West Ham United are struggling to sell striker Javier Hernandez this summer, according to Football FanCast.

The online football outlet claim that the delay in completing a sale for the Mexican is significantly affecting the Hammers’ future plans for potential incomings.

Football FanCast report that West Ham would like to receive £10million for the sale of the £140,000-a-week forward [Spotrac].

The former Manchester United striker has reportedly informed the London club he would wish to leave this summer, with Record suggesting a move to Spain is his most likely destination.

Hernandez arrived at the Hammers from Bayer Leverkusen in 2017 and has only scored 16 goals in his 61 appearances.

This comes as no surprise that West Ham are expected to be reliant on these sales now. It has been the case since the beginning of the window. The surprise could come from the angle that they are reportedly struggling to get a deal confirmed to sell the Mexican. Many clubs have been linked with a move for Hernandez so a deal should materialise sooner rather than later, the only thing that may have to change is their reported £10million asking price. Most of the profit of getting rid of Hernandez would come with getting rid of his huge weekly income. This looks set to drag on for a while with Manuel Pellegrini wanting the 31-year-old to follow Andy Carroll and Lucas Perez in leaving the club. His goal record speaks for itself at the London Stadium, and it should lead to the club having no problem in closing the door behind him in the near future.
