According to both the Guardian and Gazzetta della Sport on Oct. 18th, 2012 both English Premier League giants Arsenal and Italian Serie A side Fiorentina are set to make a move for out of favor striker Javier Hernandez from Manchester United.
The Mexican international made a splash in his first season at Old Trafford during 2010/11 but has since rather fallen off the radar of Sir Alex Ferguson thanks to the likes of Danny Welbeck in 2011/12 and due to the purchase of Robin Van Persie this summer.
Arsenal could be looking at reversing the trend of Manchester based clubs buying up all of their talent, while Fiorentina continue to look for a goal scorer that has the chances of being as prolific as their club legend, Gabriel Batistuta was throughout the last decade of the 20th century.
With Hernandez continuing to prove his class on the international stage with great performances for the Mexican national team, there is no doubt that his talent is still there. His taste for goal has not diminished in the slightest form; he has only been troubled with a lack of opportunity.
Arsenal need a second true striker that can compete with Olivier Giroud for first team action while Fiorentina need a new South American star to spearhead their attack as they search for a means to return to the upper echelon on the Serie A.
