Tottenham Hotspur have enquired about the availability of Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez, according to the Daily Mirror.
Manchester United are believed to be looking in the region of £15 million for the Mexican forward. Spurs, however, are reportedly looking at nearer the £8 million mark.
Hernandez, who cannot get into the Manchester United first team at present, could make the switch to White Hart Lane with Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas needing a back-up finisher to Roberto Soldado. Hernandez is a player who can find the net on a regular basis and this could solve the issue with strikers that Spurs have at the moment. Once you get past Spaniard Soldado, they don't seem to have many good options up front.
Spurs will surely need to get rid of one of their strikers if they wish to bring the Mexican in. This would most likely see the end for Emmanuel Adebayor as Spurs look to offload the striker to another club. Jermain Defoe is also in the firing line as interest builds around the forward. If Defoe were to leave, then Hernandez would be more than suitable replacement.
However, despite rumours surrounding Defoe's potential exit from North London, Villas-Boas insists he expects to keep the England striker beyond the end of the transfer window.
"Will he be here next week? Yes, I think so," the Portuguese said.
