Jesse Lingard has been heavily linked with a return to West Ham from Manchester United in January and his brother drops a hint after commenting on a poll set up by a fan account on Instagram.
The 28-year-old Man United ace spent a superb four-month loan spell with the Hammers last season.
Lingard racked up nine goals and four assists in 16 Premier League games for West Ham.
He returned to Old Trafford in May. Jesse hasn’t been given as many opportunities to start games by Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he might have hoped, however.
And the England international could be heading back to West Ham for £15 million in January (The Mirror).
Jesse Lingard brother drops hint on West Ham
A return to the London Stadium in January would surely be the ideal outcome for all parties involved.
Some Hammers fans would argue that David Moyes is actually more in need of signing a striker, however.
Hammers fan account West Ham Latest has 89,000 followers on Instagram and they ran a poll yesterday asking who Moyes should sign, Lingard or Belotti.
Lingard’s brother Louie Scott commented on the post:
Now that could mean a lot of things.
Perhaps he meant that the answer is an obvious one? Perhaps he meant that he’s tired of West Ham fans thinking that they have a chance of signing his brother?
Or perhaps he meant that the answer should be a no-brainer. Is Louie Scott hinting that if West Ham go in big for Jesse we will be able to sign him?
We think that could be the case.
Of course David Moyes needs to sign a striker. But bringing Jesse back to East London should be a priority as well in January.
