Jesse Lingard is reportedly nearing a move to West Ham.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, West Ham are set to sign Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard.
In 209 appearances for United, Lingard has managed to score 33 goals, and create 20 goals for his teammates.
The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in England.
Jesse Lingard has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 4 goals in 24 senior appearances for the England national team.
However, so far this season, the 28-year-old has struggled for game time, appearing in just 2 matches, over which he has played a total of 99 minutes of football. As a result, it has been widely reported that the winger would like to leave.
By the club’s own admission, Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard is West Ham’s number one transfer target.
David Moyes is a long term admirer of Lingard and believes he can get the most out of the England international.
Jesse Lingard is a dynamic winger, who possesses good technical skills and ball control. He would provide a good variety to West Ham’s attack.
According to the report, “Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard are being linked with West Ham. The Sun says Lingard has been linked with a move to West Ham. The Star claims the Hammers have opened talks with the player’s agent. Lingard, 28, is entering the final six months of his contract at Old Trafford. David Moyes is looking to reunite with the attacking star after coaching him at the Red Devils.”
