West Ham have made an offer to Manchester United (MU) midfielder Jesse Lingard to return to the London Stadium.
The 29-year-old player officially became a free agent on July 1 when his contract with United expired.
Jesse Lingard was quite successful on loan with West Ham in the 2020/2021 Premier League by scoring nine goals in 16 matches.
West Ham then tried to re-sign him in early 2021/2022, but was rejected by United. Even in January 2022 on the grounds of not wanting to loan Jesse Lingard to a club competing for a ticket to Europe.
On the other hand, West Ham have got a new player, to be precise in the central defender position. Neyef Aguerd from Morocco is 26 years old.
Aguerd was brought in with funds reaching 35 million euros and was contracted for five years.
The former Rennes defender is predicted to be an important player in the future considering the age of Angelo Ogbonna and Michael Dawson who are no longer young.
Back to Lingard, West Ham will get his service for free or free. The midfielder will be competing with many players in his position, namely Jarod Bowen, Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals.
In addition, there are Manuel Lanzini and Nicola Vlasic in the midfield sector. Especially for Vlasic, West Ham’s management is likely to release him to another club, whether it’s on loan or permanently.
West Ham are also reportedly monitoring Torino striker Andrea Belotti. The striker’s position is also very much needed by the club nicknamed The Hammers considering they only leave Michail Antonio as the spearhead.
Meanwhile, West Ham will confirm the signing of goalkeeper Alphonse Areola from Paris St-Germain.
Terms have been agreed with the French Ligue 1 champions for Areola, who spent last season on loan with the Hammers and will cost around £10.5m.
Areola impressed last season when he was in goal throughout West Ham’s run to the semifinals of the Europa League, where they were beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt.
