West Ham United striker Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez is being linked with a move away from the Premier League, according to Marca.

Reports suggest that Spanish La Liga outfit Valencia have already agreed to bring the Hammers’ forward in on loan during the January transfer window.

Hernandez was brought to the London Stadium at the start of last season, when West Ham spent £16million to capture the Mexian forward.

During his first season back in England, Chicharito managed to find the net eight times in 33 appearances before featuring for his country in the World Cup, scoring in their 2-1 victory over South Korea.

In the current campaign, Hernandez has added a further five goals to his tally in his 16 outings so far, as West Ham sit 11th in the Premier League table.

The striker has missed the Hammers’ last two fixtures due to injury, and despite gaining more game time in December a move to Valencia seems imminent.

Hernandez has a wealth of experience, especially in the Premier League as he scored 37 times in the league for Manchester United between 2010 and 2015.

The 30-year-old arrived at West Ham off the back of a successful spell with Bayern Leverkusen, with a return of 39 goals in his 76 appearances for the German outfit.

Hernandez hasn’t been able to reach those heights so far for the Hammers, and he could spend the remainder of the season with Valencia looking to rediscover his form.
