Everton: Paul Brown drops Jesse Lingard transfer claim

Everton: Paul Brown drops Jesse Lingard transfer claim -Everton News

Journalist Paul Brown has now dropped an Everton transfer claim involving Jesse Lingard.

The Lowdown: Wage demands

As per ESPN, the Toffees are among the clubs who are eager to sign the 29-year-old, along with the likes of West Ham United, and the player is searching for the right club for him to gain first-team exposure so that he can force himself in contention for a place in England’s World Cup squad later this year.

He is reportedly seeking a contract worth £150,000-per-week to move to Merseyside, which would make him Everton’s highest-paid player by far.

The Latest: ‘Dangerous’

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Brown has now claimed that it would be ‘dangerous’ to sign the 29-year-old Lingard on a ‘massive’ salary,and does not expect the Toffees to outbidding West Ham on the wage front.

The reporter said: “Everton released quite a lot of money from the wage bill by getting rid of players already this summer and I know they hope to move more on as well.

“But I don’t think that means that they’d necessarily be outbidding West Ham on the wage front. I think it would be dangerous to add a player of Lingard’s age on a massive salary.

“I think they’re probably playing in the same kind of ballpark and Lingard knows that. He just needs to decide which club he’d rather sign for.”

The Verdict: Compromise needed

There is no doubt that Lingard would be a good signing for Everton on a free transfer, as he is currently rated at £16.2m by Transfermarkt.

Hailed as a ‘special’ player by David de Gea before leaving Manchester United, he has plenty of Premier League experience and would offer Lampard another handy option in the middle of the park.

However, he is 29 years of age now, so his best years are likely behind him. Therefore, the Toffees should not be looking to break their wage structure just to get a deal over the line for Lingard.
