According to a report by West Ham United insiders Claret & Hugh, GSB and the club are ‘ready to go all the way’ to seal Jesse Lingard on a permanent deal this summer – with the English remaining ‘desperately keen’ to become a Hammer according to those close to him.
West Ham ‘ready to go all the way’ for Lingard
The 28-year-old has burst on to the Irons scene in superb style since signing on loan from Manchester United in January, scoring five goals and assisting two of his West Ham teammates in the Premier League so far (WhoScored).
As a result, manager David Moyes has reportedly prioritised a permanent deal for Lingard ahead of the summer transfer window – with C&H providing the latest update that GSB are ‘ready to go all the way’ to make it happen.
In another possible boost for Moyes, the attacker remains desperately keen to join this summer – and sources inside the club have apparently seen Lingard become a permanent West Ham man in ‘all but name’.
Transfer Tavern take
Described as a player who looks set to be a ‘magnificent signing’ for Moyes by pundit Alan Shearer in February (Premier League), Hammers supporters will be hoping their club get it over the line this summer judging by his recent performances.
The Irons boss also wants a striker, but Lingard looks set to take precedence according to C&H.
