The door is open for West Ham United to sign Jesse Lingard permanently from Manchester United this summer according to a report from the Daily Mail.
Hammers boss David Moyes brought the 28-year-old attacking midfielder to the London Stadium on loan in January.
And that is now looking like an inspired piece of business from the Scot.
Lingard has been superb for West Ham, racking up four goals and one assist for Moyes’s side thus far.
The Hammers fans are desperate for Moyes to sign Jesse permanently this summer.
The Daily Mail claims that the door is ajar for West Ham to do exactly that. It is suggested that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t see a future for the 28-year-old at Old Trafford with Bruno Fernandes at the club.
West Ham have to match ambitions of Jesse Lingard
One of the key factors to our chances of signing Lingard will be our ability to match his ambitions.
A recall to the England national team will prove to the 28-year-old that he can achieve his goals at the London Stadium.
And the Daily Mail claims that that is a very real possibility with England boss Gareth Southgate having recently spoke to Lingard about the possibility of recalling him to the Three Lions squad.
Getting a recall to the England squad would be a huge boost for Lingard.
It would be excellent news for West Ham too.
Whatever happens this summer, the Hammers need to do everything within their power to bring the 28-year-old to the London Stadium on a permanent basis.
He is a top class player. And the difference he has made to West Ham in such a short time has been truly remarkable.
