West Ham in talks to sign Jesse Lingard according to Fabrizio Romano

West Ham United are holding talks to sign Jesse Lingard on a free transfer when he is officially out of contract with Manchester United.

That’s according to Fabrizio Romano who suggested that a move back to the Hammers would be good for Lingard, when speaking exclusively to Caught Offside.

We all know just how important Jesse was to the Hammers during his four month loan spell at the London Stadium last season.

West Ham manager David Moyes is a huge fan of the 29-year-old and described him as an ‘incredible’ player last season (Claret and Hugh). Mark Noble was impressed too, and labelled Lingard as ‘phenomenal’ (Daily Mail).

The Hammers fans loved Lingard as well and on top of that, he loved his time in East London.

And it appears as though we could see him back in the famous Claret and Blue next season…

West Ham hold talks to sign Lingard

The 29-year-old is out of contract with his boyhood club Manchester United at the end of this month.

And Fabrizio Romano has claimed that West Ham have held talks to bring Lingard back to the London Stadium, when speaking to Caught Offside.

We believe that bringing the England International back is a no-brainer for the Hammers, as long as we don’t spend all summer chasing him.

Let’s get a deal done for him quickly and efficiently.

The 29-year-old currently earns around £130k-a-week (The Daily Star). That’s an awful lot of money and Jesse will undoubtedly be demanding a similar wage for what will be the final big contract of his career.

His availability on a free transfer means that we should have no problem paying those kind of wages for the Manchester United man though.

He proved last season just how effective he can be for us in our counter-attacking setup.

And with West Ham reportedly holding talks to sign Lingard, it seems as though a return to the London Stadium could well be on the cards for the 29-year-old in the summer transfer window.
