West Ham United completed the signing of former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez for a fee of just £16million, which is a bit of a steal. The 29-year-old moved from Bayer Leverkusen to London and his goals to games ratio is certainly right up there.
The Mexican scored 39 goals in 76 games for the Bundesliga side and seems to be in the prime of his life, despite being sold by Manchester United a couple of years ago.
West Ham certainly have snapped one of the bargains of the season and if not anything, Hernandez will provide a decent return up front.
Hernandez might not be the first-team striker at big clubs anymore but he could have provided great cover to any top side in the Premier League and certainly would have done a decent job for us.
Vincent Janssen struggled to score goals last season and we need cover for Harry Kane. We were lucky to escape this, given the quality of Harry. However, Pochettino seems ready to give another chance for Janssen and stick with him rather than sell him.
Some Tottenham fans weren’t exactly pleased that we couldn’t seal the deal for the 29-year-old Hernandez while others were happy we missed out on the striker.

Surely Spurs should of gone in for Hernandez as back up for Kane?

If we had wanted Javier Hernandez, we would’ve stolen him easily. But why are we being so picky with our transfers?
