West Ham agony as Solskjaer offers Jesse Lingard Man Utd clean slate
United have come to a decision on Lingard's future - and it seems Bruno Fernandes has had a major say on the player's next moveThe 28-year-old has been sensational for the Hammers since joining on loan from Manchester United in January. The talented forward has scored nine goals and provided four assists in 16 Premier League appearances. He helped the East End outfit finish an impressive sixth in the table and a place in next season’s Europa League.
West Ham United could be set for a historic summer if they play their cards right.
After staving off relegation with one game to go last year, David Moyes has steered the Irons in the Europa League, with their highest finish in 22 years.

It’s no secret that there are two top priorities this summer.
The first is their need for another frontline addition. After the club sold club-record flop Sebastian Haller to Ajax in January, Moyes was left with only one senior striker with the injury-prone Michail Antonio, who isn’t even a centre-forward by trade.
They cannot risk going into 2021/22 without at least one reinforcement in this role and Chelsea outcast Tammy Abraham is not only thought to be amongst Moyes’but is also free to leave Stamford Bridge.

Another priority is signing Jesse Lingard permanently from Manchester United, something that seemsonce the Scot’s contract extension is announced.

Someone who fits the bill is Fiorentina colossus Nikola Milenkovic, who has beento East London in recent months. He would be expected to cost around and would be a to their current options, slotting in nicely alongside Angelo Ogbonna.
The fourth and final addition to Moyes’ ranks could be between the sticks as Lukasz Fabianksi is getting no younger. A clear contender here is relegated West Brom shot-stopper Sam Johnstone, who made his England debut this week and has been ofto West Ham.
