Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has put Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez at the top of his transfer list as he aims to lure in better class players, according to Daily Star.
Club owner Randy Lerner is said to be open to injecting Villa with a much needed transfer booster after two years of keeping a tight lid on the team’s financial status.
Lambert believes that for his side to compete next season, he will need to have the funds in order to lure big name players to join the squad and out of favour United striker Hernandez could be one to make the switch.
The Mexican is a great scorer and his recent frustration due to lack playing time is attracting the attention from a majority of clubs such as Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, and Tottenham, all in which Lambert will need to compete with in order to acquire his services.
Nicknamed Chicharito, the striker had scored 20 goals in his first season with the Red Devils, but with the recent acquisition of Robin van Persie, his playing time has become very limited.
The Manchester club looks set to let the player leave should an offer arrive as the 25-year-old is not keeping quiet on his desire to play regular first team football.
