West Ham are looking to accelerate their pursuit of Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard now that the midfielder has been removed from the England squad, according to reports.
Lingard was named in Gareth Southgate’s 33-man squad of Three Lions for this summer’s European Championship, but the 28-year-old didn’t do enough to reach the final 26-man squad for the tournament, which starts this week.
The midfielder enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Hammers earlier this year, ultimately proving the difference for David Moyes’ side who earned a Europa League spot.

And according to The sunWest Ham hope the club can secure a permanent transfer for Lingard, who is currently on track to return for Manchester United when the pre-season campaign begins.
Lingard scored nine Premier League goals for the Hammers last season and provided five assists, putting him back in the picture for a spot in England in 2021.
The form earned the 28-year-old a spot in Southgate’s England squad for World Cup qualifiers in March and was almost part of the European Championships, with the Three Lions being one of the favorites to win.

Lingard remained part of the England squad for their pre-tournament friendlies against Austria and Romania, even though he was told he would not be part of the last 26.
With the midfielder heading into his summer break, he posted a positive message of support for the camp in England ahead of their first group game against Croatia on Sunday.
“When it comes to getting involved with the boys and representing my country, I will never stop smiling,” he said Posted next to an image of himself playing for his country.

Lingard was banned at the start of the season by Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but could once again impress at Old Trafford when preparations for the new season start again.
The midfielder has made over 200 appearances for the Red Devils since his first-team debut in the 2014-15 season, scoring 33 goals.
