The report suggest that the Cottagers have submitted an offer for the Mexico international, which the Portuguese outfit declined before asking for a higher transfer fee.
The report goes on to claim that Arsenal had been linked with Herrera in the past, but with Lucas Torreira joining the Gunners and Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny signing new deals at the Emirates, their interest has been cooled down.
