Newcastle United dominated the Championship last season with their impressive goalscoring antics.
Rafael Benitez’s team finished at the top of the standings thanks to a goal haul of 85.
This season in the Premier League, though, it has been a different story as the team have netted just 20 top-flight goals so far.
With the January transfer window in full flow, rumours are circulating about possible new arrivals at St James’ Park.
A recent report by Sky Sports has claimed that West Ham United are willing to sell Javier Hernandez, who moved to the London Stadium from Bayer Leverkusen just last summer.
The Mexico international was built up to be a huge signing for the Hammers, but he has so far struggled to make his mark having netted just four goals.
It is believed that manager David Moyes is prepared to offload Hernandez, whose last stint in England was a five-year spell at Old Trafford.
With Newcastle lacking firepower, the fans have taken to Twitter to urge the club to make a move for the West Ham forward.
Some believe that the midfielder Jonjo Shelvey could be included in the deal.
Please for the love of god sign Hernandez. Dont miss out on him twice in one season. #nufc

Won't be surprised Hernandez and Shelvey will be involved in some discussion between West Ham & #nufc

Should we take another look at Hernandez 🤔 #Nufc

Surely it's time for #nufc to go back for Javier Hernandez now he's available? He would get us more goals! Along with a tall striker to work with him he would be ideal! Would it happen @alanshearer @lee_ryder @PeteGravesSky ?? Get you boots back on Alan!!

Evidently, Javier Hernandez splits opinion. Fair enough. Personally, I'd have him in a heartbeat. The fact #NUFC aren't even being mentioned in the mix of suitors, though, is embarrassing. I refer you all to my evergreen Ashley is awful tweet.

Why go for Sakho when they've just announced Hernandez is available?! Unfortunately I know it's because Ashley won't sign off on bringing him in due to wages (words can't describe how much I hate that Ashley) however I still think he can be great in a Rafa Benitez team! #NUFC
