Journalist says West Ham’s hopes of signing Jesse Lingard aren’t dead

Journalist says West Ham’s hopes of signing Jesse Lingard aren’t dead - West Ham News

Jack Rosser, from the Evening Standard, doesn’t think that West Ham’s permanent pursuit of Jesse Lingard is over, but told The Transfer Tavern that his preference is to remain at Manchester United.

David Moyes is desperate to bring the 28-year-old back to the London Stadium this summer after his heroics during his loan spell last season helped the Hammers qualify for the Europa League.

Lingard scored nine times, finishing just one behind joint top scorers Tomas Soucek and Michail Antonio despite playing just 16 matches, and added five assists during his short stay with the club.

However, United have since offered the attacker a bumper new contract at Old Trafford, with his current deal expiring next summer.

Only true West Ham fans will get 100% on this impossible 2020/2021 season quiz! Let's get started, who were the only two Hammers to feature in every single Premier League game?

After narrowly missing out on the England squad for the Euro’s, Lingard is already back in pre-season training for the Red Devils and featured in their friendly with Derby last weekend.

However, despite everything pointing towards Lingard staying with his boyhood club, Rosser doesn’t think the Hammers chances of re-signing him are 100 percent over.

He told The Transfer Tavern:

“I wouldn’t say it’s completely dead. I’d say there’s still a chance, but now I would maybe be a bit surprised to see him back at West Ham.

“His preference is to stay at Manchester United, Rashford has gone for surgery, they have signed Sancho, but they’re not exactly blessed with players like Lingard.”
