West Ham eager to bring in Man City midfielder Yangel Herrera



Manchester City midfielder Yangel Herrera is set to leave the club this summer, with West Ham interested in bringing in the Venezuelan according to Spanish football expert Euan McTear.

The 23-year-old has spent the last two seasons on loan at Granada in LaLiga and has seen his market value rise significantly during his time in Spain.

City brought Herrera in from Venezuelan outfit Atlético Venezuela for less than £1million back in 2017, and has made zero appearances for the Citizens since the move.

The tenacious midfielder made 46 appearances for Granada in the 2020/21 season, scoring 8 goals.

“He’s [Herrera] been at Granada for more than a couple seasons now in a row, he’s been key to their qualification for Europa League and then the run to the quarter-finals.

“He’s like a classic box-to-box midfielder, a bit of a throwback in that way, his first instinct is to try and dribble, to pass it forward, charging forward he took so many shots this season said Euan McTear.

The Daily Mail have stated that West Ham are interested in his services and that he could be available for around £20m.

If the 23-year-old was to make the move to the London Stadium then David Moyes may have to switch up the current midfield dynamic which currently includes Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.

Herrera has been with Venezuela at the Copa America, but after picking up an injury will miss the rest of the tournament.
