West Ham United are reportedly in talks with Bayer Leverkusen over the signing of Mexico international and former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.

West Ham United have reportedly been in talks with Bayer Leverkusen over the signing of striker Javier Hernandez.

The Mexico marksman scored 39 times in the past two seasons for Leverkusen after he moved to Germany from Manchester United in a £7.3m deal in August 2015.

According to Sky Sports News, the Hammers are interested in recruiting Chicharito because he has Premier League experience from his time with the Red Devils.

West Ham are also believed to have held talks this summer about signing Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City, Olivier Giroud from Arsenal, Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi and Anthony Modeste from Koln.

Hernandez, who is said to have a release clause of £13m, became El Tri's all-time leading goalscorer in May when he hit his 47th goal for his country in a 2-1 defeat to Croatia.
