West Ham step up pursuit of Man Utd striker Chicharito

West Ham United are set to make an improved offer for Manchester United's Javier Hernandez.

The Daily Express suggests that the Hammers will table a new bid of £11.9million in order to lure the Mexican striker to east London after their proposal of £6m went untouched last week.

Slaven Bilic has a striker shortage on his hands following injuries to Enner Valencia and Andy Carroll and is desperate to attract a quality player to Upton Park as he embarks on a possible Europa League campaign.

United are set to sign Pedro from Barcelona, which will further knock Chicharito down the pecking order, indicating the Hammers may be able to get their man now they have reassess their valuation of the 27-year-old who spent last season on loan at Real Madrid.
