Report: Spurs enter Lingard race

Spurs have entered the race to sign Jesse Lingard from Manchester United, according to a new report from BBC Sport.

We all know that the Hammers have been looking to bring the attacking midfielder into the club this month, with manager David Moyes still a huge fan of the 29-year-old.

But it appears that Spurs are now trying to do a deal for Lingard that would potentially see him join the club in the summer, when his contract expires.

Tottenham’s director of football is Fabio Paratici and he has plenty of experience of signing players on free transfers, bringing the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Paul Pogba, and Andrea Pirlo to Italy for nothing during his time at Juventus.

The BBC Sport report also claims that Lingard is not keen on leaving the club this month, suggesting that it may come down to a bidding war in the summer, with the biggest signing-on fee likely to secure his signature.High rater

  1. why are we still interested in him ?Had his chance -made a wrong decision. Think he will fade away.

  2. Let the spuds have him then If he really is just keen on the biggest signing on fee!
    I thought of him more on wanting to play football as his primary goal, but if it comes down to mercenary tactics, they are welcome!!

  3. He either wants to join us or he don’t , I want a player who is committed to the cause . At the end of the day he will go where he wants to go it’s his choice !

  4. Everybody at WH went out of there way to make him welcome and he responded with some great goals and assists. Then something happened and his form dropped and later
    stated he was staying at Man U. If it doesn’t happen till summer we may not need him by then. Why aren’t we talking to him if DM is so keen?
