Valencia set their sights on Chicharito loan deal

Valencia set their sights on Chicharito loan deal

According to local Valencia based outlet Levante-EMV, Marcelino has given his approval for Alemany to negotiate a loan move with West Ham.

Valencia have identified Javier 'Chicharito' Hernández as the striker they want to bring to Mestalla in the winter transfer window. According to local Valencia outlet Levante-EMV, first team coach boss Marcelino has given his approval to the loan deal with the Mexican forward also anxious to make a return to LaLiga.

Negotiations are set to commence with London based West Ham and despite the striker securing Premier League playing time under "Hammers" manager Manuel Pellegrini, he's not a guarantee in the West Ham starting XI which has prompted the Mexican to look for more continued playing time elsewhere.

Valencia do, however need to offload players before making any acquisition with striker Batshuayi being cited as the first player to make a Mestalla exit. The Belgian striker does have many interested suitors but was back in Paterna last night as the Valencia squad held their first training session after the Christmas break.
