Report: Juventus make loan bid for Hernandez

According to transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà, Juventus are preparing to turn to Javier Hernandez and it is being reported they have made an approach.

Javier Hernandez hasn't been the primary target for Juventus, but it is being reported that the Italian champions have made a loan bid for him.

Juventus have been linked with various forwards since their new recruit Alvaro Morata suffered a knee injury in his first training session with the team.

With Stevan Jovetic starring for Manchester City against Liverpool, any chance of a move for the Montenegrin has been snuffed out, and Juve have turned to other options.

According to Italian journalist and transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà, Juventus have been pushing for a loan deal for Monaco star Radamel Falcao, but a move looks complicated.

Arsenal's Lukas Podolski was also in the frame, but there are a number of potential suitors for the German international and Juventus aren't expected to chase further.

There are reports from the Express that Juventus have tabled a loan bid for Javier Hernandez, which Manchester United are now considering.

The Old Lady are said to be able to deal with Hernandez's £80,000-per-week wage bill, which is far less than Falcao's.

While any possible loan wouldn't be part of the Arturo Vidal talks, it could promote friendly relations between the clubs and assist talks.
