The Hammers may not be the only club in the bidding to sign Jesse Lingard in the summer!
The attacking midfielder has made a huge impression during his short time in east London.
He is on loan from Manchester United and there is, of course, a hope that he will end up a permanent Iron.
We understand that is the intention, to make a move and keep him around, but Eurosport now report that Leicester are keeping a close eye on things as they weigh up a bid of their own.
There isn’t much information in the report, just the claim that the Foxes have ‘some interest’ and will continue to watch him.
The Hammers probably have the advantage here, purely by virtue of him being in London and looking to be loving life along with a special relationship wioth David Moyes
He has scored three goals already, including the vital winner against Spurs, and if he keeps playing like this, we’ll be right at the front of the queue to lock him down!
