The Manchester United midfielder has also represented the England at various youth levels before going on to secure 24 senior caps for his country thus far.

Lingard is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Manchester United this summer and the list of suitors in the England international continues to grow.

The Spurs are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 27-year-old as potential transfer target.

Jose Mourinho is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.

The England international will offer the Tottenham boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.

According to the report, “Tottenham are plotting a shock £30million transfer bid for Jesse Lingard. The Manchester United midfielder, 27, has seen his career stagnate over the past two years since Jose Mourinho left Old Trafford. But according to the Daily Star Sunday, the Special One is hoping to reignite his career in North London. Lingard has struggled for game time and form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has not started a Premier League match since January. The report adds the England international was fuming at being left out of the matchday squad for the opening game of the season against Crystal Palace. It is even suggested Lingard has tried to reach out to the club for showdown talks over his future – but has been ignored. The playmaker who came through the United academy and has 207 first-team appearances, came back from pre-season in peak condition but it appears he is not part of Solskjaer’s plans. Bruno Fernandes is the first-choice No10 and has been in fine form since arriving last season. So Mourinho may hope to capitalise on Lingard’s frustration and try to get the best out of him again – especially with Dele Alli’s future unclear.”


Tottenham have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the England international.

Good signing for Tottenham?

If Lingard is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Tottenham.

A move to Tottenham is exactly what Jesse Lingard needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Tottenham.

The Spurs fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

It will be interesting to see if Tottenham make their move for the 27-year-old in the coming days.
