Cape Town - Mexican international striker Javier Hernandez is reportedly a top transfer target for Italian club Inter Milan. 

Javier Hernandez, affectionately known as the "Little Pea" in Mexico, is reportedly a target for Inter Milan as they look to rebuild their squad to challenge for Seria A honours once again.

According to the Daily Mail, Hernandez will be the subject of a loan bid by the Italian giants. Should the loan prove successful then the Italians will launch a £10m offer to take the Mexican international to the San Siro on a permanent deal.

Spanish outfit, Valencia, are said to be keeping an eye on this transfer and are ready to pounce should Manchester United be willing to part ways with the striker. Hernandez suffered a frustrating season under David Moyes and was given limited playing time, something which both Inter and Valencia will need to guarantee should he be willing to leave Manchester.

Former Red Devils' captain Nemanja Vidic has already agreed to move to Inter on a free transfer.

Daily Mail also suggests that Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is also on Inter Milan's new owner Erick Thohir's wishlist.
