The Lowdown: Moyes eyeing move…
As reliably reported elsewhere, Lingard remains a priority target for Moyes and the Hammers following their previous attempts to bring him back to the London Stadium.
Rio Ferdinand was quick to praise the ‘amazing‘ Lingard during this spell but he couldn’t quite fight his way into the United starting eleven over 21/22.
Moyes is apparently pushing to seal Lingard on a permanent deal this window with a Turkish reporter now sharing what he knows on the situation.
The Latest: Lingard ‘talks’ claim made…
Which striker should West Ham sign?
As well as this, Moyes and co apparently have a plan for ‘when the deal is completed’ – and that is to ‘seek offers’ for winger Said Benrahma (Twitter).
The Verdict: In motion?
It appears the Irons boss wants to replace Benrahma with Lingard this summer as he aims to upgrade and rotate his squad, coming as a fair few decisions are made behind-the-scenes.
As West Ham set their sights on transfer targets, the east Londoners are seemingly willing to let many current first teamers depart in their stead – including the likes of Tomas Soucek according to recent reports.
This could be a really interesting summer for GSB and one which may well define their 2022/2023 season and beyond.
