Jesse Lingard could stay in Premier League as Nottingham Forest steps up interest for the former Manchester United player: Reports 2

David Moyes is one of the biggest fans of Jesse Lingard. The England international enjoyed a resurgent half-season with the manager when he joined West Ham on a 6-month loan deal back in 2021.

In that period, Jesse Lingard managed 9 goals and 4 assists in 16 Premier League appearances for the Hammers. He was so good that West Ham was ready to sign him permanently but couldn’t agree on a fee with Manchester United.

Now that the player is available for free, West Ham could lose him to newly promoted Nottingham Forest as they look to strengthen their squad. Lingard himself has multiple options to choose from.

The ex-manchester united man got lucrative offers from Saudi and MLS as well but he wished to stay in Europe and especially in the Premier League for now. Moreover, reports suggest Jesse Lingard will decide on his next club latest by 24th July and Nottingham looks to be the designated destination for the player.
