Everton remain interested in signing Jesse Lingard

Everton have been linked with a move for Jesse Lingard over the last few weeks and now a new update has emerged that should encourage Farhad Moshiri to step up his pursuit of the player this summer.

What’s the latest?

According to Football Insider, West Ham United have now submitted an offer to the out-of-contract Manchester United star.

As per the report, sources have told the publication that the Hammers have now offered a lucrative deal for the player, however, Everton and Newcastle United are named as Premier League clubs who have a strong interest in signing Lingard.

Won’t cost Moshiri a penny

Moshiri must ramp up the club’s pursuit of the free-agent now that it has been revealed that West Ham have made a tempting offer for Lingard, as signing the player would be a major coup for many reasons but most importantly financially.

Everton have been reported to be in a sticky situation when it comes to finances, so capitalising on the golden opportunities to sign high-quality out-of-contract players this summer is an absolute must for the club, and Lingard is by far one of the most highly anticipated free transfer this summer.

The £75k-per-week dynamo who was hailed “cold” by Rio Ferdinand has a wealth of Premier League experience scoring 35 goals and delivering 21 assists for Man United in 232 appearances at his boyhood club but has fallen out of favour in the side in recent years.

Firstly, where did Everton finish in the Premier League?

Due to his lack of game-time at Old Trafford, Lingard made the move to the London Stadium in January 2021 which is where he reignited his career and proved his talents during a short six-month loan spell with the club.

With West Ham Lingard scored nine goals and contributed five assists with a goal involvement every 101 minutes over his 16 appearances, and clearly, David Moyes wants to finally give him his opportunity to return to the club on a permanent deal now that his contract his up.

Lampard will surely be hoping that Everton can hijack the deal as he attempts to improve the squad ahead of the new Premier League season, and Lingard would certainly add a great fresh perspective into the stale attacking threat at Goodison Park.

Should Everton sign Jesse Lingard?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Moshiri will have a difficult challenge in convincing the player to join the Toffees this summer unless a much more lucrative financial deal is tabled as, unlike Everton, West Ham have European football in the conference league next season alongside a promising seventh-place finish in the Premier League table.
