Hammers boss David Moyes is desperate to bring the 28-year-old back to the London Stadium this summer. And it seems as though Everton could be another obstacle for the East London outfit.

West Ham’s task of signing Jesse on a permanent deal already seemed like an extremely difficult one.

Lingard wants to stay and fight for his place at Old Trafford according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as quoted by Manchester United’s official website.

So our chances of signing him seem pretty grim for the Hammers as it is. Things may have just got a whole lot harder, however…

Everton could scupper West Ham plan to sign Lingard

Toffees boss Rafa Benitez wants to bring the Manchester United ace to Goodison Park according to a report from the Sun.

It is little wonder why Jesse is attracting so much attention after his heroics for the Hammers last season.

He racked up nine goals and four assists in just 16 Premier League games.

Lingard, who earns £80k-a-week according to the Manchester Evening News, proved that he still has what it takes to make a huge difference for whatever team he is playing for in the Premier League.

If Jesse’s heart is indeed set on staying at Man United, West Ham’s hopes of signing him permanently are dead in the water.

With Everton now in the race for his services, however, even if he does decide to leave Old Trafford the Hammers will have their work cut-out.

Perhaps it’s time for Moyes to just move on to alternative targets.
