Sunday, April 15, 2018
The Washington Post say the club are interested in signing the Mexican international in the upcoming transfer window.
Ex-Hammers forward Carlos Tevez, now on the books of Argentine giants Boca Juniors , is also believed to be on DC United’s wishlist.
Hernandez joined West Ham from Bayer Leverkusen last summer in a deal worth Â£16 million.
The 29-year-old has eight goals in 16 league appearances this season, including an equaliser at Stamford Bridge last Sunday, but has struggled for starts under manager David Moyes .
There were reports in January suggesting Moyes was looking to offload Hernandez.
DC United is currently up for sale after Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir put his majority share on the market and new ownership is likely to include Los Angeles billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong.
