The 23-year-old is currently on loan with Granada. He is set to return to the Etihad to link up with Pep Guardiola again in the summer, however.

The 23-capped Venezuela international midfielder has really impressed in Spain, racking up 10 goals and five assists in 74 games (Transfermarkt).

The Hammers moving to sign Man City ace Herrera in the summer would certainly make sense. David Moyes in desperate need of bolstering his central midfield ranks at the London Stadium.

Despite having been with City for years now, Herrera is still yet to make an appearance for the Premier League leaders.

And if he is guaranteed regular first-team football at the London Stadium, a move to West Ham this summer may well make a lot of sense for the good of his career.
