The Daily Mail says Chicharito is emerging as a January target for the Gunners.
The Gunners have discussed a shock move for the Mexican, as fears grow over Olivier Giroud's workload.
Arsene Wenger knows he is drastically short of striking options, with Giroud his only recognised centre-forward.
Arsenal will try to sign a new striker in January, and a move for Hernandez is viewed as a realistic option by the north London club given the 25-year-old's lack of game time at Old Trafford.
