Javier Hernandez is keen on a move to Valencia and West Ham are willing to sell him this month, according to the Spanish side’s manager Marcelino.
Sky Sports News reported earlier this month that Hernandez is eager to leave the Hammers because of his lack of game-time, and that Valencia are interested in bringing him to La Liga.
Ahead of Valencia’s game against Villarreal on Saturday, Marcelino confirmed his interest in the Mexican striker, saying: “Chicharito is an option.
“He is not getting much game-time and he is willing to join us, but the situation is complicated.
“The little information I have suggests to me that West Ham are only looking to sell the player.”
Hernandez has started just seven Premier League games this season, and has scored four goals in 15 games in all competitions.
Valencia want to sign a striker during the January transfer window, with Michy Batshuayi likely to leave the club this month.
The on-loan Chelsea forward has not settled in Spain, and is interesting Everton and Monaco, according to Sky sources.
