The Englishman joined the Hammers in the January transfer window after failing to make a Premier League appearance for the Red Devils in 2020-21, and went on to provide nine goals and five assists in his 15 appearances for David Moyes’ side, helping them to Europa League football.

So far this campaign, however, it has been a return to status quo, with Lingard having seen just 55 minutes of Premier League action across 4 appearances, although he has scored twice in that time.

With a World Cup looming in 12 months time, it seems certain that to rescue any chances of being on the plane to Qatar, Lingard needs to play more football than he is currently doing, which may mean a move away come January.

Now, as per Football Insider, it is Everton that Jesse Lingard would prefer, rather than a return to the London stadium, despite the Toffees having no European football.

As per the report, Lingard would prefer to remain in the north-west, handing Rafa Benitez’s side the initiative. With Everton lacking creativity while West Ham have signed Nikola Vlasic to replace Lingard, a move to Everton would make sense.

Would it be enough to get him into the England squad for the World Cup?
