West Ham Set To Sign Jesse Lingard For Free From Man United.

Jesse Lingard is set to leave Manchester United and sign West Ham as a free agent this summer.

West Ham United have put a contract offer forward to Jesse Lingard’s representatives as they look to lure him to the London Stadium, according to Sky Sports.

The forward is a free agent next week as his contract at Manchester United is due to expire on July 1.

Lingard enjoyed a successful four months loan spell at West Ham during the second half of the 2020/2021 season. 

He scored nine goals in 16 Premier League starts, which has made the Hammers boss David Moyes wants him back at the club to add to his counter attacking options.

Moyes absolutely loves the attacking midfielder and recently described him as an ‘incredible’ player.

The 29-year-old is likely to have a number of options on the table due to his free agent status, Newcastle United are also linked with Lingard, but the Hammers will hope that Lingard will want to return to the London Stadium.

The England international currently earns a huge salary around £130k-a-week at Man United, and Jesse will undoubtedly be demanding a similar wage for what will be the final big contract of his career. 

There have even been claims that he will be ask for a salary worth up to £180k-a-week.

Last season, Lingard managed just 355 minutes of Premier League football for Man United and scored just twice.

He is in search of regular football wherever he goes, so as to have a chance to make it to the England's squad ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

In preparation for a season in which West Ham will compete in both the Europa Conference League and the Premier League, David Moyes is working to strengthen his team.

Alphonse Areola, a PSG goalkeeper who spent last season on loan at the Hammers, is still a player that the club is attempting to sign.
