Manchester United have made an inquiry about West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez, according to a report by The Telegraph.

Javier Hernandez is one of a number of forward targets being lined up by Manchester United in the January transfer window.

Alexis Sanchez is top of Man United’s list, according to this report, as they look to pip rivals Manchester City to the Chile international’s services.

Sanchez’s Arsenal contract is set to expire, hence the widespread interest in him.

Jamie Vardy of Leicester is another option.

The England international is having another successful year with the Foxes and Man United could look to tempt him to Old Trafford.

But an emotional return for former star Javier Hernandez is also on the table.

West Ham are open to listen to offers for the £16.2m-rated man, who has failed to live up to expectations since his summer switch from Bayer Leverkusen.

West Ham fans were excited about his arrival but he has only netted four goals and has mainly been used as an impact substitute by David Moyes since he took over from Slaven Bilic.

The 29-year-old’s last goal was back in October and Moyes seems to prefer Marko Arnautovic, Michail Antonio or Andy Carroll in the centre forward role.
