There is nothing to say that the player was thinking about Arsenal, or any club in particular for that matter, when he made these comments about a possible late move from current club Bayer Leverkusen before the summer transfer window closes in a few weeks, but with the Germans having finished third in the Bundesliga last season to guarantee a place in the Champions League, you would think that there were not many clubs around Europe that would tempt Javier Hernandez into a move.
The Gunners would surely be one of them and I think that the former Manchester United striker is well aware of Arsene Wenger’s (so far) futile search for more fire power. So it is certainly not out of the question that the Mexico international may be hoping for a late move back to the Premier League with Arsenal.
As reported by The Mirror the striker, who enjoyed a fantastic first season with Leverkusen where he once again proved his powers in front of goal with 26 goals from 40 games, spoke this week about his future and suggested that he might be set for another late move, which happened to him when he left United and Real Madrid.
Hernandez said, “You never know what happens in football. In years gone by I have left my club on the last day of the transfer window.
“I thought I would stay in Madrid and I thought I would stay in Manchester but I joined Leverkusen in the end.
“It motivates me if I am a theme for other clubs.”
At the minute it is the Lyon and France star Alexandre Lacazette who seems to be favourite for a move to north London in the Arsenal transfer rumours, but if Wenger does fail to land him do you think that Chicharito could be on the cards for a late transfer to Arsenal?
