Atletico Madrid midfielder Hector Herrera is on the radar of West Ham United as the Mexican is due to leave the Rojiblancos once the transfer window reopens.

The 30-year-old is out of contract at the end of June and has several offers on the table but is interested in a move to London.

According to the Independent, West Ham have been vying for Herrera’s signature since he turned down the opportunity to join the Hammers in January.

Herrera is exactly the box-to-box midfielder David Moyes is looking for to bolster his attack 

With an engine as efficient as someone much younger, Herrera is exactly the box-to-box midfielder David Moyes is looking for.

Herrera has spent the last five and a half seasons at Porto, scoring 35 goals in 245 games for the Portuguese club before signing for Madrid in 2019.

The Mexican was brought in to replace Rodri after he moved to City for €70 million (£62.8m).

Herrera turned down the option to join West Ham as he wanted to wait until the end his season with the Spanish giants, gaining as much first-team experience as possible in La Liga.

Moyes has signed Polish midfielder Tomas Soucek on an initial loan deal with the option to buy

Since then Moyes signed Polish midfielder Tomas Soucek on a loan deal that has an option to buy.

The Hammers have, however, been pining for the Mexican’s signature and will take the necessary action to get it – even if that includes releasing some of their high-rollers.

The club has revealed that no players are considered ‘off-limits’ this summer, including £45m club-record signing Sebastian Haller and Spanish midfielder Pablo Fornal.
