West Ham Ace ‘Hands In Transfer Request’ To Force Through £8m Move

West Ham striker Javier Hernandez has handed in a transfer request as he looks to seal a move to Sevilla, according to the Daily Mail.

The Mexican international is keen on sealing a switch to the Spanish club before the transfer window closes on Monday. The Hammers have received a £7m offer for the 31-year-old but they are holding out for £8m.

Hernandez only has ten months remaining on his deal at the London Stadium so he could sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club in January.



With that being the case, West Ham will likely offload the Mexican in order to recoup as much of the £16m they paid Bayer Leverkusen for the striker two years ago.

It will, however, leave manager Manuel Pellegrini short of options upfront. Sebastien Haller an Albian Ajeti will be the club’s two main strikers, with the only other alternative, Michail Antonio, likely to be out for a while with a hamstring injury.
