Wenger is thinking about going in for Javier Hernandez. Lacazette less likely today. Tour delaying things though. #Arsenal #afc

28-year-old Mexican moved to Leverkusen over the summer and has proven his critics wrong by scoring 26 goals in 40 games.
Popularly called his native nickname Chicharito, his impact in Manchester United can never go unnoticed as he scored top notch goals before he was been loaned to Real Madrid and then sold to Leverkusen.
In my own opinion, Wenger should go all out in signing him since Lacasette deal to Arsenal now seems likely to happen although I don’t see him as a striker that will put us all there but then we need a striker to give competition to Olivier Giroud upfront.
However, If Hernandez should complete the move he would be a good addition to the squad and his shot accuracy currently average 55% in the Bundesliga last season.
