Report: Manchester United desperate to sell Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones, David Moyes wants to bring both to West Ham

It is suggested that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is willing to allow the 27-year-old and 28-year-old to leave Old Trafford this summer.

Hammers boss David Moyes will surely be keen to bolster his central defensive and attacking midfield ranks this summer.

So Lingard and Jones might be useful options for the Scot.

According to a report from 90 Min, West Ham want to sign the Manchester United play-maker. Whilst the Mirror have recently reported that the Red Devils centre-back is also a summer target for the Hammers.

TEAMtalk suggests that the 20-time league champions are keen to get the duo out of the door at Old Trafford.

Would they be good signings for West Ham?

Now this is up for debate. Neither Lingard nor Jones have been in great form this season. They two United players seem to be shadows of their former selves.

But perhaps a move to east London could help reinvigorate their careers?

In those 20 outings, Lingard has averaged just one shot, one key pass and 0.7 dribbles per game (Who Scored).

For a so-called creative player, those numbers really are poor.

Jones, meanwhile, has made just two Premier League appearances all season for United. Injuries have played their part, but even if he was fully fit, it is questionable whether he would be a regular starter under Solskjaer.

If West Ham could pick the duo up for bargains fees, perhaps signing them would be worth the risk for them.

But not many Hammers fans would be overly enamoured with the signings of Lingard and Jones, if they do indeed move to the London Stadium this summer.
