West Ham United have pulled out of the race to sign Manchester United’s out-of-favour striker Javier Hernandez.
The Mirror reports that the Hammers were unwilling to match the Mexican international’s steep wage demands.
The report states that Bayer Leverkusen and Tottenham are also in a race to sign the Mexico international.
Hernandez spent last season on loan at La Liga giants Real Madrid after falling out of favour with Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal.
Hernandez provided nine assists and scored nine goals in 33 appearances for Real Madrid last season.
The 27-year-old scored 40 goals in 74 international appearances for the Mexican national side.
