West Ham United are looking to sell striker Javier Hernandez this summer and will accept offers of between £8-£10million, according to Claret & Hugh.

The reliable Hammers outlet claims that were Valencia, who were interested in the Mexican international in January, to offer the above sum they would be allowed to sign the 30-year-old.

There is said to be massive disappointment at the London Stadium over some of Hernandez’s recent behaviour. The club aren’t happy with his propensity for hand-ball goals and diving, while his form has been nothing to write home about either.

Football Fan Cast revealed earlier on Friday that West Ham were looking to offload the former Manchester United man this summer and that has now seemingly been corroborated by Claret & Hugh.

OPINION

Well it certainly seems as if the Mexican is heading for the London Stadium exit door with two separate outlets reporting that he will be on his way out in a few months time. It makes sense for him to be allowed to leave the club, as well, because his form has been a major disappointment this season. He’s got six goals in 24 games this term which is a relatively paltry return considering he is among the highest paid players at the club. Couple that with his recent simulation incidents and things like that and it doesn’t paint a pretty picture for Hernandez. Ultimately he is, at this stage, a massive waste of money. As Claret & Hugh’s report states, his departure will, in part, allow the Hammers to finance a move for Celta Vigo frontman Maxi Gomez. That would appear to be a huge upgrade, so if everything goes according to plan West Ham will be in a far better place at the start of next season.
