West Ham braced for loan offer for £16m summer signing – report
West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez is attracting interest from Turkish champions Besiktas who would like to sign the forward on a loan deal, according to a report.
The Daily Mail state that Besiktas are on the hunt for a replacement for Cenk Tosun after the striker moved to Everton earlier in the window.
Hernandez has failed to settle in east London since his £16million move from Bayer Leverkusen last summer but has still managed to register four goals in 21 appearances.
However, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward has not found the back of the net since his goal in 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace in October.
Football Insider verdict:
Only last week Hammers boss Moyes expressed his desire to keep hold of all of his players, that he did not want any of them to leave, but would be keen on making additions to his side. There is little chance of this deal going through, and particularly not as a loan. Having said that, the forward has looked a frustrated figure at times and having gone on a run of nine matches without registering, the Mexican might be thinking that his future lies elsewhere.
