David Moyes pushing for West Ham to sign Jesse Lingard

West Ham United manager David Moyes is pushing hard for the club to re-sign Jesse Lingard on a free transfer, 90min understands.

The Hammers have been busy in the summer transfer window already, bringing in Nayef Aguerd and Alphonse Areola from Rennes and Paris Saint-Germain respectively, but are keen to land at least another four or five players to ensure they are competitive in both the Premier League and Europa Conference League.

Lingard is about to become a free agent after Manchester United opted against renewing his contract at Old Trafford, and he is a long-term target for West Ham – owing to a hugely successful loan spell during 2020/21 that yielded nine goals in 16 appearances.

Indeed, West Ham attempted to sign Lingard on a permanent basis last summer – though he opted at the time to stay at Old Trafford and fight for his place – and 90min revealed in May that the club remained interested in bringing him back to London Stadium.

Sources have now confirmed to 90min that manager David Moyes, who has praised Lingard publicly on a number of occasions, is continuing to push West Ham’s hierarchy towards concluding a deal, and is hopeful of a positive outcome.
