Javier Hernandez was labelled as the marquee striker signing West Ham had been craving for years when he arrived for £17m from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer but the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star could be on the move just six months into his Hammers career.
The Mirror are reporting that West Ham are ready to listen to offers for the Mexico international during the January transfer window following a tough start to the season.
Chicharito has scored just four Premier League goals so far this season and has made only one Premier League start under David Moyes who insists he has faith in the diminutive striker to deliver.
It’s well reported that the pair didn’t see eye-to-eye at Manchester United during Moyes’ brief stint in charge at Old Trafford and clearly he doesn’t favour the 29-year-old at the London Stadium either.
Andy Carroll and Marko Arnautovic have been preferred as the central striker since Moyes took over in November, leaving Hernandez to wait for his opportunities off the bench.
MLS outfit LA Galaxy have been linked with a move for Chicharito this month but it’s unknown whether the could meet West Ham’s demands.
Hernandez isn’t the only striker who could leave this month with Diafra Sakho reportedly a target for Crystal Palace.
David Moyes is looking to fund his own signings this month, with Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey, Bouremouth’s Harry Arter and Anderlecht’s Leander Dendoncker all on his wishlist, while out-of-favour Liverpool pair Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge, along with Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi, are all shortlisted as potential additions should the Hammers offload a forward this month.
