The 22-year-old is expected to be on the move in the not too distant future, with Porto and a side from France also keen on acquiring his services.
Speculation suggests that the Premier League side in the running is Manchester United, with Sir Alex Ferguson having enjoyed success in the Mexican market before - when snapping up Javier Hernandez.
It is believed that an offer of around £9million would be enough to secure the services of Herrera, a man who helped Mexico to take gold at the 2012 Olympics Games.
"At this moment there is no concrete offer on the table, but there certainly is a lot of interest," Pachuca president Jesus Martinez told ESTO.
"Porto are not the only side in the race. There is also a club from England and another one in France.
"Pachuca plan to sell Herrera in the summer of 2013, but it will have to be a good deal for the club."
