Roma linked with Atleti’s Hector Herrera, Gonzalo Villar could be inserted into the deal


Roma remain on the hunt for a midfield reinforcement before the close of the transfer window.

The Giallorossi have already acquired four players this summer, but manager José Mourinho is eager for one final purchase.

A host of midfielders have been linked to the capital club this summer, but except for Granit Xhaka—negotiations never reached an advanced stage.

Tonight, though, a new name has emerged as an option for the club: Atletico Madrid’s Hector Herrera.

Sky Sport reports that contact has already been initiated between the two clubs for the Mexican international, however, talks aren’t advanced.

It’s also a possibility that Roma’s Gonzalo Villar could be inserted into the deal, going the other way.

Before finalising any transfer, though, the Giallorossi must offload a few of their unwanted pieces such Javier Pastore, Federico Fazio, Steven Nzonzi, and Davide Santon.
