Wolverhampton Wanderers have been named as one of several teams that were considering a swoop for Jesse Lingard back in January.
According to a report from the Daily Mail, Wolves had an interest in the 28-year-old during the winter window, amid his lack of game time at Manchester United.
Ultimately, Lingard headed to West Ham United for the remainder of the 2020/21 campaign – and he’s been a revelation for the Irons.
So far he’s made eight appearances for David Moyes’ side and scored six goals. He’s also notched four assists.
Lingard’s fine form continued against Wolves at Molineux on Monday night.
He scored a sensational solo effort, before playing key roles in Pablo Fornals’ and Jarrod Bowen’s goal.
His remarkable upturn has now led to a bit of talk that he could make a late push for Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad.
He’s also now said to be worth up to £30 million to Manchester United (Mail).
Lingard form uncomfortable viewing in light of new claim
Lingard is now absolutely flourishing at West Ham after losing his way a bit at United.
Knowing that Wolves were supposedly looking at the player in January will be a frustration for some fans knowing the struggles Wolves have had.
Lingard’s form will be especially annoying to some, knowing that Wolves decided to bring back Morgan Gibbs-White from his loan at Swansea City and have hardly used him since.
