West Ham United have agreed a deal in principle to sign Javier Hernandez, the club’s official website has confirmed.

West Ham United will complete a deal for Javier Hernandez after he finalises personal terms and undergoes a medical.

This move can now go ahead after a deal was agreed between the two clubs.

West Ham are desperate to bring in at least one new striker this summer.

This is due to Andy Carroll’s constant injury concerns, Diafra Sakho’s injury problems and disciplinary issues and the fact that youthful duo Antonio Martinez and Ashley Fletcher are young, inexperienced and raw.

A proven Premier League goal scorer was on West Ham’s summer wishlist and Javier Hernandez is expected to solve this crisis.

The Mexican international is now set to jet in to finalise this deal.

“Chicharito” has proven his record of scoring goals in the Premier League during his five year stint with Manchester United between 2010 and 2015.

During that time, Hernandez netted 59 goals for the Red Devils and he has scored 39 goals in two seasons since joining Bayer Leverkusen in summer 2015.

The 29-year-old now returns to the Premier League after West Ham agreed a deal to snap him up.

He follows Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta through the door at the London Stadium, subject to the medical and personal terms.
