West Ham United: Fabrizio Romano makes Jesse Lingard transfer claim -West Ham Transfer Rumours

As per reliable transfer reporter Fabrizio Romano, West Ham may now have some competition in a race to sign Manchester United star Jesse Lingard.

The Lowdown: Lingard on the radar…

Reports over the last month have suggested that the 29-year-old could be on his way out of Old Trafford in January after a lack of chances under former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

ESPN reported that talks over a new deal for Lingard stalled last month with the playmaker now weighing his winter window options and West Ham have been tipped as real frontrunners.

The England international himself even dropped a cryptic Instagram hint as to where he may end up, uploading a picture of himself on loan at the London Stadium last campaign in a teasing message.

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

He backs that West Ham are also in the hunt to sign the Champions League man in January after an impressive stint over the second half of 2020/2021.

The Verdict: Pull out all the stops…

As manager David Moyes scours for more attacking options, with Lingard believed to be one of his targets (The Evening Standard), the Scotsman and recruitment chief Rob Newman simply must do everything possible to win the race.

Showcasing how perfect he is for West Ham already with nine goals and four assists in just 16 Premier League appearances for the Irons last season, Lingard’s numbers are matched only by his plaudits.

The Hammers’ own Declan Rice, for example, hailed the Three Lions ace as a ‘real gem’ and the player West Ham ‘needed’ during his spell at the club (Redknapp’s Big Night Out via The Evening Standard).

Meanwhile, former Premier League striker Kevin Campbell told Football Insider that Lingard is an ‘incredible player’ even amid his lack of game time in Manchester (Football Insider).

As West Ham fight on all fronts over what is, arguably, their most challenging top level campaign for years, the Red Devils outcast could find a new lease of life with a stunning return to the English capital next month.
