Everton £20m target could consider moving for first-team football - report
Reported Everton target Jesse Lingard is considering his future, according to The Times.
The Toffees have apparently been eyeing the Manchester United attacker this summer.
West Ham United, where Lingard spent the second half of last season on loan, are reportedly also eager to sign him.
Now, The Times claims the 28-year-old is now prepared to leave Old Trafford in search of regular first-team football.
Lingard reportedly wants assurances from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over his playing time.
And if he’s not convinced he’s in line for regular first-team football, he could opt to move elsewhere, added the outlet.
According to The Express, Manchester United value the England international at £20million.
Can Everton land “top, top, top level” player?
Lingard returned to Manchester United over the summer having spent the second half of the 2020-21 campaign at West Ham.
He did well at the London Stadium, scoring nine goals and registering five assists in 16 Premier League appearances.
“If you see Jesse, I think Jesse, at the moment, if you watch the last 10 games, has been top, top, top level,” Bruno Fernandes told the Red Devils website last season.
Lingard’s efforts helped the Hammers qualify for the Europa League.
