BREAKING: West Ham Hold Talks With Javier Hernandez
Just two seasons after he left the Premier League, following his move from Manchester United to Bayer Leverkusen, Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez could be making his way back to the English top flight.
The Mexican striker, who recently became his country's all time top scorer, is currently in talks with West Ham United over a potential summer move, according to Sky Sports, with the former United man reportedly available for £13 million.

Hernandez has scored 39 goals in 76 appearances since joining Leverkusen and hit 37 goals in 103 Premier League games for United between 2010 and 2015, where he spent the 2014/15 season on loan at Real Madrid, having fallen out of favour at OId Trafford following Louis Van Gaal's appointment as manager.
The 29-year-old has also been linked with a move to Tottenham and MLS side LA Galaxy, although it would appear the Hammers are currently in pole position to sign the Leverkusen hitman.
