Javier Hernandez is being eyed up for a potential move to the MLS this summer, and could be open to the idea, according to reliable source ExWHUemployee.
The £140,000-a-week Mexican striker [Spotrac] featured 28 times for the Hammers last season, hitting eight goals in all competitions, and has been linked with a summer move to Valencia, as reported by the Sun.
But posting on Twitter, ExWHUemployee claimed that he could be in line for a move stateside.
They said: “MLS and Spanish teams want him and he is open to both destinations.
“I think LA want to make him their pin up players especially with the large Mexican community there”.
Yes MLS and Spanish teams want him and he is open to both destinations. I think LA want to make him their pin up players especially with the large Mexican community there https://t.co/zIDmZh4Bwu

This is a bit of a turn-up for the books, but honestly it wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world. He may be a baby-faced assassin, but Chicharito is 31 now, and it wouldn’t be out of the question for him to wind down his career a little closer to home in north America. He would surely rip things up in the MLS, and if he were to be brought in by one of the LA clubs, with their high Hispanic fanbases, he would no doubt see his profile sky rocket. His form dropped a little last season, with an average of just 1.5 shots per game for the Hammers, as reported by Whoscored, but he would no doubt have a much easier time of things in the US. Wages could be an issue, but if he was willing to take a bit of a cut to move stateside, this could be a really good move for the Mexican poacher.
