That’s according to a report from Eurosport.
Jesse to swap Manchester for London…again?
It is claimed that Lingard is now open to the prospect of leaving Manchester United in January.
And it is suggested that a fresh approach from West Ham would be seriously considered by the Man United man and his representatives.
Lingard has played just 63 minutes in the Premier League under Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.
That clearly isn’t enough football for someone with the 28-year-old’s quality. And he quite simply must leave Old Trafford in January if he is to reinvigorate his career once again.
Jesse Lingard England squad decision to open door for West Ham?
Eurosport reckon that Jesse will seriously consider a return to the London Stadium in January having hardly played any football and being ignored by Gareth Southgate.
David Moyes absolutely loves Lingard and recently labelled him as an ‘incredible’ player (Claret and Hugh).
And he wants to sign him permanently for West Ham for around £15 million in January according to a report from The Mirror.
So it will be no surprise to see the Scot attempt to bring the 28-year-old back to East London.
Lingard was a huge hit during his loan spell with the Hammers last season.
He bagged nine goals and four assists in 16 Premier League games for the East London outfit.
The 28-year-old impressed far and wide with his displays for the Hammers. He earned rave reviews from fans and pundits alike.
Jesse Lingard England squad omission a real boost for West Ham?
Jesse returning to West Ham would provide Moyes with some real strength in depth in the attacking midfield department.
Especially with Said Benrahma set to miss at least a month of action in the new year when he jets off with Algeria for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Surely Lingard swapping Old Trafford for the London Stadium in January makes sense for all parties involved.
And the latest report from Eurosport seems to suggest that the most important party is swaying towards doing just that.
