Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is a target for Italian champions Juventus this summer, according to the Daily Express.

The 24-year-old’s future has come under much speculation this summer, as it appears he has grown dissatisfied with life at Old Trafford after a difficult season.

The Mexican scored 17 times in all competitions for the Red Devils, but was in and out of the team despite his impressive goal-scoring record, leading to interest from other top European clubs.

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have both shown an interest, with the former looking for players in exchange if United look to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo, and the latter preparing for life after the imminent sale of Radamel Falcao.

However, Juventus are also on the lookout for strikers this summer, having been linked with the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Carlos Tevez and Stevan Jovetic to bolster their attacking options.

Hernandez could be available for relatively cheap if he tries to force an exit from United, and Juve would be keen to pounce for the talented goal-poacher, as their other targets may not be available.

United, meanwhile, are also preparing to lose another striker this summer in Wayne Rooney, and have targeted the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Burak Yilmaz as potential replacements.
