Kevin Campbell has claimed that he does not think that Jesse Lingard will be at West Ham United next season.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Arsenal, Everton and West Brom striker believes that the East London club will struggle to sign him on a permanent deal from Manchester United in the summer transfer window:
“I think West Ham will struggle to sign him in the summer.
“At the end of the day, he is a United player. It is not as if he has never performed for Manchester United before.
“There is nothing worse than sending someone out to go and get some game time and the next thing you know he is ripping it to pieces. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be thinking, ‘He could be doing that for us.’
“West Ham are benefitting now but I cannot see him being there next season.”
West Ham must sign Lingard
David Moyes’ team need to do all that they can to try and sign Lingard permanently at the end of his loan spell from the Red Devils.
Should West Ham sign Lingard?
The England international has been nothing short of a revelation at the London Stadium, scoring no fewer than six goals and making a further four assists in just eight games in total in the Premier League so far in the 2020/21 term (Transfermarkt), which also earned him a recall into the Three Lions squad by Gareth Southgate for their 20222 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Former Irons striker and pundit Ian Wright described (Premier League Productions via HITC) him as both ‘devastating’ and a ‘danger’ after he helped them win 2-0 against Leeds United in the top flight in March, and it is clear that the 28-year-old still has a lot left to offer in a Claret and Blue shirt.
