Jesse Lingard of Manchester United, who becomes a free agent next month, has been approached by West Ham United.

After a good loan spell last season, Hammers manager David Moyes has had a long-standing interest in the England attacking midfielder, 29.

Since then, Moyes has attempted to sign Lingard on a permanent basis twice.

Lingard claims he has been let down by his treatment over the last 12 months and has resolved to quit Old Trafford, despite the arrival of new manager Erik ten Hag.

Lingard has attracted a lot of interest from clubs in the last two transfer windows.

Manchester United, on the other hand, refused to allow Lingard to join a rival for a European spot, and both previous manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his temporary replacement Ralf Rangnick assured him that he would have a chance to prove himself in the first team.

Lingard only started two Premier League games last season and was disappointed that interim manager Rangnick did not bring him off the bench in the 3-0 win against Brentford, which would have been his final appearance at Old Trafford for a player who has been with the club since he was seven years old.

He did not play in the final four games of the season for the club.

Lingard’s brother complained on social media that the England star had received “never even a farewell” after “20 years of blood, sweat, and tears, four domestic medals, and three cup final goals.”

While other teams are keen, Moyes is hoping that his connection with West Ham – Lingard recently sent a message of support for former teammate Mark Noble, who is retiring – will give them an advantage.

Lingard was voted Premier League Player of the Month for April 2021 after scoring nine goals and providing five assists in 16 games for the Hammers on loan.

After a poor end to the season that included a Europa League semi-final loss to Eintracht Frankfurt and a run of five points from their last seven Premier League games, which cost them a second consecutive top-six finish, Moyes has promised to strengthen his squad.

West Ham will instead compete in the Europa Conference League play-offs in August, but Coach Stuart Pearce, who announced his departure from the club on Monday, will not be part of Moyes’ backroom staff for those.
