West Ham United have held discussions with Javier Hernandez as they seek to solve their striker crisis, according to Sky Sports News.

West Ham want to sign one or two strikers this summer as they aim to land a goal scorer to fire them up the table.

Javier Hernandez fits the bill and could be the solution for the Hammers.

With a £13m release clause, West Ham United could secure a cut-price deal for the Mexican international.

The former Manchester United forward has experience of playing Premier League football and he was impressive for the Red Devils when called upon.

Two years ago, Hernandez joined Bayer Leverkusen and he has scored 39 goals since making that switch.

West Ham are hoping to snap up Chicharito to lead the line next year.

The Irons’ two main options (Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll) both suffered lengthy injuries last season while loan duo Simone Zaza and Jonathan Calleri failed to impress.

Alongside Javier Hernandez, West Ham will also consider Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud, Manchester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho, FC Koln’s Anthony Modeste and Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi.

But the East London outfit have already held discussions with the diminutive Mexican, who is the all-time leading goal scorer for his country.
