Wolves should move for ‘wantaway’ West Ham striker Hernandez

Wolverhampton Wanderers should consider moving for West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez in January.

The Black Country club have been struggling to score goals lately, with Raul Jimenez lacking support up top.

The Mexico international, on a season-long loan from Benfica, has been heavily involved for Wolves so far.

He has scored three goals and made six assists, meaning he’s played a part in 76% of the team’s total goals scored in the Premier League so far.

He’s pulling his weight but certainly needs some support – and Nuno Espirito Santo has stated previously that he wishes to bring in another striker in January.

Liverpool’s Divock Origi was linked to Molineux last month, but perhaps Wolves should be trying to sign Hernandez instead.

Hernandez and Jimenez could be frightening

Wolves should make a move for Hernandez in January.

 

He is reported by El Gol Digital to want out of the London Stadium, most likely due to a lack of game time.

Hernandez rarely starts for the Hammers, having to make do with replacing Marko Arnautovic when the Austrian needs to come off or isn’t fit to start.

Hernandez, signed for £16 million from Bayer Leverkusen in 2017 (official club website), was poor against Cardiff City on Tuesday night, but did score a brace against Newcastle United last weekend.

He remains a fine poacher, and he could gobble up the chances that Jimenez squanders at Molineux.

One criticism of the burly forward is that he simply isn’t clinical enough, as good as he is at bringing others into play.

It could be a masterstroke signing depending on price, with Hernandez and Jimenez having already played together for Mexico.
