‘Chicharito’ netted an impressed 59 goals in 157 games for Manchester United, after joining the Red Devils in 2010.
The striker then moved to the Bundesliga in 2015, scoring a superb haul of 39 goals in 76 games for Leverkusen.
Mexico’s all-time leading scorer with 48 goals, Hernandez now returns to England with the fee of £16m looking like very good business for West Ham, considering the player is still under 30.
Together with Joe Hart and Marko Arnautovic, the ‘Little Pea’ will seriously strengthen a Hammers’ side looking to improved on a mediocre 2016/17 campaign.
