Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is on the way back to the Premier League, after West Ham United have agreed terms with Bayer Leverkusen to bring the player to London.
The Mexico international has played with the Bundesliga outfit since 2015, and it has been a hugely successful spell seeing the forward scoring 28 goals in 54 appearances. Across the two seasons, he picked up a remarkable four Bundesliga Player of the Month awards.
An official club statement announced the news this evening.
West Ham United and Bayer Leverkusen have agreed terms for the transfer of Javier Hernandez to London Stadium.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid striker will fly to London in the coming days to finalise personal terms and undergo a medical with the Hammers.
Hernandez, 29, affectionately known as ‘Chicharito’ across the globe, became Mexico’s all-time leading goalscorer in May this year.
Hernandez was highly rated by fans at Old Trafford, but was loaned out to Real Madrid in the 2014/15 season and he eventually moved to Germany.
At 29, Chicharito still has much to offer, and fans of The Hammers can look forward to him forming a partnership with Andy Carroll at the London Stadium. Signing a player with a proven track record in England seems like a serious signing by West Ham.
