Everton Have Entered The Hunt To Capture Manchester Uniteds Jesse Lingard

According to rumours, Everton is the latest club to express interest in signing Jesse Lingard from Manchester United this summer.
Lingard’s United career appeared to be gone until he was loaned out to West Ham for the second half of last season, when he had a fantastic season and forced his way back into United’s thinking and the England set-up.
Lingard has returned to United to prove his worth to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but the Sun reports that Everton has joined the list of clubs keeping an eye on his status with the Red Devils.
Everton are apparently keeping an eye on Jesse Lingard’s status at Manchester United. However, Everton will face competition from West Ham, who are desperate to buy him permanently following his excellent loan spell at the London Stadium, as well as Atletico Madrid.
Rafa Benitez, Everton’s new manager, is prioritizing winger recruitment in order to provide Dominic Calvert-Lewin with more attacking options.
Benitez has already recruited Andros Townsend on a free transfer, with the experienced winger signing a two-year agreement at Goodison Park when his contract with Crystal Palace expired on Tuesday.
Demarai Gray, a fellow winger and former Leicester player, is expected to join Townsend at Goodison Park.
Everton is in talks with his present club, Bayer Leverkusen, about a PS1.7 million buyout clause.
Everton’s new manager, Rafa Benitez, wants to reinforce on the flank ahead of the new season. Everton has also inquired about Burnley’s Dwight McNeil in order to boost the service to their strikers, which includes Richarlison.
Despite Everton and West Ham expressing interest in signing Lingard, any transfer is contingent on United’s ambitions for him.
Solskjaer recently struck a blow to Lingard’s potential suitors by announcing that the England winger will be part of his plans for the coming season.
‘Jesse has come back, been bright, and he wants to battle for his spot, and there’s nothing better than seeing players want to fight for their spot,’ Solskjaer said after United beat Derby in a friendly over the weekend.
‘What he did at the end of last season, that’s the true Jesse, that’s what we know he’s capable of, and I think we saw towards the end that we lacked certain options at times,’ says the executive producer.
‘At the time, Jesse is in the works.’
