Sevilla boss Unai Emery has revealed his La Liga side have Javier Hernandez on their list of candidates to fill the gap left by the departure of Carlos Bacca to Milan.

The Spanish outfit are looking for a goalscorer after being forced to part ways with the Colombia international, who had his full €30m (£21.5m) release clause met by the Serie A sleeping giants.

The Europa League winners have been credited for their transfer business in recent seasons, coping with the departure of players like Dani Alves, Alvaro Negredo, Jesus Navas, Luis Fabiano and Ivan Rakitic by signing replacements who have also sparkled.

Emery has admitted that it will be had to replace Bacca, who scored 20 La Liga goals last season. However, he says that the current transfer market offers a number of potential players to fill the role, including Chicharito, Borussia Dormund's Ciro Immobile and Juventus's Fernando Llorente.

"Bacca's move to Milan is a great economic boost for Sevilla. Now we have to find another Bacca, with a different name but similar skills. It is not easy, but there are opportunities like Chicharito, Immobile and other players that we are considering. It is important they have the desire, no matter the age. Llorente is a very good player, but it will not be easy to get him," Emery told local newspaper Estadio Deportivo.

Hernandez's future at Old Trafford continues to be foggy, almost a year after he was sent on loan to Real Madrid after Louis van Gaal saw no role for him at the club.

Sevilla have already looked to the Premier League during the current transfer window, signing Gael Kakuta from Chelsea to replace Barcelona-bound Aleix Vidal. They are also expected to close a deal for Stoke City's Steven Nzonzi very soon.
