West Ham launch £11.9m bid for Man United star as Slaven Bilic identifies ideal striker signing

West Ham have launched an £11.9m bid for Man United forward Javier Hernandez according to the Metro.

Upton Park boss Slaven Bilic is without forwards Andy Carroll and Enner Valencia, both sidelined with injuries, and the Croatian has now set his sights on experienced Mexican Javier Hernandez.

The 27-year-old spent last season out on loan at Real Madrid but has found his way back into Louis van Gaal’s first team set-up, though this is chiefly down to a lack of options open to the Dutch manager.

Despite making just six starts during his season long loan spell at the Bernabeu, Chicharito still managed to bad seven goals.

The Old Trafford man is a proven Premier League marksman who has racked up 59 goals in 154 appearances for Man United, of which 69 were from the bench.
