Report: West Ham in talks with Sevilla over potential sale of Javier Hernandez

West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez could be leaving the club, with the Hammers in talks with Sevilla over a potential sale as reported by Sky Sports.

The Mexico international has just 10 months remaining on his current contract, and it’s the club’s last chance to get decent money for the 30-year-old.

The former Manchester United man joined the club from Bayer Levekusen in 2017 for around £16 million (BBC Sport) and has made 63 appearances for the club, scoring 17 goals.

Ominously, Manuel Pellegrini left Hernandez out of his matchday squad against Norwich City on Saturday, and the player recently admitted that he could depart.

TBR’s view

Although Hernandez has largely struggled since returning to English football, selling him would a big risk by West Ham.

 

Currently Sebastien Haller is the main striker at the club, but then there is only youngster Albian Ajeti in reserve.

Should Haller pick up an injury then West Ham could struggle.

Hernandez has bags of Premier League experience and the club could regret moving him on.

The fact that they are open to selling in this situation would suggest the player won’t be agreeing fresh terms, and points to a potential new striker coming in to replace him in January.
