Saul has been heavily linked with a move away from the La Liga champions.
In addition to Barcelona’s reported interest in swapping Antoine Griezmann for the Spanish midfielder, a host of Premier League clubs including Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea are in contention.
The 23-year-old spent the last two seasons on loan at La Liga outfit Granada and played a key role behind the club’s qualification for Europa League in the 19/20 season.
Although Pep Guardiola is interested in adding him to the squad for the upcoming season, the Venezuelan international is thought to have no future with the Premier League seasons. He is yet to make a major appearance after joining them in 2017.
However, Atletico are expected to be facing tough competition from West Ham United, who are also interested in signing Herrera.
Atletico’s squad depth was hailed by many in the last season as they went on to clinch the La Liga title by breaking the duopoly of Real Madrid and Barcelona. Los Rojiblancos will look to make further reinforcements to continue their dominance next season.
They have recently signed Rodrigo De Paul from Udinese in one of the exciting transfers of La Liga this summer, and the Argentine midfielder will be moving to Wando Metropolitano on the back of a standout Copa America campaign where he was pivotal behind the team to lift the trophy.
