WEST HAM are still favourites to clinch Jesse Lingard’s signature.
That’s according to bookmakers Sky Bet, who’ve priced the Hammers at 4/6 to sign the Manchester United attacker.
Lingard enjoyed a phenomenal loan spell at the London Stadium last season.
The 28-year-old scored nine goals and provided five assists in 16 appearances to help David Moyes’ side qualify for Europe.
His profitable loan spell also earned him a recall to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for fixtures against Austria and Romania.
West Ham are still desperate to sign Lingard on a permanent basis ahead of the 2021-22 campaign, which starts on August 13.
But their hopes are fading with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eager to keep the playmaker at Old Trafford.

Lingard is currently in pre-season with United and came on as a second-half substitute during their opening friendly against Derby.
And after the 2-1 victory, Solskjaer said: “He was one of the positives. He’s a Manchester United player and he wants to fight for his place.
“He’s come back bright, confident and with lots of energy. I think everyone saw what he did at the end of last season with West Ham.
“He’s still in my plans. I expect him at Man Utd at the start of the season.”
However, with Jadon Sancho set to arrive from Borussia Dortmund – United might decide to loosen their grip closer to the new campaign.
And there’s plenty of other clubs in contention, according to Sky Bet.
Leicester and Atletico Madrid are West Ham’s closest challengers at 10/1 and 12/1 respectively with Rafa Benitez’s Everton available at 14/1.
North London duo Tottenham and Arsenal are next in the betting market at 14/1 and 16/1.
Jose Mourinho’s Roma are 18/1 with AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund locked together at 20s.
