Spurs are believed to be looking to sign the 25-year-old for around £8 million but Manchester United are expected to hold firm with a valuation of around £15 million.
As the summer issues around Wayne Rooney’s future at United look to have been settled and he is believed to be remaining at Old Trafford, Chicharito has cast a lonely shadow as the fourth striker in the pecking order behind Robin Van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Rooney.
With the World Cup coming up next summer and the Mexican national team on the brink of qualification for Brazil in 2014, Hernandez is certain to be desperate for more first team action and a move to North London could see him given just that type of chance.
Jermaine Defoe is believed to be on the market for Spurs and while Roberto Soldado is certainly the first choice for the moment; the type of weapon that Hernandez can be as a partnering striker or off the bench is immense.
The Mexican striker has scored 50 goals in 117 appearances for United since his arrival in 2010 and his impressive return of 18 last year still looks not enough to earn him a place with regular football.
Manchester United will have to make a quick decision as to whether to sell the player as he is obviously unhappy with limited playing time during a World Cup year, but also because David Moyes would then have to enter the market himself in the late stages to secure a squad rotation replacement for the departing North American.
