Another summer has passed, and the transfer window for this year is approaching its conclusion. Despite the fact that Manchester United has had a good season in terms of signings, there are still a few players at the club who are unsure about their futures. After a fantastic half-season with West Ham United last season, Jesse Lingard is one of those guys. After failing to make a single Premier League appearance for United in the 2020/21 season, the 28-year-old joined David Moyes’ side.
Few could have predicted Lingard’s effect on West Ham, as he scored nine goals and provided four assists in his 16 games for the Hammers.
He also gained two England call-ups, one of which was for Gareth Southgate’s provisional 33-man Euro 2020 squad.
Lingard has been linked with a move to West Ham throughout the transfer window, and the London club is now ‘confident’ of completing a deal before the deadline next week, according to Football Insider.
West Ham are said to be in pole position after fresh talks this morning, despite interest from other Premier League clubs. David Moyes is said to be ‘confident’ after fresh talks.
Manchester United could make another signing this window if Lingard is sold, with any additions to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team reported to be contingent on outgoings.
