Javier Hernandez Hands In West Ham Transfer Request As Former Man Utd Star Nears Sevilla Move

 Javier Hernandez scored against Brighton but could have played his last game for West Ham

Javier Hernandez has reportedly handed in a transfer request at West Ham to force through a Sevilla move.

The Mexican striker, 31, has seen summer arrivals Sebastien Haller and Albian Ajeti move ahead of him in the pecking order.

And as Sevilla try to hammer out a deal, the Daily Mail reports that Hernandez is doing what he can to speed up talks.

He reportedly travelled to Spain yesterday to agree personal terms, with Hammers chiefs holding out for £8million.

Manuel Pellegrini forked out £40m to sign Haller, 25, from Eintracht Frankfurt this summer.

And the Frenchman has bagged two goals in his first two games to leave fans hoping he can fire their side up the table.

Hernandez spent five years at Manchester United after arriving from his homeland in 2010.

He scored several key goals for the Red Devils before moving to Bayer Leverkusen after a short spell on loan at Real Madrid.

West Ham swooped to sign him in 2017 and he scored 17 times in 63 games – including one in two this season.

But the Hammers are happy to cash in  as Pellegrini looks to build a squad capable of challenging for Europe.

He will start by welcoming promoted Norwich in what could be a high-scoring affair at the London Stadium.
