Why West Ham should go all out for Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is reportedly on the radar of Premier League rivals West Ham United.

West Ham United are reportedly looking for a striker and have allegedly identified Manchester United's Javier Hernandez as a key target.

According to The Daily Mail, the Hammers are preparing a bid of £8 million to secure the services of the Mexico international.

It remains to be seen what plans United have in store for Hernandez and indeed what the striker himself wants to do about his future, but West Ham should go all out to snap him up before the start of the upcoming 2015-16 campaign.

Although the 27-year-old was not in United’s plans last season and was sent out on loan to Spanish giants Real Madrid, he remains a proven Premier League quality player.

The former Guadalajara striker has been on the books of the Red Devils since 2010, and over the years he has shown his quality and importance.

Even last season when he struggled for playing time at Madrid, Hernandez scored seven goals, provided four assists, had a pass accuracy of 82% and a shot accuracy of 64%.

The Mexican is a mobile player who is powerful with his shots and has loads of experience. Moreover, the United man will bring with him a winning mentality and a hunger for success which will benefit West Ham.

The London outfit are aiming to make themselves a force in English football and break into the top eight of the Premier League.

Hernandez’s arrival is certainly going to make the Hammers’ genuine top-eight challengers and add more goals to Slaven Bilic’s side’s game.
