Revealed: 62% of West Ham fans would sign Javier Hernandez over Olivier Giroud

The talk of the town in east London at the moment is centred around one subject – which striker West Ham will sign before the end of the transfer window.

Co-owner David Gold admitted to talkSPORT at the end of last month that acquiring more firepower will be the club’s priority this summer following injury-stricken campaigns from Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho, that saw the Hammers net the ninth-fewest goals of any Premier League side last season.

Plenty of options have been mooted in the media, not least including Arsenal front-man Olivier Giroud and former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez – courtesy of recent reports from The Telegraph.


The France international netted 16 times across all competitions last season, whilst his Mexican counter-part – who Transfermarkt value at £15.3million – bagged 13 for current employers Bayer Leverkusen, demonstrating how both front-men would add much-needed goals to the Irons’ attack.

But it’s unlikely West Ham will go on to sign both in the same transfer window, so we asked supporters earlier this week who they’d rather sign. According to our poll, the majority of Hammers fans – 62% – would prefer to see Hernandez leading the line at the London Stadium next season.
