Arsenal and Tottenham target Hector Herrera is on the verge of signing for Atletico Madrid, according to a report in Spain.

AS claim the in-demand Mexico international midfielder is heading for the Spanish capital next season after agreeing a move to the La Liga side.

Herrera has chosen the Wanda Metropolitano as his next destination, with a five-year contract understood to be on the table.

Porto captain Herrera, 28, is out of contract in the summer, and has attracted the attention of several European clubs with no signs that he will pen a new deal in Portugal.

Arsenal are looking for a replacement for Aaron Ramsey and with money tight at the Emirates Herrera is understood to be on their radar.

The Mexico star has racked up over 200 appearances for the Portuguese heavyweights, as well as 70 international caps and has ample Champions League experience.

Herrera has featured in 38 matches across all competitions for Porto this season, scoring six goals.
