West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez is a target for Major League Soccer franchise Los Angeles FC, according to The Sun.

Hernandez was West Ham’s marquee signing this summer but has only found the net four times this term.

Under David Moyes, the 29-year-old has mainly been used as an impact substitute with Marko Arnautovic and Andy Carroll being preferred choices up top.

MLS outfit Los Angeles, who have actor Will Ferrell as one of their owners, are now interested in signing the Mexico international.

Hernandez is rated at £16.2m on transfermarkt, having signed for the Hammers in a £16m deal this summer.

But with a deal lasting until 2020 in East London, it is unlikely that he will depart the club this summer.

Hernandez’s career has seen him win many trophies during his time at Manchester United and he was at Bayer Leverkusen prior to his switch to West Ham.

But his time at West Ham has been plagued by a lack of service, several injury concerns and a loss of form.

His most recent outing was against Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup and he failed to make an impression against League One opposition.

The MLS could be the next step for Hernandez but it is unclear whether West Ham will entertain an offer for him just yet.
