Report: Hammers and Spurs interested in Hernandez

Javier-Hernandez-007West Ham and Spurs are claimed to be holding a keen interest in Javier Hernandez according to  German newspaper Bild.

The former Manchester United hitman is out of contract with Bayer Leverkusen hitman next summer and it is claimed the club could entertain offers for the 29-year-old.

The newspaper adds that he could even be made available for as little as £13 million.

The Hammers first showed an interest in the Mexican back in the summer of 2015 before he decided to move to his present club.


He netted 11 goals in 20 Bundesliga starts last season and earlier reports in Bild claimed he was an unpopular figure in the Leverkusen dressing room with his lack of contribution to general play and an unfriendliness with team-mates said to be the reasons.

However, later he claimed to be entirely at ease  at the club telling bundesliga.com ‘Why would I like to stay in the Bundesliga? Because I feel good and I’m happy.’

  1. We have also been linked with a Colombian player called Jose Izquierdo who plays for Club Brugge, he looks pretty exciting on youtube, pacy and tricky a bit like Antonio but can play left wing or centrally as a striker, looks like he knows where the goal is and unlike Antonio scores plenty with his feet.

    • Good one Sherlock 32. Seriously I am not optimistic anymore on our ability to get the players we need.As always we are linked with everyone and end up with “no-ones”

      • Well the press are too blame with linking us to all and sundry Roman.Dont believe the press and you wont feel like we are not getting targets we probably never wanted anyway.

        • Thanks mate.You are right the press have got to me.I just WISH for once we can get the quality we need.

  2. It’s like grounghog day. The media throw another name in the mix & get the same reaction from some of the fan base.

  3. Most likely the Hernandez story is a recycle of last summers window.

  4. We will get our strikers in guys, just relax, there will some seriously embarrassed posters on the blogs in 6 weeks time looking back at their crap. The money will be spent the players will come. The board can’t afford to fail and their targets are simple; goal scoring strikers. Anything else will be punt and bonus. Personally I can see Barclay, Sigussen or Wiltshire coming as the Brucie Bonus. Just be patient.

  5. Yes think you are right 32. He was another one ‘linked’ to us last year. Good scoring record but I watched some of Mexico v Germany last night & thought he was pants. Spent all his time moaning at the service he was getting.

    Still think we may regret not going for Defoe. But I agree the wage being quoted was high- did Bournemouth cough up does anyone know?

  6. Hernandez is a excellent finisher……..I’m skeptical at the accuracy of these transfer stories as I’m sure most of us are.
