Jesse Lingard is reportedly becoming increasingly open to the idea of leaving Manchester United in January, as he continues to struggle to break into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s first XI.
The 28-year-old has scored twice and registered one assist in eight appearances for the Red Devils this season, but he has only played 63 minutes of Premier League football in 2021-22.
The England international was again an unused substitute in Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Manchester City in the Premier League.
Lingard’s current deal at Old Trafford is due to expire next June, and according to Eurosport, the attacker is opening up to the idea of moving on in January.
The report claims that West Ham United are still interested in the Englishman, who starred on loan at the Hammers in the second half of last season.
Lingard, who is also believed to be attracting the attention of Newcastle United, has scored 35 goals and registered 21 assists in 218 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions.
