Tottenham are keen to sign Jesse Lingard and have approached his representatives about a summer move.
Lingard is currently out of favour at Manchester United and his contract is due to expire at the end of the season, when he could join Spurs on a free transfer.
The 29-year-old was told by former United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he would feature regularly for the side this season, but he started just once under the Norwegian before he was sacked in November.
Lingard’s fortunes have not improved under Ralf Rangnick, who has also started the midfielder only once since replacing Solskjaer.
Lingard’s lack of game time contributed to his absence from the England squad for their most recent matches in November, after which he expressed his desire to play regular football ahead of the World Cup this winter.
Lingard’s struggles this campaign are in stark contrast to the second half of the 2020/21 season, when he scored nine times in 16 games during an impressive loan spell at West Ham.
