Report: Inter fighting Valencia for Hernandez

Javier Hernandez

Inter are pursuing Manchester United outcast Javier Hernandez but they may be forced to fight Valencia.

Things haven't quite worked out for Javier Hernandez at Manchester United but he seems to be in high demand.

Inter's main transfer priority ahead of next season is finding a reliable goal getter and Hernandez could be their man.

The Serie A side have been looking at Manchester City star Edin Dzeko and Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata, but at present the two most viable targets seem to be Chelsea man Fernando Torres and Hernandez.

It is being reported in the Italian press that Torres has rejected the possibility of joining Inter on loan, so the Nerazzurri may be focusing on Chicharito.

The Corriere dello Sport believes that Inter may face competition from Spanish side Valencia for both Torres and Hernandez.

It looks likely that if Torres has rejected Inter, he will also reject Valencia, so both sides may slug it out for Hernandez.

But whether Manchester United will let Hernandez leave remains to be seen even if his role has been peripheral of late.

The arrival of Louis van Gaal could provide the Mexican with the chance to relaunch his career at Old Trafford and despite featuring little last season he performed respectably when he was given the chance.
