According to the Italian news outlet, Corriere dello Sport, Inter Milan could land Porto captain Hector Herrera on a free transfer next summer.
With Roberto Gagliardini and Matias Vecino, both flopped under Luciano Spalletti, the Nerazzurri are looking to reinforce their midfield department.
Moreover, Borja Valero is not getting any younger, which leaves Marcelo Brozovic the only reliable option in the center of the park. Therefore, the Milanese giants have already started to work on finding the potential solutions.
The name of Hector Herrera seems to be the most appealing one to Luciano Spalletti, who desperately need to inject some energy and vision into his sloppy midfield.
The 28-year-old Mexican had an impressive World Cup with his national team, which has further invited attention towards his name.

Two Premier League heavyweights, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, have already expressed their interest in the Porto star.
However, Inter are ready to exploit a lack of the Spurs’ and Gunners’ initiative and snatch the deal before the competition.
The Serie A outfit have already opened talks with Herrera over a Bosman transfer in the summer, with Spalletti planning to pair him up with Radja Nainggolan in the heart of the midfield.
