Hammers back in for Hernandez?

West Ham's search for a striker has extended to former Manchester United star Javier Chicharito Hernandez.

The Bayer Leverkusen forward, who has spent the last two seasons in Germany's Bundesliga is entering the final season of a three-year contract and is yet to agree a new deal, alerting a string of clubs across the continent.




And one of those, according to ESPN are West Ham, who remain in the hunt for a new striker having already missed out on primary targets Henry Onyekuru and Kelechi Iheanacho.

The Guadalajara-born Hernandez is said to be available for circa 15million as the result of a release clause in his contract. He scored 13 times and provided four assists in 36 appearances for Leverkusen last season.

* Former Hammers target Carlos Bacca is on the verge of sealing a move to Marseille, according to Bein Sports.

It has been suggested that talks have already begun with view to a permanent transfer for the 30-year-old Colombian, who snubbed a move to West Ham last summer.




* Newcastle United are the latest club to express an interest in Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Long linked with a move to West Ham, the England international has also been linked with bitter rivals Manchester United, who will only move for Hart should first choice David De Gea return to Real Madrid.

* West Ham's interest in Malaga forward is over after Everton completed the capture of the 21-year-old this evening (Sunday).

The former Barcelona Academy star has signed a five-year deal with the Toffees and is thought to have cost 5.25million - his minimum fee release clause.
