Tottenham eye move for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez as replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor

Tottenham are poised to step up their pursuit of Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez once Emmanuel Adebayor‘s season-long loan deal to Aston Villa is confirmed.

The Togolese target man should complete his move to last season’s FA Cup finalists later this week, following reports that he is set to undergo a medical with the Midlands outfit on Wednesday.

According to reports in Mirror Sport, Mauricio Pochettino has placed Hernandez at the top of his list of potential transfer targets to replace the former Arsenal and Manchester City striker at White Hart Lane.

Spurs have admired Hernandez for a while now and could take advantage of the uncertainty that is currently surrounding the Mexican’s future with the Red Devils.

The 27-year-old spent last season on loan at La Liga giants Real Madrid, but didn’t impress enough to be signed on a permanent basis and could once again be surplus to requirements at Old Trafford should manager Louis van Gaal be successful in his attempts to bring in another forward before the transfer window closes in just under a month’s time.
