Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is being linked with a shock summer move to Tottenham Hotspur.
The Daily Mail claims Mauricio Pochettino is looking to strengthen in attack for the new season, and has set his sights on the Mexican hitman following his season away from Old Trafford on loan.
Hernandez spent the 2014/15 campaign with Real Madrid, scoring nine goals in 33 appearances in all competitions, but has returned to Manchester United this summer with a view to regaining his spot amongst the first team.

Without a central striker signing thus far and the exits of Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie, the chances of the former Guadalajara starlet featuring once again for the Red Devils this season has greatly improved.
However, he's still behind captain Wayne Rooney, whilst young striker James Wilson also enjoyed a decent spell in the Manchester United side last term, appearing 17 times in all competitions. New signing Memphis Depay has also hinted that he could play through the middle, although he's more recognised as a winger.
Add in the fact that manager Louis van Gaal recently revealed a 'surprise' striker signing could still be on the cards for the Red Devils this summer, and that optimism quickly begins to dissipate for Chicharito.
Spurs, meanwhile, are searching for someone to partner Harry Kane up-front, with Roberto Soldado failing to impress in the Premier League and Emmanuel Adebayor constantly struggling for consistency. Both have been linked with moves away.
West Brom forward Saido Berahino is another name in the frame for the Tottenham Hotspur boss, who is also planning to keep Moussa Dembele in north London despite his lack of regular involvement last term.
Deal makes sense
Wages and a fee will still need to be discussed and agreed if Manchester United are to let the player leave before the start of September, but a deal makes sense for all parties involved and would keep 'the little pea' in the Premier League for another season at least.
