Sevilla have strengthened their attack with the addition of Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez from West Ham, the Spanish club announced on Monday.

The Mexico international underwent a medical before signing a three-year contract with Sevilla to become the club’s 12th summer acquisition.

“Sevilla FC and West Ham United FC have reached an agreement for the arrival of Javier Hernandez Balcazar, known as Chicharito,” a Sevilla statement said.

“Chicharito arrives in Nervion with the clear intention of fighting for a place in Sevilla’s attack.”

Sources told ESPN FC the transfer is worth €8 million.

The former Manchester United forward, who still had 10 months remaining on his contract with West Ham, had fallen down the pecking order following the arrival of Sebastien Haller and Albian Ajeti.

He handed in a transfer request last week and arrived in Seville on Sunday.

Chicharito returns to La Liga, having previously played for Real Madrid on loan from United in the 2014-15 campaign.

He joined West Ham from Bayer Leverkusen in July 2017 in a £16m transfer and scored 17 goals in 63 club appearances since.

Mexico’s all-time top scorer with 51 goals in 108 games, Chicharito will travel to the United States in the next 24 hours to join his national team ahead of the upcoming international friendlies against the U.S. and Argentina.
