Hammers Deal for Hernandez Moving Closer

Hammers Deal for Hernandez Moving Closer

Slaven Bilic, a couple of days ago, suggested that the signing of a striker was drawing nearer.

Here at Vital West Ham we have an inkling that striker is Javier Hernandez.

Now we`re not taking all the credit for this assumption, admittedly we saw it pop up on the Sky News Sports Feed.

However, there is a small problem to overcome before the deal is signed, sealed and delivered.

According to Sky Sports, Hernandez is set to become a Hammer after the club activated his £13 million release clause in his contract at the Bundesliga club, Bayer Leverkusen.

But, it is also suggested that and here`s the problem, the Mexican wants £140,000 a week in wages.

Our source suggest that West Ham are trying to structure a deal that will see the weekly wage dropped but will also offer more in the way of bonuses and appearance money.

We`ll keep our eyes out in case anything else comes through on the news feed this evening.
