Javier Hernandez has praised Manchester United's striking power, as the club are connected to a purchase for Demba Ba in the January transfer window.

Ba's agency claimed exclusively to the IBTimes yesterday that Sir Alex Ferguson had shown interest in paying his exit clause, but was yet to make an official bid.

But Hernandez believes that United already have a great deal of support up front, with the club currently boasting both experience and youth in their squad as they aim to challenge for a record 20<sup>th title.

"Everyone knows [Dimitar] Berbatov is a brilliant player. His touch and technique are unbelievable," he told the official Manchester United website. "Then you have Wazza [Rooney], who is a world-class player, and Danny Welbeck, who is doing very well this season.

"Kiko [Macheda] has gone out on loan but is another good striker, as is Mame [Biram Diouf]. We are very strong in that department, and in the other positions too."

Hernandez was on fire for United in his first season, scoring 20 goals across all competitions , but has suffered numerous injury setbacks this time around, beginning with a concussion in the Red Devils' pre-season campaign in the USA.

And the 23 year old believes that he can make amends this season and get back to his regular goal scoring ways.

"There are different circumstances because I have had more injuries this season than last year, but I am still enjoying it," he explained. "I am still learning and working hard, trying to improve day by day.

"I think each year it is going to be more difficult. In the first season, not only the defenders but also the coaches didn't know me. I think now, and in the third and fourth seasons, they are going to know me even more.

"But good players like Wayne [Rooney], [Robin] Van Persie and [Didier] Drogba have been here five, six years or more and still play at the same high level. I need to keep working to do the same."

Hernandez has scored six goals so far this season, and is expected to be in the running to start against Bolton this weekend as United keep the pressure on cross-town rivals Manchester City in the Premier League table.

The Red Devils are just one game behind the Citizens at the minute, and while they will be hoping to get past Bolton with three points, Ferguson's squad have a tough couple of games following, with Arsenal at the Emirates and Liverpool at Anfield within a week.
