Rumour Mill: Spurs Want Hernandez?

According to The Express, London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are eyeing up a move to bring Javier Hernandez back to the Premier League.

Javier Hernandez enjoyed a 5 year spell at Manchester United winning two Premier League titles and two Community Shields before being sold to Bayer Leverkusen for a lowly £7.3 million in 2015.

German outlet Bild now claims that the Mexican international is looking to leave the German outfit and has used this Summer’s Confederations Cup in Russia as a platform to showcase his worth to potential suitors.

Bild also states that arch rivals Spurs and West Ham are keen on the 29 year old striker, with French side Lyon also eager to snap up the experienced forward, according to The Express.

Bild reports that Hernandez has just one year left on his current deal in Germany and could be available on the cheap thanks to a £13.2 million release clause.

I reckon Hernandez could be a good signing for that much needed experience in Europe. He could even help Janssen find his feet, off-field. I wouldn’t want to spend more than £10 million though.

But what do you think? Do you think we should sign Hernandez? And for how much?


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. For 10 or less, he might be worth a punt. Anything more than that should be spent on our priorities (a RW player at the minimum, either boosting Walker’s pay or finding his replacement, a CAM who can relieve Eriksen/Alli when needed, and another wide player on the left to compensate for the space at Wembley). Technically, we can rely on Kane, Son, and Janssen to rotate as a forward, so this isn’t really a high priority to me.

  2. We were not interested in him in 2015 when all the redtop media where saying it was a done deal and we are not interested in him now. Just press talk like 99% of the rumours.
