Javier Hernandez still on Tottenham Hotspur’s radar for a summer move

by Sam Koster

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is confident he can bring Javier Hernandez to White Hart Lane this summer.

The Evening Standard says the Argentinian wants to ease the goalscoring burden placed on Harry Kane and has his eyes set on one of either Chicharito or Saido Berahino.

Despite Hernandez scoring seven goals in all competitions for Real Madrid last season, Los Blancos decided not to take up their option to buy the Mexican international and he returned to the club after Van Gaal surprised most by giving him another opportunity.

As no new striker has been brought into the club this summer so far, Chicharito became United’s second most senior striker behind Wayne Rooney but does still face an uncertain future.

With United intent on challenging on all fronts this term, the failure to bring in a recognised striker such as Harry Kane or Alexandre Lacazette means that Hernandez may have been granted another opportunity to re-stake his claim for a spot in the starting XI.

However, injuries to Chicharito or Wayne Rooney has the potential to plunge United into a striker crisis which, as we showed last year with defenders, those patches can really effect a season, so Van Gaal has to be confident that situation won’t repeat itself.

What do you think, should United give more opportunities to Hernandez, or invest big money in a player such as Kane or Lacazette?
