Bayer Leverkusen forward Javier Hernandez has hinted he could be set for a summer move to Arsenal by saying “you never know what can happen in football” when questioned about the link.
The former Manchester United striker has scored 19 goals in 24 games since joining the Bundesliga outfit from Manchester United last summer.
Louis van Gaal has been heavily criticised for allowing the striker to leave, while his form for Leverkusen has seen him strongly linked with a move to Arsenal.
A move to Emirates Stadium is impossible in January given the Mexican has already played for both United and Leverkusen this season, but the striker has dropped a massive hint that a summer move back to the Premier League could be on.
“We’ll see you never know what happens,” said Hernandez.
“I’m glad and happy to be part of this great club. In this sport, it does not matter whether you sign a contract for 10 years or 10 times prolong by one year. In six months, everything can again be different.
“You look at my last three years in which I have played for Real Madrid, Manchester United and now Leverkusen. It is my goal now to play a very good second half.”
