Cape Town - West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez has asked his agent to find
him a new club that really needs his services.
Chicharito has played
18 Premier League games, scoring five goals this season, while also featuring
in three League Cup tie and one FA Cup match.
The 29-year-old former
Guadalajara, Manchester United, Real Madrid loanee and Bayer Leverkusen forward
also netted the equaliser for the Hammers in their 1-1 draw with Bournemouth on
Saturday, having come off the bench nine minutes earlier.
But he has now asked
to leave the club during the current transfer window, amid a reported flurry of
Hernandez, as quoted by Sky as saying: "There are a number of clubs
interested in his services, he’s a player everyone knows and is incredibly
focus is a club in which [Chicharito] can play the most games possible. That’s
the most important."
He added: "Javier
has asked personally for it. He’s commented, stated and demanded that we look
for a club that really needs a player with his characteristics because what he
wants is to play and play and play.”
However, with reported
recent injuries to Manuel Lanzini and Andy Carroll, West Ham boss David Moyes
may be able to placate the Mexican by handing him more game-time.
