Fiorentina ask for Chicharito

Fiorentina want an experienced striker, so are eyeing up Chicharito Hernandez of West Ham or Boca Juniors forward Dario Benedetto.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Vincenzo Montella believes Giovanni Simeone would benefit from a more mature strike partner.

The names on the list include 29-year-old Benedetto of Boca Juniors, although he has also been linked with Olympique Marseille.

A very intriguing option would be Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez, whose contract with West Ham United is due to expire at the end of the season.

Now 31 years old, the Mexico international could try a new experience in Serie A after Manchester United, Real Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen and since 2017 West Ham.
