Arsenal should put Javier Hernandez out of his misery and sign the Manchester United striker this summer, according to Ian Wright.

The Mexico international was dropped to the bench for the Red Devils’s 2-0 loss to Everton at Goodison Park despite scoring two goals in his last two Premier League outings.

Hernandez has barely featured for the Red Devils this season, scoring four goals in nine Premier League appearances, with four of those from the substitutes’ bench.

And Wright feels Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has the opportunity to end their search for a proven goal-scorer by signing the 25-year-old forward this summer.

Arsenal cemented fourth place after an emphatic 3-0 victory over Hull City on Sunday, with Lukas Podolski scoring twice to take his tally to four goals in two games.

Everton are a point behind the Gunners in the race for the final Champions League spot, and Wright urged Wenger to continue to show faith in the free-scoring Germany international.
