Fiorentina are hoping that the guarantee of first team football will be enough to persuade Javier Hernandez to leave Manchester United at the end of the season.

The Mexico international has started just one Premier League game this season and has slipped further down the pecking order after the arrival of Robin van Persie.

The former Arsenal striker has instantly become first choice under Sir Alex Ferguson and is the preferred partner for Wayne Rooney.

Danny Welbeck, who was handed the opportunity to deputise for Rooney when he was ruled out of action at the start of the season, has started four Premier League games and appeared as a substitute in the other three matches this season.

A report on Italian website has claimed that Fiorentina are willing to make an offer of €10million at the end of the season as they believe Hernandez would like to have the guarantee of regular first team football.

The Viola are concerned that they will be unable to hang on to star striker Steven Jovetic who has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in recent seasons.

Jovetic was the top scorer for Fiorentina last season with 12 league goals, however, recent reports have suggested that he has already agreed a switch to Juventus.

Hernandez may be struggling to force his way into the Manchester United side this season but he has an impressive goal scoring record when handed the opportunity.

He scored 13 goals in his debut season at Old Trafford, before once again hitting double figures in the last campaign as he scored 12 goals in all competitions.

Hernandez also boasts an impressive goal-scoring record for Mexico having found the back of the net on 28 occasions in his 43 appearances. The last of which came in a 2-0 win over El Salvador in a CONCACAF World Cup qualifier.

The 24-year-old only signed a contract extension last season which runs until the summer of 2016, meaning Manchester United would be in a strong position should they decide to part with the striker.
