According to talkSPORT, Tottenham Hotspur and chairman Daniel Levy are ‘queuing up‘ to sign Manchester United ace Jesse Lingard in a potential January coup – with other clubs from the Premier League and abroad also apparently swayed by the Englishman.
Lingard has not been granted many opportunities to work his way back into the Red Devils starting eleven this season, making no Premier League appearances and just three in all competitions over 2020/2021 (WhoScored).

Yes, get it done Levy
Spurs enter Lingard race
This has resulted in plenty of speculation surrounding his future at Old Trafford, and given Jose Mourinho’s presence at Spurs – he has previously waxed lyrical over Lingard – the Lilywhites have been touted as suitors.
Indeed, as per talkSPORT, Levy is ‘queuing up’ to sign Lingard in a January loan deal alongside the likes of West Ham United, Sheffield United and ‘numerous’ clubs abroad – with the £100,000-per-week ace not exactly short of options.
If he were to choose north London, Lingard would serve as a homegrown replacement for wantaway star Dele Alli as he reportedly pushes for a move to Paris-Saint Germain (Fabrizio Romano).
Transfer Tavern take
However, adding a foreign player to Spurs’ overflowing quota could become a mess (Alasdair Gold), and if the Lilywhites are to sign a much-needed creative influence this window, Levy will have to seriously think about who he decides to bring in.
