Javier Hernandez

Chicharito wants La Liga move says Valencia boss

West Ham striker Javier Hernandez would like to move to Valencia this month, according to the Spanish sides manager Marcelino.

Mexican international Hernandez joined the Hammers in a £16 million deal from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2017. However, he has struggled to find his best form in East London and is seemingly keen on a move to La Liga in order to play more regularly.

Howewver, it is thought that West Ham are only keen on letting the 30-year-old former Manchester United striker leave on a permanent transfer and not a loan deal.

“Chicharito is an option,” Marcelino told the press ahead of his sides La Liga clash with Villareal today.

“He is not getting much game-time and he is willing to join us, but the situation is complicated.

“The little information I have suggests to me that West Ham are only looking to sell the player.”

Hernandez has scored four Premier League goals in 15 outings for West Ham this season, although eight of those appearances have been from the bench.

It remains to be seen whether fellow attacker Marko Arnautovic’s announcement yesterday that he intends to remain at the London Stadium, will have any bearing on Hernandez’s future.
