Having spent the first half of the 2020/21 campaign out of the picture at parent club Manchester United, the 28-year-old has turned his season around since joining the Hammers.
Twitter: Jesse Lingard is likely to join West Ham United for around £25 million on wages worth around £100k-a-week.

Furthermore, ex-Manchester United defender Gary Neville has stated on the Sky Sports website that there is little desire at Old Trafford to see the Warrington-born ace return: “There’s a feeling that Jesse Lingard, having done really well at West Ham, could come back, but I think Ole will say ‘no’ and tell him to go and explore elsewhere.”
READ WEST HAM VERDICT
Signing Lingard would be the ideal starting point in terms of transfer business at the London Stadium this summer.
Valued at £13.5million by Transmfermarkt, a transfer fee of almost double may seem excessive, however, given the impact made in the second half of the season, it’s one West Ham would surely be happy to part with.
