Premier League Duo To Battle Over Javier Hernandez' Premier League Return

Premier League Duo To Battle Over Javier Hernandez' Premier League Return

Javier Hernandez, Chicharito, the little green pea, no matter how you name him the Mexican striker means goals and two Premier League clubs are set to battle for his services this summer.

Hernandez' first goal in English football came in the Community Shield for Manchester United when he mis-kicked the ball into his own face before it went across the line. He always seems to find a way to score, even if it's hilariously accidental.

This may surprise you but goals are pretty important in football, granted if you've been a season ticket holder at Old Trafford in the last few years this might actually come to a surprise to you.

So it's no wonder that Chicharito is a big commodity in the transfer window, after all even Ron Burgundy was begging him to join Anchorman FC, or whatever his American 'soccer' team is called.

According to German newspaper Bild there are two Premier League sides set to fight it out for the Mexican. The paper reports that Spurs and West Ham will battle for the striker's, very reasonably priced, €15 million transfer.

There is a slight spanner in the works for the two London rivals as they aren't the only ones who would like to add the 29 year-old to their team. The report also names Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille as being in the hunt.

Chicharito has been in Germany for the past two seasons having left Old Trafford, after a year spent on loan at Real Madrid, and has performed pretty well for Bayer Leverkusen.

In his first season at the BayArena he netted 26 times in 40 appearances for Roger Schmidt's side and this season scored another 13, nothing on the previous season, as Schmidt lost his job.

Bild reported earlier in the year that his teammates aren't the striker's biggest fans and see him to be selfish, although as a striker you'd kind of hope he was!

That's why he could be available for pretty cheap.
