It has been reported that West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has made the 29-year-old his number one transfer target this summer after pulling out of the race to sign Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud.
Former West Ham winger Sinclair believes that the ex-Guadalajara star would be a good signing for the Hammer.
“For me, I would like to see them go for Chicharito, Javier Hernandez from Bayer Leverkusen,” Sinclair told BBC Sport’s Facebook live (July 14, 2017). “Scored nearly 80 goals in the last three seasons for big clubs, Real Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen.
“He should be the one they are going for. 29, proven, got the quality, definitely a fox in the box. If they could get him, I would be delighted for West Ham.”
Could Tottenham Hotspur gazump West Ham United?
West Ham seem to be facing competition in the race for Hernandez from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham need to sign a striker in the summer transfer window in order to provide Harry Kane with back-up and some support.
