Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Jesse Lingard from Premier League rivals Manchester United in the January transfer window, according to Football.London. It has reported Tottenham have made contact with Lingard’s representatives over a potential move to the North London outfit this month.
Lingard is out of contract at United at the end of the season and is struggling for playing time at the moment. The England international attacking midfielder has made eight substitute appearances and has played thrice in the Champions League for the Red Devils so far this campaign.
Both United and Tottenham are aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League table this season. It is unlikely that the Red Devils will let Lingard leave for Tottenham in the middle of the campaign and enhance Antonio Conte’s side’s chances of ending up in the Champions League places.
