Nottingham Forest may be looking to offload Jesse Lingard this January after just a matter of months with the club, it has been claimed.
The Englishman only arrived in the past summer, joining as a free agent after signing a contract reported to be worth £115,000 per week plus incentives.
Since then, however, it’s fair to say he’s struggled to impress. Indeed, he has failed to nail down a guaranteed spot in Steve Cooper’s team, starting nine of a possible 14 Premier League games without contributing any goals or assists (via Transfermarkt).
And if the latest claim is to be believed, Forest could well be ready to let Lingard go in the winter transfer market should the right sort of offer arrive.
Noted insider ExWHUemployee made the claim when discussing the player on The West Ham Way podcast.
He said: “All I know is that Nottingham Forest are considering letting him go if someone comes in for him in January or will pick up his wages. So it’ll be interesting to see what happens there.”
