Lingard improving with West Ham

Jesse Lingard has enjoyed something of a career revival over the last few months.

The 28-year-old majorly struggled for any sort of regular action with Manchester United over the first half of the campaign.

He notched just three appearances for the Red Devils, all of which came in cup competitions.

As a result, it didn’t come as too much of a surprise when United allowed Lingard to depart Old Trafford on loan during the winter window.

What has since proven surprising, though, is just how impressive the midfielder has looked with West Ham.

In just nine league outings for David Moyes’ outfit, Lingard has notched eight goals and four assists.

Such fine form has seen Lingard recalled to the England squad for the first time since June of 2019 and he is now well in with a shout of making the Three Lions’ squad for the Euros.

Arsenal linked with Lingard

After his fine start to life in London, West Ham have of course been tipped to make the move for Lingard permanent in the summer.

Now, though, it appears another Premier League outfit have shown an interest in the Englishman.

According to a report from the Mirror this weekend, citing the Daily Star, Arsenal have identified Lingard as a potential target for the summer transfer window.

It is added that Man United chiefs are  believed to have wanted to keep the door open for a potential return to Old Trafford whilst also wanting to create the potential bidding war, which they now look to have potentially done.

No potential fee is mentioned in the piece, but if Lingard keeps up his recent form for the remainder of 2021/22, you would imagine his price will only continue to rise.
