West Ham supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern are intrigued by further reports linking them with yet another striker, this time from the London Evening Standard.
The Hammers are reportedly set to return to Manchester United with an improved offer for Mexican striker Javier Hernandez.
The forward nicknamed ‘The little pea’, appears to be surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, and spent last season on loan at Real Madrid.
The Hammers have been on the hunt for a new striker all summer, but the search has intensified this week following the news Enner Valencia is set to miss at least three months of the season with an ankle and knee injury sustained in a Europa League qualifer last week.
Manager Slaven Bilic has been linked with QPR forward Charlie Austin, yet is still reluctant to pay the £15million asking price.
West Ham have already seen a bid of £8.5million for Hernandez rejected, and Bilic is now expected to return with an improved offer of £12million.
A group of Hammers fans playing darts here in the Transfer Tavern feel Hernandez would be a sensational signing for the club, and it would show just how far the club have come over the past few seasons!
