Since joining in January, Lingard has enjoyed a fine loan spell at West Ham having scored eight goals in just nine Premier League games, which saw him earn a recall to Gareth Southgate’s England squad last month.
Should West Ham sign Jesse Lingard?
Simon Jordan claimed on talkSPORT that West Ham won’t be able to sign Lingard this summer because he will cost them too much, and that Man United will value him at £60 million.
Speaking on how £60 million wouldn’t be a lot of money for West Ham and how it would be a big thing for Lingard to leave Man United, Howey told The Transfer Tavern:
“It’s all very good going somewhere on loan but it’s a totally different proposition moving to London permanently.
“I think £60 million is a lot of money for Jesse Lingard, but on the other hand if he went to West Ham for that amount of money and keeps up this kind of form he’s in, then it won’t be a lot.”
It has been reported that David Moyes wants to sign Lingard permanently in the summer, however, they face competition from Arsenal who are prepared to hijack any potential deal for the Man United midfielder.
Moyes will be hoping Lingard can remain fit for the rest of the season and help bring Champions League football to the London Stadium next season.
