West Ham United Weighing Up An Offer For Manchester United Playmaker: Dream Signing For Moyes?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, The Telegraph mentioned that West Ham United are weighing up a fresh offer for Manchester United playmaker Jesse Lingard in January. It has been mentioned that the Hammers are planning to make a new bid to land the English attacker after his contract talks with the Red Devils collapsed recently.

Lingard’s Bit-Part Role At Manchester This Season

Lingard’s current deal at Old Trafford runs out next summer, so the East London outfit could potentially secure his signature for a cut-price fee if they can convince Man United to part ways with their prized asset during the winter transfer window.

The 28-year-old has struggled to earn regular first-team starts at the Theatre of Dreams this season but has still managed to put in a few eye-catching displays for the Red Devils off the bench. Lingard has banged in two goals and grabbed one assist in nine matches for the Mancunian outfit during this campaign on all fronts.

All of his appearances have come as a substitute which explains why he is only averaging 0.5 shots, 0.3 key passes and 0.2 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. However, the England international had done well to complete 95% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

Will Lingard Be A Dream Signing For West Ham United Boss David Moyes?

Lingard is a good dribbler with the ball at his feet and can be a hard man to stop when he is running at full swing towards the opponent’s penalty box. He has got the vision to play a killer pass in the final third and can also chip in by scoring a few important goals for his team.

However, the English sensation’s lack of first-team opportunities this season has derailed his progress, so it makes a lot of sense for the player to opt for a change of scenery during the January transfer period. Lingard had a fruitful six-month loan at West Ham in the second half of last season, so the Hammers could be an ideal fit for him this winter.

We can expect the Man United outcast to add plenty of goals and creativity to David Moyes‘ frontline. Plus, Lingard knows the London club well from his brief loan experience with them earlier this year which means that he won’t need much time to settle into life at the London Stadium. Thus, the 32-time England international will be a dream signing for Moyes to pull off in January.
