According to Premium Sport, Hector Herrera is now being linked to Scudetto champions Juventus.

The Porto midfielder was supposedly close to a move to Napoli before rejecting their offer and pulling out of the deal.

Due to the long running saga surrounding Paul Pogba and whether he will leave or stay, Juventus have scouted the market to look for ideal replacements. Nemanja Matic of Chelsea is considered the number one target to replace the French international, but if that move fails then Herrera is looked at as a back up.

Juventus have an excellent rapport with the Portuguese heavyweights due to the deal to bring Alex Sandro to the club and thus the transfer would be a smooth transaction.
