Man Utd striker Chicharito on Sevilla radar

Javier Hernandez is a transfer target for Spanish club Sevilla.

According to reports, the Europa League winners are after the Manchester United striker who is seen as a replacement for Carlos Bacca who recently joined AC Milan on a £20million deal.

Sevilla boss Unai Emery spoke to Spanish newspaper Estadio Deportivo regarding his summer strike targets and highlighted Mexico international Chicharito along with Borussia Dortmund's Ciro Immobile and Juventus ace Fernando Llorente who is being heavily linked with Tottenham.

Emery said: "Bacca's move to Milan is a great economic boost for Sevilla. Now we have to find another Bacca, with a different name but similar skills.

"It is not easy, but there are opportunities like Chicharito, Immobile and other players that we are considering.

"It is important they have the desire, no matter the age. Llorente is a very good player, but it will not be easy to get him."
