West Ham hopeful of tying up Lingard deal very soon

The Sun claims that after the 28-year-old’s omission from the England squad for the Euros this summer, the Hammers are ramping up their interest in signing him permanently from Manchester United.

This is just one that Moyes needs to get done and dusted asap.

Deal needs to happen now

Jesse proved to be a vital component of Moyes’s team last season. The way in which he attacked with pace, incision and energy was a key reason why we ended up in sixth spot in the Premier League table.

If West Ham can sign Lingard for £15-20 million it is a deal that we have to wrap up as soon as possible.
