David Moyes has led West Ham to an excellent season, securing European qualification for next term and also reaching the Europa League semi-finals, but the Scot will be aiming to go one better.
In order to do so, he will need to strengthen his squad. With more creativity needed, Moyes could have the perfect solution.
Transfer insider Dean Jones has stated that the Hammers are set to make an offer for exit-bound Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard.
He told GIVEMESPORT: “They are going to make an offer to Jesse Lingard. They haven’t got around to it just yet, but there is going to be something happening on that front.
“We’ll just have to wait and see what that Lingard proposal is, first of all.”
This is news that’ll leave the West Ham faithful absolutely delighted, given what they have seen before. Lingard joined the club on loan for the second half of the 2020/21 season and he scored nine goals and registered five assists in what was a phenomenal spell in east London.
On a free transfer, though, Moyes could be tempted to secure his signature before too long. The 29-year-old has struggled for regular game-time this season at Manchester United, featuring only 22 times and scoring just twice across a mere 548 minutes of action.
There is no doubt that Moyes could galvanise the player just like he did last season, and the midfielder’s spell at the London Stadium was a true representation of his talent, as he was so close to making Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad in what would have been a wonderful achievement.
The opportunity appears to be there for Lingard, who would likely get regular game-time and will have the chance to play in Europe at West Ham. Moyes mustn’t let this chance slip away.
