Mexican club Cruz Azul are hoping to put an end to Enner Valencia's European adventure by taking him back to North America.

The Ecuador international joined West Ham in the wake of an excellent 2014 World Cup campaign but spent last season on loan at Everton, having failed to secure a first team spot at the Olympic Stadium.

Earlier today it emerged that Liga MX outfit Cruz Azul - under the direction of Spanish coiach Paco Jemez - are trying to put together a package that will lure Valencia back to Mexico, where he featured prior to moving to London three years ago (La Hora).

However the biggest stumbling block to a successful deal would be West Ham's demands, with the club seeking to recoup most of the ?12million they spent on signing the player dubbed 'Superman' in his home country.

Should Cruz - who finished 14th in the 18-team Torneo Apertura and 11th in the Torneo Clausura - be unable to secure a deal for Valencia, it is likely that they will turn their attention to former Liverpool and Chelsea star Fernando Torres.
