West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez is a target for D.C. United, according to reports.
The 31-year-old joined the Hammers in 2017 and has scored 17 times for the club, including one in the 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion last Saturday.
However, there has been uncertainty around the Mexican’s future at the London Stadium all summer and now Football Insider report that DC United are eyeing a move for the frontman.
The MLS side are on the lookout for a replacement for Wayne Rooney who will join Championship side Derby County as a player-coach in January.
And it’s claimed that the American outfit will offer the Irons hitman, who was Rooney’s strike partner at Manchester United, a huge contract as they aim to fill the void that will be left by the ex-England captain.
Hernandez is thought to be on £140,000 per week at West Ham but is in the final year of his deal meaning D.C. United could land him for a cut-price fee.
