Jesse Lingard officially unemployed after Man Utd contract ends as Everton join free transfer hunt for attacker

EVERTON have joined the race to sign Jesse Lingard on a free transfer, according to reports.

Lingard, 29, is now a free agent following the expiry of his contract with Manchester United.

Lingard is now a free agent

He was limited to just 22 appearances last season, so the Red Devils decided against offering him a new deal.

Various clubs have registered an interest in the attacking midfielder, including West Ham.

Lingard enjoyed a successful spell with the Hammers during the second half of the 2020-21 season.

He scored nine goals and assisted five in 16 appearances during his stint in East London, so David Moyes is keen on the prospect of a reunion.

However, according to The Times and football journalist Paul Joyce, Everton are now interested in signing the former Man Utd star.

The Toffees are currently on the hunt for an attacking player to replace Richarlison, who joined Tottenham this week in a deal worth £60million.

Everton have already approached free agent Christian Eriksen to discuss the possibility of a deal.

But, they face stiff competition from both Man Utd and Brentford for his signature.
