If this is to be confirmed, it marks a grand day in the transfer window for West Ham, who just today announced Joe Hart on a season-long loan, and have also reportedly agreed to a fee with Stoke City for left winger Marko Arnautovic. The club also reportedly agreed to a fee for Keita Baldé Diao today. As for the club actually signing all of these reported deals remains to be seen.
Looks like West Ham have got Arnautovic + are close on Javier Hernandez. Big day for the club with Hart also signing. More on @TeleFootball— Jason Burt (@JBurtTelegraph) July 18, 2017
One thing is for sure: this is one of the most exciting days that West Ham has had in a summer transfer window in a long, long time.

The signing of Javier Hernandez would be something that the club has been looking to do for two summers now. This would be the signing that would make a decent summer transfer window a fantastic one.
Even after Hernandez could potentially sign, it seems that the board is not done yet — with rumors of signing Burnley’s wantaway striker Andre Gray alongside the Mexican international still alive and well.
