According to the reports from England, Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers go head-to-head for the Porto captain Hector Herrera.
The Mexican midfielder will be a free agent next summer, as he is yet to commit his future to the Dragons.
Although some recent information suggested he might be extending his contract, it seems the former Pachuca man is on his way out.
The Serie A giants, Inter Milan and AS Roma, have also shown their interest in signing the 28-year-old, but the Premier League sides are now trying to hijack the deal.
With Aaron Ramsey on step away from parting ways with the Gunners, Unai Emery is searching for a decent replacement.
However, Wolves might eventually be the one winning the race considering the club has a close relationship with the Portuguese super-agent, Jorge Mendes.
Probably the most influential football agent on the planet has already helped the Wanderers over some previous transfers.
Rui Patricio, Diogo Jota, Rúben Neves, and João Moutinho are some of the players who arrived at the Molineux Stadium thanks to Mendes’ intervention.
