Could the Mexican international be on his way to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer?
Back in the summer, the London Evening Standard claimed Spurs were lining up a £12million bid for the then-Manchester United man, but ultimately he swapped the Premier League for the Bundesliga, signing up at Bayer Leverkusen.
If Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy was indeed interested he will be kicking himself after seeing Hernandez excel this season, scoring 19 goals in his first 25 matches.
That is simply sensational form and it shows no sign of ending, with the Mexican international netting 10 times in his last eight league games.
But Hernandez has now been quoted as saying his future is unclear, with Tottenham reportedly one of the clubs set to be rubbing their hands at the prospect of getting him the second time around.
“I do not know if I will play next season at Bayer,” Hernandez said in comments published by Don Balon. “In six months everything can be different.”
Tottenham continue to search for a striker to compete with or play alongside Harry Kane, and there is no doubt that Hernandez would be a wonderful addition if the North London club could get their man either in January or more likely this summer.
