West Ham risk making catastrophic mistake with reported summer exit of 45 goal hitman


West Ham are on the verge of making a catastrophic mistake this summer if ESPN suggestions are correct and they sanction the summer exit of Javier Hernandez.

Mexican outfit Chivas are said to be in the running for the player’s signature and are wanting to bring in the hitman to aid their pursuit of December’s World Club Cup competition.

However, Chicharito has scored at important times for the Irons throughout the campaign despite the tricky season the club have endured and is a proven talent in the top flight, with his 131 outings throughout his time in the Premier League resulting in 45 goals for the 29-year-old.

This campaign has not gone to plan for Hernandez either after failing to maintain a place for himself in the first team, despite having scored eight goals neither David Moyes nor Slaven Bilic have entrusted the player with a full role in the side.

Despite that, the forward has continued to find the back of the net, providing important goals at key times to keep the Hammers in with a great chance of staying in the Premier League.

It is these sort of goals, particularly against the likes of Watford, Southampton and Brighton that have kept the club there or thereabouts this season.

If next season goes anything like the way of this then they cannot afford to let go of the Mexican star and he needs to be given a greater role in the side.
