On December 30th, Super Deporte reported that Valencia are looking at Javier Hernandez of West Ham United as they believe there is a good chance of the deal taking shape in January.
The striker has managed to attract interest from other La Liga clubs, if a report from Spanish newspaper Marca is to be believed, as Sevilla and Real Betis have joined Los Che in the race to sign the 30-year-old.
Manuel Pellegrini has started him in only seven Premier League games and it’s explained the Mexican international’s intention is to become the main player to lead his side’s attack.
For this reason, Marca mentions the former Real Madrid man will not look at a move to Spain with bad eyes, but for the deal to take shape, the Premier League club needs to sanction his transfer.
The Hammers want to retain the player, and if Hernandez still wants to leave, then a possibility of a loan with a view to buy has been ruled out by the English side.
West Ham will only allow their player leave if potential suitors meet their €20m asking price.
If either of the aforementioned clubs are ready to pay the fee is still not clear, at least in Marca’s report.
