West Ham striker in talks with Besiktas

According to talkSPORT, West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez is in talk with Turkish club Besiktas about a possible transfer.

Hernandez only joined the Hammers last July in a £16 million transfer from Bayer Leverkusen, but has struggled for form and goals, and has not netted since scoring against Crystal Palace at the end of October.

Since then he has struggled and has not often featured for the starting eleven under David Moyes, with Marko Arnautovic leading the line most often.

Besiktas are looking for a replacement for Cenk Tosun who they recently sold to Everton in a £25 million deal, and believe that Hernandez, who has 49 goals in 99 appearances for Mexico, could be the answer to their problems.

There have also been rumours about Hernandez moving to Old Trafford and a return to Manchester United where he spent 4 years as a player after joining from Mexican club Guadalajara in July 2010.
