And it appears the Argentine remains keen on bolstering his side ahead of the second half of the 2017/18 season.
Reports are suggesting he's preparing a move for Ander Herrera. Spanish outlet Diario AS claim the club are interested in signing him, as they continue to monitor his situation with the midfielder out of contract at the end of the season.

Herrera remains subject to transfer speculation with his United contract nearing an expiration, not to mention his fiery relationship with boss Jose Mourinho.
Could the 28-year-old be tempted with a move back to Spain should United sanction the transfer?

It seems like Simeone will test United's resolve with the Atleti manager seeking to strengthen his midfield. He currently calls upon Gabi, Thomas Partey, Koke and Saul Niguez.
Though he's in the market for another addition with Herrera supposedly at the top of his transfer wishlist.
