West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez Chicharito is on the verge of becoming Sevilla’s deadline-day signing, according to the latest reports from England
After the arrival of Sebastian Haller, the 31-year-old has tumbled down Manuel Pellegrini’s pecking order, making just one Premier League start this term.
Frustrated with a lack of game time, the Mexican forward handed in a transfer request on Friday and is now close to joining Sevilla.

According to BBC, the former Manchester United star has already departed for Spain to undergo medical ahead of his £7.24m move to the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
The fact that he has less than a year left on his contract has made it easier for the Andalusians to persuade the Hammers to sanction the transfer.
A brief spell at Real Madrid in 2014/15 gave Chicharito an insight into the La Liga style of football, and it could be useful to his new adventure in the Spanish top tier.
