‘He’s 33 And Past It’ ‘He’s Actually Good’ West Ham Fans On Social Media Debate Hernandez’s Potential Replacement

West Ham have been linked with a move for Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic in the January transfer window, after the 33-year-old was omitted from Juve’s Champions League squad.

The Hammers are likely to be looking for a replacement for Javier Hernandez and the Croatian international could well fit the bill if he is available. Some fans on Twitter have questioned whether the forward is suitable:

While other supporters are keen to bring in Mandzukic:

The Croatian certainly has a great deal of experience after having played for Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and Juventus, but it must be said that he will have a number of other potential suitors in January.

With West Ham likely only able to offer game time off the bench, Mandzukic may look at other offers where he will be guaranteed first-team football.

Still, Hernandez’s departure has left manager Manuel Pellegrini light of options upfront, and it’s probable that the club will pursue a new striker when the window reopens.
