West Ham agree deal to sign striker Javier Hernandez

West Ham have agreed a deal with Bayer Leverkusen to sign Mexico striker Javier Hernandez.

The Hammers have confirmed Hernandez, 29, will arrive in London in the next few days to finalise personal terms and undergo a medical.

Hernandez, Mexico’s all-time leading scorer, is set to become manager Slaven Bilic’s third summer signing after full-back Pablo Zabaleta and goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Bilic has been desperate to sign a forward after injuries to Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho meant West Ham ended last season with on-loan Jonathan Calleri, who scored one deflected goal in 19 appearances, playing in attack.

Hernandez is a proven Premier League performer, having scored 59 goals during a four-year spell with Manchester United.

The player, known as ‘Chicharito’, then moved to Real Madrid on loan in 2014 and a year later signed for Leverkusen, where he scored 28 Bundesliga goals in 54 appearances.

Assuming the move goes through as planned, Hernendez could make his West Ham debut against former club United at Old Trafford on August 13.
