Hernandez in, Zaza out?

La Liga side Valencia are preparing to offload former Hammer Simone Zaza - in order to make room for Javier Hernandez.

The Mexican international has made no secret of his disappointment at having failed to secure a first team spot at West Ham under Slaven Bilic or David Moyes, and is set to cut his losses by moving on during the summer.

Naturally there is no shortage of interested parties whilst one of his most earnest potential suitors are Los Che, who signed Italian international Zaza on a full-time contract last summer.

However in order to make room for the possible acquisition of Hernandez, the former Juve striker is also likely to be moving on at the end of the campaign - according to reports in Spain (El Gol Digital).

With Santi Mina and #19 Rodrigo currently first choice at the Mestalla Stadium, Zaza - who has scored 12 times for Valencia this season, although only twice since last December - is set to be the fall guy, not for the first time in his career.

Hernandez, who has looked at times like a luxury player in a team battling for its very survival had scored eight times for West Ham since his 14million move from Bayer Leverkusen last summer.

West Ham will be seeking to recapture as much of that outlay as possible for the Mexican international, who celebrates his 30th birthday this June.
