Tottenham are still keen on signing Javier Hernandez and could make a move to sign him from Manchester United this week, according to the Daily Mail.

The Mexican has fallen well down the pecking order at Old Trafford and appears destined to be on the move this summer. Juventus are keen on securing his services but he is also generating interest from within the Premier League.


Hernandez has a reputation as a fine goal scorer but struggled badly last season, starting just six league games for Manchester United while managing just four goals.

Southampton want him and are willing to pay the £15 million asking price, while the Daily Mail now say that Tottenham could revive their interest in him this week.

Tottenham keen?

Hernandez isn't believed to be keen on going to Southampton and would prefer to leave Manchester United for a bigger club - and Tottenham could fit the bill.

They can currently call upon Emmanuel Adebayor, Chrstian Eriksen and Harry Kane to lead the line. However there are doubts about whether Soldado will still be at White Hart Lane come the end of the transfer window, with Atletico Madrid said to be keen.

If the Spaniard does leave then Spurs will certainly swoop for a replacement, with Hernandez and Swansea's Wilfried Bony seemingly the leading candidates.

Manchester United options

Manchester United have been linked with both Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani, but it is debatable whether they will move to bag a replacement if Hernandez does leave, given that they can call upon Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck, as well as a host of youngsters.

The Red Devils are expected to be busy in the transfer window before it slams shut, with landing defenders their priority as it stands.
