The 29-year-old Hernández Balcázar now has to finalize personal terms and undergo a medical examination. West Ham says Hernández Balcázar will fly to London “in the coming days.”
He scored 37 league goals in 103 games for United, and also had a loan spell with Real Madrid before joining Leverkusen.
Hernández Balcázar, who has 48 goals for Mexico, netted 11 last season in the Bundesliga as Leverkusen finished 12th overall.
West Ham finished 11th in the Premier League so also failed to qualify for any European competition.
