West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez has reportedly requested to leave the club with only two days remaining of the European transfer window.
The Hammers forward has struggled for regular and consistent form since moving to the club, and according to a report from the Daily Mail, is now seeking a move away from the Premier League outfit as he looks to secure a move ahead of Monday night.
The report from the Mail claims that Hernandez has lined up a move to Spanish giants Sevilla, with personal terms already agreed between the player and club.
The big money summer signing of Sebastien Haller has pushed Hernandez further down the pecking order at the London Stadium and it would appear now that the Mexican has accepted his fate as he looks to push through a move, believed to be worth in the region of £7-8m.
‘Chicharito’ has failed to get anywhere near the sort of form he showed at Bayer Leverkusen previously, with his best season for the Hammers yielding just eight goals in comparison to the 17 he notched in the Bundesliga during the 15/16 season.
West Ham, meanwhile, got themselves a win at the weekend with a fine 2-0 victory over Norwich City in which new signing Haller scored once again to seemingly further vindicate Hernandez’s decision to move away from the club.
Following Haller’s arrival, it’s no surprise to see Hernandez seek a move away from east London.
He did well in Germany, but it just hasn’t quite worked out for him during his second spell in the Premier League following his earlier stint with Manchester United.
Indeed, a move for the Mexican is probably best for all parties on this occasion.
