Tottenham have approached Manchester United for striker Javier Hernandez.

The Mirror says Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is making a shock move for United's Mexican goal machine - but will have to pay £15million.

Big-spending Spurs have approached the Premier League champions about the little striker, who seemingly cannot get close to winning a regular spot in manager David Moyes' No.1 side.

Spurs, characteristically, would like to drive a hard bargain and land Hernandez for around £7m-£8m, but the asking price is double that and will stay that way.

Moyes needs a quick decision on the 25-year-old, as he would have to assess whether he needs an extra striker himself - a squad man happy to make only a handful of appearances - to replace Hernandez.
