According to reports ‘New Training Photos of Jesse Lingard Emerge During West Ham Session’ Photos show Lingard training with the West Ham squad at their Rush Green training ground. He is pictured taking part in drills and passing exercises.
The photos have reignited speculation that Lingard could be on the verge of rejoining West Ham. The 29-year-old midfielder is a free agent after his contract with Nottingham Forest expired at the end of last season. He previously spent the second half of the 2020-21 season on loan at West Ham, where he scored nine goals in 16 appearances.
West Ham manager David Moyes is said to be interested in bringing Lingard back to the club. However, the Hammers are also interested in signing a new striker, and it is thought that they will not make a decision on Lingard until they have concluded their search for a forward.
It is also worth noting that Lingard has other options. He is reportedly being courted by a number of clubs in the Premier League and abroad. However, it seems that West Ham are the frontrunners to sign him.
Only time will tell whether Lingard will end up rejoining West Ham. However, the photos of him training with the squad are certainly a positive sign for the Hammers fans.
