A host of Premier League big-hitters are embroiled in multi-club squabble over Manchester United frontman Javier Hernandez.
It’s emerged Real Madrid, where the Mexican is currently on loan, won’t be making his stay at the Bernabeu a permanent one, which has sparked excitement amongst several suitors in England.
West Ham are believed to keen on Chicharito’s services, with Everton and Stoke also interested.
However, it’s Tottenham who’ll represent the most attractive proposition to the 26-year-old.
The Lilywhites are an enormous 14/1 to sign the Man Utd man and with the north Londoners sure to be in the market for a striker this summer, it rates as a decent wager.

It’s alleged he’ll cost just £8m, which represents fantastic value given the former Guadalajara star’s goal record.
In each of his first three seasons at Old Trafford, the Little Pea bagged successive double-digit hauls, with a highly commendable 20 across all competitions coming in his first campaign in English football.
He fired 18 in total during his third season, contributing to numbers of 59 in 154 appearances during his Man Utd tenure to date, a rate of one net rustle every 2.6 outings.
These laudable figures are enhanced all the more when the fact that the bulk of these goals came from substitute appearances is taken into consideration.
A position on the periphery of the Real Madrid fringes hasn’t stopped the on-loan sharpshooter registering impressive stats in Spain either.
Owing to the world-beating riches available to Los Blancos, Hernandez has been afforded just 211 minutes of La Liga action thus far.
This hasn’t prevented Chicharito showcasing his immense quality, with three strikes and one assist recorded to date, equating to direct involvement in one goal every 53 minutes on the field.
These are stats most clubs would crave from their attackers and with Harry Kane the only reliable net rustling threat in the Spurs ranks they’ll need someone to share the workload if they are to maintain their challenge to the Premier League’s fattest cats.
A poacher with the track record and experience of English football that suggests he could be the deadly marksman one-time Lilywhites record-signing Roberto Soldado is yet to become at White Hart Lane, Mauricio Pochettino’s men can’t afford to miss out on Hernandez.
