West Ham have set their price for Javier Hernández at $10-15million, according to ESPN.
But with Marko Arnautovic trying to force through a move, as has been reported by Sky Sports, West Ham could do with getting a replacement in if they do sell the Mexican.
Here are some hypothetical options of who they could choose to replace him, for around the same price or less…
Considering he now only has a £5million release clause after West Brom failed to get promotion, it is surprising that Jay Rodriguez is still with the Baggies.
He scored 22 Championship goals in 47 appearances last season, so while he may not be a starter, the former Burnley and Southampton man would be a useful back-up option.
Having signed Manuel Lanzini from United Arab Emirates in 2016, West Ham would be well advised to look at their neighbours Qatar for Almoez Ali.
The Al Duhail striker isn’t a household name, but was top scorer at the Asian Cup and also scored a wonderful curling effort against Fabián Balbuena’s Paraguay in Copa América.
At 22-years-old he could grow and wouldn’t likely be too much a financial risk.
Cristhian Stuani’s release clause is set at a measly €7million after Girona were relegated.
He may be 32-years-old, but getting a player who scored 19 La Liga goals last season for that price would be great business – but with Barcelona interested, the Hammers may have to wait to see if he is available.
He is known for his fiery nature – having picked up 14 yellow cards and three reds in all competitions last season – but Alfredo Morelos is also a potent finisher.
He netted 26 goals in 35 appearances for Rangers in 2018/19. If he can learn to stay calm, the Colombian international could prove to be a bargain – and would likely cost the same as or less than the fee Hernandez could be sold for.
