West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez is on the verge of completing a move to Sevilla, after handing in a transfer request to try force through a move away from the club.
As soon as the 2018/19 season came to a close, Hernandez found himself linked with a transfer away from London, and the expensive arrival of Sebastien Haller has only pushed him further down the pecking order at the London Stadium.
He has not been involved in West Ham's last two league games, with talk of a move to Sevilla gathering pace.
According to Sky Sports, the two clubs have now agreed a fee after some negotiation. While the price tag is as yet unknown, previous reports claimed West Ham were looking for around £8m.
The 31-year-old, who has one year remaining on his current contract, actually arrived in Seville on Friday to negotiate personal terms and is now believed to be on the verge of completing his move to the Andalusian capital.
The Mexican striker has accepted that game time will be hard to come by, with Haller impressing following his £45m move from Eintracht Frankfurt earlier in the summer.

Sevilla recently lost Wissam Ben Yedder to Monaco, and whilst they have already added both Luuk de Jong and Munas Dabbur to their ranks, completing a cut-price deal for Hernandez would only help improve their depth in attack.
Hernandez will be the club's 12th signing of the summer under the return of sporting director Monchi.
