West Ham are given a ‘strong chance’ of landing the England international, as they appear to be ahead of all other suitors in the race to land him.

Lingard wants to be reunited with David Moyes, as he knows the manager well from their time at Old Trafford together.

Lingard is now just waiting on Manchester United to sanction a loan move, as he seeks regular first-team football.

Lingard would add extra energy to their midfield, and give Moyes another option to pick in the attacking midfield slots.
