Joining Everton would be a good step for Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard, according to former Toffees striker Marcus Bent.
With just under one year left on his current Old Trafford deal, there has been much speculation surrounding Lingard’s future this summer, with a host of clubs reportedly interested in his signature.
One of those clubs was West Ham, but Sky Sports have recently reported that the Hammers now only believe they have a 10 percent chance of signing the England international.
Lingard was on loan at the London Stadium for the second half of last season, scoring nine goals and providing five assists.
With West Ham only giving themselves a small chance of re-signing Lingard, Marcus Bent thinks Everton should look to swoop in for his signature, exclusively telling Football FanCast: “If you look at it, he’s been on loan at West Ham and he’s done really well.
“I think at the moment, I don’t think he’s going to be number one, number two at Man United, so for a big club like Everton I think that would be a good basis where he can go and make his career.”
