According to a report by the Daily Star, via West Ham News, West Ham United have commenced talks with the agent of Manchester United attacker Jesse Lingard with the view to a potential move – prompting some Irons fans to buzz with excitement as this ‘great’ news emerges.
Lingard has been on the periphery of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans at Old Trafford, so much so that he has been linked with a move away for some time.
Should West Ham sign Jesse Lingard?
Yes, get it done
Now, the Daily Star report that GSB have entered talks with the player’s agent over a potential move to West Ham – with the east Londoners seemingly on red alert for any potential attacking additions.
David Moyes, having managed Lingard at United, is all too familiar with the player’s capabilities – and these supporters believe, despite his lack of recent action, that he would be a ‘class signing’.

West Ham fans buzz over Jesse Lingard news
“unpopular opinion: Lingard would be a great signing and he would ball for us”
“Was thinking the exact same thing. Would rotate in for Fornals. If Lingard could have the same tenacity as Fornals (which I think he could) but maybe stick a few more of the sitters away. Could be a class signing”
“This would be a good signing. I said it”
“I really rate him, post-2018 World Cup he’s gone sour but Moyes does get players going. I’d back this 100%”
“This could be one of the great moves”
“He’s better than Fornals @Callumfitzer_”
