When West Ham signed Javier Hernandez in the summer, many football fans were shocked.

The Mexican - who had previously had spells at Manchester United and a loan at Real Madrid - was joining West Ham on the back of two very successful seasons at Bayer Leverkusen where he scored 39 goals in 76 appearances.

And after spending £16 million on him, some thought West Ham had just pulled off the signing of the season.

But it hasn’t quite worked out that way.

Despite early promise, Chicharito has scored just four goals in 20 appearances for the Hammers and is now set to leave the club six months after joining it.

Of course, given his prolificacy before his move to West Ham, there are still plenty of clubs interesting in snapping up the 29-year-old.

But it seems one club has won the race.

That’s because Goal are reported that Hernandez is closing in on a €8.5 million move to Besiktas.

According to the report, “the Turkish side’s chairman, Fikret Orman is in London and holding advanced talks with West Ham regarding Chicharito.”

It’s believed the striker will earn around €3.5 million-per-year and has been brought in to replace the outgoing Cenk Tosun, who joined Everton recently.

The move will also allow Hernandez to play Champions League football once again.


However, despite winning their group consisting of Porto, RB Leipzig and Monaco, they have been handed a tough last-16 draw against group runners-up Bayern Munich.

How’s your luck?

Hernandez will just be hoping to recover the form he produced in Germany as opposed to what we saw at West Ham.
