West Ham will do anything to sign Jesse Lingard from Manchester United next season
Lingard moved to West Ham in January on loan until the end of the season and they do not have an option to buy Lingard in the current loan deal but they want to secure the player on a permanent transfer. In eight Premier League appearances for The Hammers, the England midfielder scored 6 goals and contributed 4 assists, what an astonishing performance! This amazing performance led the 28-year-old midfielder to be called-up for the England international team for the first team after 18 months. Now, West Ham is battling for the top-four of the Premier League, and they really want to have Jesse Lingard in their squad next season. The only problem is the fee Manchester United want, as The Sun, is 40€ million.
