Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to urge the club to sign West Ham striker Javier Hernandez.

Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solkehol reported on his personal Twitter account on Thursday that the Hammers are willing to listen to offers for Hernandez, 29, even though he was only signed in the summer from Bayer Leverkusen.

Hernandez has struggled to hold down a regular first-team place since David Moyes came in to replace Slaven Bilic at the London Stadium, even though he was snapped up for £16million.

The Mexico international goal machine has made 21 appearances across all competitions for West Ham, scoring four goals in the process, however he is yet to find the net since October.

Newcastle fans are now hoping that Rafa Benitez can work out a deal to sign the former Manchester United and Real Madrid poacher in a bid to find an improvement on the current striker options at St. James’ Park.

One fan even even ‘dared’ owner Mike Ashley to go out an get the Mexican striker.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Hernandez has been in the goals throughout his career, especially at international level where he has 49 in 99 caps for Mexico.

Although this season may not have been his best so far, it seems that the ex-Man United ace has difficulties in working with Moyes.

In other Newcastle United news, the Magpies are second favourites to sign this international flyer available on a cut-price deal this month.
