Javier Hernandez Officially Completes Moves To West Ham

English football club West Ham United has announced the signing of Mexican international striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez from Bayer Leverkusen on Monday, adding a star player in attack which the Hammers have needed for quite some time.
Last season the team's highest goal scorer was winger Michael Antonio with nine, and the year before that was midfielder Dimitri Payet with 12.
In fact the Hammers haven't had a striker score 15 goals in a season since Carlton Cole in 2011-12, so getting someone of Hernandez's caliber was a must.
“I am very happy to join West Ham United,” he told West Ham official website.

“For me, the Premier League is the best league in the world and when the opportunity came, I was desperate to sign for this club.

“It was not a difficult decision. West Ham is an historic club, and very ambitious – this summer you can see with the players signed that they are looking to have a very good season.
West Ham have made Javier Hernandez their top-earner after confirming his £16m signing 

“I’ve had three fantastic years playing in Spain and Germany, but England was really the first big chapter in my career and I am so happy to be back.

“I am desperate for the season to start and to help the team achieve all their objectives.” 
Joint-Chairman David Sullivan added: “We are delighted to welcome Javier as the latest fantastic addition to the West Ham United squad.
“Following the arrivals of Pablo Zabaleta, Joe Hart and Marko Arnautovic, he is another top class professional who brings great experience and quality to the Club.
Hernandez will now fly out to Germany to meet up with Slaven Bilic and his new team-mates 

“He has a proven goalscoring record in the Premier League, La Liga and the Bundesliga, as well in the UEFA Champions League and at international level with Mexico.

“We now have some fantastic options in attacking positions and, like all West Ham fans, I am looking forward to seeing Javier score goals in a claret and blue shirt next season.”
