West Ham forward Javier Hernandez is hoping to leave the London Stadium this summer and move back to Spain.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, relayed in an article by HITC, the former Real Madrid striker is keen on a switch back to La Liga. 

Valencia were keen on the forward back in January, however, the 30-year-old remained in London and made a further 12 appearances for the Hammers.

The same report suggests that the Mexican is attracting plenty of interest from America.

The former Manchester United striker is expected to leave the club this summer, however, the natural goalscorer is reportedly on a salary of £3.5m a year, which could be a stumbling block for any potential buyers. 

The Hammers are expected to lose two more strikers over the summer, with both Marko Arnautovic and Lucas Perez keen on departing the club. 

FC Porto’s Moussa Marega and West Brom’s Salomon Rondon have been tipped as potential replacements to lead the line for the Hammers next season under Manuel Pellegrini.
