Arsenal are plotting a move to sign under-used Man United forward Javier Hernandez according to Football Direct News.

The 25 year old has played a very limited role at Old Trafford under David Moyes and is now not only behind Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney in the club’s striking pecking order but has also seen England youngster Danny Welbeck also push ahead this term.

Chicharito has earned just four Premier League starts this season and could be open to a fresh challenge and a move to the Emirates Stadium could be one the Mexican international would consider.

Currently Arsene Wenger overly relies on French forward Olivier Giroud and with Theo Walcott perhaps better used out wide, when fit, and Lukas Podolski struggling in his second season in the English top tier, there is certainly scope for a fresh addition to boost his attack.

Hernandez has more than proven himself at Man United but is in danger of wasting the best years of his career warming the bench.

Since his move to Man United back in July 2010 Hernandez has scored 57 goals in 143 appearances, of which 62 came from the bench, a strike-rate that any top level striker would be proud of.
