Forget Hernandez, West Ham need to replace the Mexican with this Championship youngster

West Ham United have begun to pick up some serious form under new manager David Moyes, as the club look to be on their way to cementing their Premier League status for yet another season.

The Hammers got themselves off to a miserable start to the season and many of their fans here in the Tavern were seriously worried that their club would end 2018 back down in the Championship.

The club spent big money in the summer on various big name signings, and some have paid off, but our landlord is getting somewhat fed up of seeing abject and poor performances from former Man United striker Javier Hernandez.

The Mexican has been in poor form and seems to have struggled to adapt back in England, however, our gaffer thinks that Nottingham Forest could hold the key for the club replacing him in the form of young striker ace Tyler Walker.

The youngster has been a tremendous asset to Forest this season and looks every bit like being able to develop into a top player either at Championship or Premier League level.

While Forest have a rich history of producing top young talent and the current big name young star in the camp is Ben Brereton, young forward Walker is someone who appears to have all the tools to go just as far as or achieve more than Brereton.

It might not be the most obvious signing, but it is one that could pay dividends for the Hammers, while the sale of Hernandez will generate some much needed funds to put towards securing a deal for Walker.

Hammers fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
