Sunderland are moving for Palermo striker Abel Hernandez.

Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio is ready to pounce for the Uruguay international centre-forward following Palermo's relegation last season.

TMW says Hernandez's agent, Pablo Bentancur, is flying to Italy for talks with Palermo directors about the player's situation.

Parma also keen, but Sunderland boast the spending power to tempt Hernandez and Bentancur to England this summer.
