Arsenal Transfer Rumors: Arsenal Targeting Manchester United Striker Javier Hernandez

Emirates Stadium stand by to express interest in the Old Trafford forward. Arsenal are reportedly considering registering their curiosity in the Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez. The Mexican international has struggled to force his way into the Old Trafford side's starting eleven on a regular basis for the most part of 18 months and the arrival of Robin Van Persie has further limited his involvement in Sir Alex Ferguson's first team set-up. 

The 24-year-old Guadalajara born forward had an excellent first season at Manchester United, exceeding even Sir Ferguson's expectations, scoring 20 goals in all competitions to help his side to a Premier League title but last term, things did not work out quite so well. Hernandez also struggled for form and found himself out of Ferguson's plans for much of the campaign and has failed to sufficiently impress the Scot and has, as a result, slipped down the order, behind Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney as well as younster Danny Welbeck.

Arsene Wenger has been linked with interest in a number of forwards in recent weeks and there certainly is a need to reinforce the Gunners strike force as currently the Arsenal boss has only signed Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud to fill the role. A lot would, of course, depend on whether Ferguson would be willing to consider offers for Javier Hernandez, especially from a Premier League rival but it may be a move that the United striker would consider in order to prevent his career from falling on the Old Trafford bench.

Hernandez has started just one of Manchester United's seven Premier League excursions this term and seems no way to forcing himself to be glad given the good form shown by those ahead of him in the attacking queue.

Ferguson's side have scored more goals than any other Premier League side this season, which would appear to suggest that he can manage just fine without Hernandez.
