According to the Mirror, the big-spending club has approached the Premier League champions about Hernandez, who seems to be struggling to find a spot in United boss David Moyes' No.1 side.
With Gareth Bale set to move to Real Madrid and Spurs looking to sell Jermain Defoe before the transfer window closes, the report said that Villas-Boas finds himself needing a new finisher, adding that 'Chicharito' Hernandez has an excellent record in that position despite his frequent spells out of United's starting XI.
According to the report, Hernandez would be more-than-adequate replacement and would fit in with Tottenham's style by easing the demands of a busy season at home and abroad.
United are not pushing out the Mexico international, who has never given them any trouble, but a sizeable bid may see his spell at Old Trafford end, the report added.
