White Hart Lane side chase Old Trafford squad player.
Last season, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino was overly reliant on England youngster Harry Kane, and even though the 21-year-old bagged 31 goals, the north London side still fell short of their top four ambitions.
Big-money signings Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado both failed to net regularly and experienced forward Emmanuel Adebayor was similarly ineffective.
27-year-old Mexican international Hernandez spent last season on loan at Real Madrid and has returned to Old Trafford to fight for a spot in Louis van Gaal’s starting eleven.

Hernandez has spent much of his time at Man United playing second fiddle to the likes of van Persie and Wayne Rooney and the time may be right for a fresh challenge.
There is no doubting that if given the opportunity, Hernandez can be a lethal Premier League forward.
Hernandez’s tally of 59 goals in 154 appearances is all the more impressive when you consider 69 of those appearances were from the bench.
With a strong run of first team action, Hernandez could thrive and Pochettino could elect to use the Guadalajara-born ace alongside Kane if he manages to land the Old Trafford bit-part player this summer.
