later, Herrera turned provider when chipping a ball through for Moussa Marega to finish. 

And just like in the reverse fixture in Moscow, fellow El Tri international Jesus Corona also got in on the action for Porto’s third.

The finishing touches were applied by Otavio, and this strike is worth a watch. 

Herrera’s play was assured throughout, and there’s no club in Europe that wouldn’t like to add his blend of technical quality and defensive acumen in midfield. 

As enticing as a free transfer might be to potential suitors next summer, it’s hard to imagine a club not offering Porto something exorbitant to force the issue come January.
