Manchester United have finally sealed the transfer of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving the other way, but the move could also affect West Ham.
The Telegraph reported early this month that the Red Devils had the trio of Sanchez, Leicester’s Jamie Vardy and Hammers’ Javier Hernandez on their transfer radar as striking options to backup Romelu Lukaku.
With a deal for the Chilean now wrapped up by United, Turkish giants Besiktas have been boosted in their pursuit of Hernandez.
As per Turkish-Football, replacing Cenk Tosun, who recently left for Everton, is top priority for Besiktas, and they want the Mexican international, with club officials already in east London to enter into talks with West Ham.
Hernandez has lost his starting berth at the London Stadium, with manager David Moyes preferring to use Marko Arnautovic as his target man.
The Super Lig champions are offering the Mexican a guaranteed starting shirt and Champions League football, and a move will likely be wrapped up if they meet West Ham’s asking price for the 29-year-old who arrived for £16million last summer.
