A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Sun claiming that Jesse Lingard is on the Gunners’ summer wishlist.
This summer looks set to be a crucial one for Mikel Arteta. It appears that the supporters remain divided over whether he is the right man to take the club forward.
There have been times when Arsenal have looked outstanding. But it is difficult to argue that they have taken many steps forward over the course of the campaign.
With that in mind, the fans will be hoping to see some big statements in the market. And it appears that one of the players on their list is arguably the most in-form performer in the Premier League right now.
According to The Sun, Arsenal are planning to rival West Ham for Lingard. It is noted that the Gunners could afford to pay his £110,000-a-week wages.
Lingard has been outstanding since joining the Hammers on loan in January. He has now scored eight goals in nine games for David Moyes’s side.
Admittedly, some on social media are not pleased about the links. There are clearly concerns that Lingard’s purple patch cannot last much longer. And of course, he is hardly a youngster with room to improve.
But there are also some who feel that he could prove an inspired signing. If he is capable of replicating this form next season, he could be an outstanding addition.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Arsenal fans were saying about Lingard in the wake of the links emerging…
Why are people laughing at this ? We are a mid table club and this fella would walk into our side https://t.co/L8XI0G7dil

I can say I have never been a fan of Lingard but if this is what he can do? Why not sign him? I don’t understand all the hate for it
