According to The Sun, Javier Hernandez could make a summer move to Valencia. The West Ham striker is an £8m target for Valencia.

Hernandez has been at West Ham for two seasons but has not enjoyed as much game time as he would have hoped. As a result, he could seek a return to Spain this summer.

Manuel Pellegrini might sanction this sale as he needs to raise funds to bring in his new players. Valencia wanted Hernandez for £7m in January but West Ham rejected the bid (Sky Sports News).

But now he could be set for his move to Valencia. Chicharito could be one of three strikers leaving West Ham this summer with Andy Carroll released and Lucas Perez likely to depart.

The Hammers snapped Hernandez up from Bayer Leverkusen in summer 2017. In two seasons with West Ham, the Mexico international has scored 17 goals.

However, his diminutive height made him the wrong fit for Slaven Bilic and David Moyes. And he has drifted in and out of the West Ham team under Pellegrini this season.

The 30-year-old is one of West Ham’s top earners and his exit could free up funds for new additions. Valencia want to bring Chicharito back to Spain, where he previously represented Real Madrid.
