Hammers star on Valencia radar
Valencia have been linked with a January move for West Ham's Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez but could face competition for the striker.
The Mexico international has struggled to nail down a starting spot at West Ham this season as he has started just seven Premier League matches so far, with seven further outings as a substitute.
It is thought former Manchester United star Chicharito isn't actively pushing for a transfer but could be tempted by a January move and Valencia have now been mooted as potential suitors.
Los Che are only planning to move for the 30-year-old if they can cut short Michy Batshuayi's loan stay from Chelsea, although that may not be an issue with Crystal Palace, Roma and AC Milan all said to be keen on the Belgian.
Valencia may face competition from Sevilla and Real Betis for Hernandez, while West Ham will reportedly listen to offers in the region of £18million for the forward.
