Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, commonly known as Chicharito has officially joined West Ham United.

The Mexican, who last player for Bundesliga up-and-comers Bayer Leverkusen was unveiled by the Hammers on Monday 25 July evening after the English side successfully negotiated a £16m move with the German club over the past few weeks.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic was in the market for a skilled finisher to enable his team break into the top 10 of the ultra-competitive Premier League, and the tactician can now rest easy having acquired marksman capable of scoring over 20 goals a season.

Chicharito, who was admittedly keen on making a return to the Premier League, effectively becomes West Ham’s highest paid player after agreeing to a three-year, £140,000-a-week deal. The 29-year-old joins the likes of former Manchester City goalie Joe Hart in Bilic’s new-look squad.
