Lingard alternative eyed

By Dave Langton

West Ham could move for Norwich star Todd Cantwell if they cannot do a deal to sign Jesse Lingard in the January transfer window.

Lingard remains a target for David Moyes and there will be an attempt to bring him back from Manchester United in the winter window.

But a move for Cantwell is also being considered, with the Canaries star in a similar contractual situation.

His deal also expires at the end of the season and he is seen as the type of player who could operate across the forward line.

Cantwell can play on both the left and the right and in attacking midfield, and he has Premier League experience; the 23-year-old has made 42 appearances in the top-flight, scoring six goals and registering two assists.

Norwich look dead certs to be relegated this season – they have won just one of their opening 11 games of the campaign and are already five points off safety – and there is a feeling that he would be keen on a move to the London Stadium.

Cantwell is valued at £19.8m by Transfermarkt but he could be available for a knock-down fee given his contract situation and the potential of Norwich being in the bottom three in the January transfer window.

  1. Think Connor Gallagher is a much better player. Would be more expensive but you get what you pay for. I think we have to get away from this mindset that we’ll only buy a player if he’s cheap.
