Spurs keen on Javier Hernandez.
Tottenham are on red alert after Javier Hernandez admitted he may have to leave Manchester United, reports The Daily Mirror.
Hernandez has started just two of David Moyes’ 11 matches in charge and admitted last week that he wants more playing time ahead of Mexico’s potential participation in next summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
Spurs, who were linked with the 25-year-old in the summer, are tracking Hernandez, as boss Andre Villas-Boas looks to strengthen his striking options in January.
Roberto Soldado has scored just twice – both from the penalty spot – in six league games since his £26m summer move from Valencia, while Jermain Defoe struggled in his first league start of the season against West Ham last weekend.
United would be reluctant to sell Hernandez, nicknamed Chicharito, to a Premier League rival but Spurs are still likely to move for the poacher if he continues to sit on the Red Devils’ bench, although Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid are also thought to be keen on the player.
