The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been begging their club to act on this transfer rumour that has seen Mexican World Cup star, Hector Herrera, linked with a move to The Emirates. According to The Daily Mirror, Unai Emery is keen to strengthen his midfield this summer and Herrera would be the perfect fit.
For the Arsenal fans propping our bar up, Hector Herrera would not have been a name they would have heard of a few weeks ago. However, that’s the beauty of the World Cup as the fans are now raving over Herrera and would love to see him sign this window after his heroics with Mexico have pushed his name into the spotlight alongside some of his international teammates, namely Hirving Lozano alongside him.
The Porto and Mexico midfielder has been superb in the World Cup group stages and starred in the North American sides’ 1-0 win over World Champions, Germany in their opening game. This summer will be one that sees a lot of internationals get big transfers and Herrera will want to be included in that. His performances have been mesmerising and the Gunners would love to see him at the peak of his powers in North London next season.

I'm pretty sure Herrera could do well with arsenal he's strong. Proved himself vs teams like Brazil Germany Holand etc. And he's been Porto' s captain
