West Ham United are allegedly set to lodge an offer for Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard. After racking up 232 appearances for the club, Lingard will depart Old Trafford at the end of June following the conclusion of his deal.
With the player set to become available, the Hammers are expected to make the England international an offer to bring him back to the London Stadium for a second stint following a loan period in the 2020-21 term.
According to the Daily Mail, the Irons are in pole position to land the attacker, with manager David Moyes making it clear that he is keen to bring the out-of-contract man back to the capital.
Lingard netted nine goals in just 16 Premier League outings on loan during the second half of the 2020-21 term – more than he has bagged in his past three seasons at the Theatre of Dreams combined.
The 29-year-old misfit started just two top-flight games for his boyhood club during the 2021-22 season, while Lingard’s only two goals of the campaign came back in November.
Elsewhere, Manchester United are in discussions with Lazio regarding the potential signing of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Ekrem Konur states.
The club have been long-time admirers of the Serbian star, who has recorded nine goals and 12 assists in 43 outings across all competitions this term.
