Premier League sides Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have both been linked with a move for former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez on Saturday, in The Mirror.

The Mexico international was a revelation at Old Trafford under Sir Alex Ferguson but was frozen out by the Scottish manager’s successors.

Hernandez moved to Bayer Leverkusen last summer and the chance to play regularly for the Bundesliga side has got the poacher’s career back on track.

Chicharito has netted 22 league goals since moving to the BayArena, with many Red Devils fans looking back and wondering why United sold him in the first place.

The report suggests that Hernandez could move to Anfield as a replacement for Daniel Sturridge, who Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is believed to be losing patience with.

Spurs are also being linked to the Mexican hitman, with summer signing Victor Janssen not hitting his straps in the Premier League as yet.

The report says that the Premier League duo face competition from Spanish side Valencia for Hernandez’s signature and that the striker has a £33.5 million release clause at Leverkusen that will need to be met.
