Javier Hernandez could be heading back to the Premier League - although Manchester United fans shouldn’t get too excited. In fact, they should be pretty concerned.

According to The Times, the Mexican striker has been identified by Liverpool as one of their priority summer targets.

Jurgen Klopp is planning to overhaul his attack at the end of the season and Chicharito, who joined Bayer Leverkusen in a £7.3 million deal from the Red Devils last summer, has emerged as a realistic transfer target. He could cost the Reds in excess of £20 million.

This is not the first time that Liverpool have shown interest in securing Hernandez’s services.

Back in 2014, the live-wire striker rejected a move to Anfield in favour of a season-long loan at Real Madrid, acutely aware of the hostility that exists between the Merseyside outfit and Manchester United.

Hernandez happy at Bayer Leverkusen

Hernandez will feel a great deal of gratitude towards Leverkusen after the German club provided him with the platform to resurrect his career.

The 27-year-old has scored a magnificent 19 goals in 23 appearances for the Bundesliga side this season, making Louis van Gaal’s decision to sell the forward look more foolish by the week.

Affiliation with Man Utd and their fans

Hernandez knows he still has complete respect from the Manchester United fans, however, and this may make any future decision to join the Premier League giants’ fiercest rivals virtually impossible.

But part of Hernandez might be tempted by the chance to prove his critics - Van Gaal included - wrong by returning to the Premier League.
