West Ham are set to revive their interest in Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard, according to reports. The London club tried to sign Lingard over the summer but their efforts were rebuffed by United, who were intent on keeping the 28-year-old at Old Trafford.
Lingard spend the second half of last season on loan at West Ham and thoroughly impressed, scoring nine goals and assisting a further four in just 16 appearances for the Hammers.
His efforts for David Moyes’ side earned him several recalls to Gareth Southgate’s England squad but he remains on the periphery at Manchester United, with Solskjaer often choosing other attacking talents ahead of him.
Now, according to Eurosport, West Ham have set their sights on another attempt to sign him in January as they eye a permanent move.
Following a lack of minutes for Manchester United this season, new proposals are said to be seriously considered by Lingard’s entourage.
