Many West Ham United fans have been discussing a news update about Jesse Lingard that recently emerged on social media.
The Daily Mail have recently reported on Lingard’s situation at Manchester United, saying that West Ham are still very much keen on signing the Englishman before the end of the ongoing January transfer window. The report also states that the midfielder is considering his future at Old Trafford and he wasn’t in the squad for the club’s recent FA Cup win over Liverpool.
The report also claims that West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United are also interested in Lingard, but they would both prefer a loan deal for him.
Is Lingard better than Lanzini?
Lingard has previously worked under David Moyes during the Scotsman’s tenure at Man Utd. Moyes had managed the midfielder in some friendlies, before Lingard was loaned out to Birmingham and Brighton.
The 28-year-old seems to be out of favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, as he is yet to play even once in the Premier League and has only played in the League Cup and the FA Cup. Even in the second half of the 2019/20 campaign, Lingard hadn’t played too much for the Red Devils and wasn’t in the squad for multiple games.
Solskjaer recently gave an update about Lingard’s situation and said: “So, of course, he wants to play football, we will have to see and I will sit down with Jesse and make a decision on what we’re going to do. So far, he’s been the ultimate professional, trained well with a small group this morning that were not in squad.”
The news about West Ham’s interest in Lingard was relayed on Twitter by West Ham Central. Many Hammers fans made their views clear about it.
What did West Ham fans make of this news about Lingard?
“Got Everton bound written all over and they’re welcome to him.”
“Moyes worked with him before. Got to let him have the benefit.”
“Loan with option would be good. I trust Moyes on this one.“
