Valencia and West Ham United are negotiationg a deal for Javier Hernandez to sign for the Spanish club this month.
Los Che are in desperate need of a striker after allowing Belgian international Michy Batshuayi return from his loan spell to Chelsea and seeing the likes of Rodrigo and Kevin Gameiro struggle for goals.
Having scouted the market over the winter break, officials at the Spanish club indicated Mexican forward Hernandez as a potential option.
Reports in England and in particular – The Daily Mail claim that a loan bid was rejected on earlier this month.
However, it is understood that negotiations have started once again and Valencia are ready to push for a transfer to be completed before deadline day on the 31st of January – giving them eight days to tie up a deal.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are also said to be interested in a move for the striker.
Hernandez has spent the last 18 months at West Ham after signing from Bayer Leverkusen but has failed to find regular football.
The 30-year-old has scored 12 goals in 42 league appearances for the Hammers, whilst he has experience of playing in La Liga – having spent time with Real Madrid between the years of 2014 and 2015.
