SUNDERLAND look as though they will face a fight to land Uruguayan striker Abel Hernandez.
The Black Cats are among several clubs which have been linked with a move for the Palermo front-man .
But the club’s president Maurizio Zamparini is keen to hold on to the 22-year-old.
“In our attack next season will be Abel Hernadez,” said Zamparini.
“This will be a kick in the ass for former coaches that didn’t play him.”
