Why Javier Hernandez is a good signing for West Ham

Yesterday West Ham completed the signing of Javier Hernandez from Bayer Leverkusen.

The Mexican international has joined West Ham for a fee thought to be worth in the region of £16 Million (Source: Evening Standard).

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward has secured a move back to the Premier League following his departure from United back in Summer 2015. Chicharito joins the likes of Joe Hart, Marko Arnautović and Pablo Zabaleta who have joined the London club during the past few weeks. To the neutral fan, it seems that Slaven Bilić is assembling an exciting team together who must be having Europa League ambitions.

In the audio piece above I go onto discuss why I feel Hernandez is a really good signing for the Hammers. One of many reasons being that he is already a proven Premier League goal scorer. At United, he managed to score a total of 59 goals and contribute 20 assists from 158 appearances.

One thing that is for certain is that he certainly adds some quality and depth to the West Ham front line. I’m sure fans and neutrals alike will be chomping at the bit to see Chicharito try to work his magic again in the Premier League.

    No doubt this is a excellent signing for WHU. Not have this type of striker since Tony Cot. COYI.
