The Hammers have been linked with the 27-year-old Englishman all summer long.

TEAMtalk claimed back in July that West Ham boss David Moyes wants to bring Lingard to the London Stadium

And Ole Red Devils boss Gunnar Solskjaer is prepared to let the 27-year-old leave Old Trafford this summer (90 Min).

The England international has been linked with moves to Tottenham and Zenit St Petersburg (ESPN).

But Foot Mercato claims that West Ham and Everton are in the race to sign him as well.


Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti has already been busy in the transfer market this summer, having considerably strengthened his ranks at Goodison Park.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of David Moyes at the London Stadium.

Not worth the money

It is questionable to suggest that Lingard would be a good signing for either West Ham or Everton, however.

The Manchester United man, who earns £100k-a-week according to the Sun, scored just one goal and failed to register a single assist in 21 Premier League games last season (Transfermarkt).

In those 21 outings, Lingard averaged just one shot, one key pass and 0.7 dribbles per game (Who Scored).

The Hammers and the Toffees could be making a big mistake by signing him. Especially if they pay the £25 million that United allegedly want (the Sun) for his services.
