Hammers boss David Moyes is expected to be a very busy man in the January transfer window.

The Scot’s main priorities next month will be to sign an established centre-forward and a top-class central defender.

It could be argued that bringing Lingard back to the London Stadium will be vital as well, especially with Said Benrahma set to head off to the Africa Cup of Nations with Algeria in the new year.

And it seems as though West Ham will the move for Jesse very soon indeed.

Eurosport claims that the Hammers ‘intend to open discussions as soon as the January window allows’.

Bringing the 28-year-old back to the London Stadium in January is an absolute no-brainer for David Moyes.

He was sensational for West Ham during his loan spell in East London last season, bagging nine goals and four assists in 16 Premier League games.

The Sun claims that the 32-capped England international could be available for around £10 million in January.

He is out of contract in the summer but so what? Moyes knows how much Lingard has to offer so he would be more than worth it.

Our attackers have been in fine form on the most part this season but it has still been obvious to see just how much we have missed Lingard.

 

It’s clear to see that the 28-year-old doesn’t have a future at Old Trafford under Ralf Rangnick. A move to West Ham is surely the ideal solution for all parties involved.
