Spurs, Liverpool in contention to sign Javier Hernandez


Former Manchester United ace Javier Hernandez could be heading for a surprise return to the Premier League, should his £34m valuation be matched.

The Mexico international joined Bayer Leverkusen from the Red Devils in the summer of 2015 and has since netted 33 goals in all competitions for the club.

League leaders Chelsea have been recently linked with a £34m approach for the South American footballer whilst there is also interest from the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, who are hoping to add more firepower to their squads this month.

A report from The Sun now suggests that the 28-year-old could be heading for a top-flight return with Bayer sporting director Rudi Voller literally giving up on his hopes of keeping the striker.

Bayer had recruited ‘Chicharito’ – as he is commonly dubbed, for a mere sum of £7m, and the prospect of a near 400 percent profit could be too good to ignore for the German side.

Chicharito netted 37 league goals for Manchester United between 2010 and 2015, and he will seek to add more to his tally if he makes his England comeback.
