West Ham United fans are concerned that they could be left short up front after Javier Hernandez’s sale to Sevilla.
The club confirmed on Twitter on Monday that they had reached an agreement with the Spanish club for the sale of the Mexico international.

It means that Manuel Pellegrini is left with summer signings Sebastian Haller and Albian Ajeti as his only out-and-out forwards.
With the season in full swing, and the British transfer window closed, the Hammers do not have an opportunity to buy a replacement.
Haller, of course, has enjoyed an excellent start to life at the London Stadium, scoring three goals in his last two games. Ajeti, though, has yet to make his Premier League debut for the club.
And supporters are somewhat worried about the lack of numbers up top following Chicharito’s surprising exit on Monday.
Take a look at the best of the reaction on Twitter below!
You better hope Haller doesn’t die

Better pray Haller stays fit now.

Let’s just hope Haller stays fit!!! Maybe bring back Hugill so he can run in the bubbles!!!
This is the #westhamway

Pleased he scored in his last ever appearance for us.. Never quite suited the system we now play.
Good Deal for a player who will be 32 this season.
A slight risk with our shortage of Strikers with MA30 injured but we have a lot of strength in depth in this squad…

This never really took off did it. Still gutted though, think this leaves us with not many options up front

Good business there. Only two first team strikers ??

Bad timing. Needed a replacement we are spread thin up top now with only Haller & Ajeti

Where is our backup if haller gets injured. Are we going to load anyone.
