Eurosport reported Lingard could be leaving Manchester United during the January transfer window.
West Ham is interested in Lingard, a 28-year-old.
The Hammers believe that Lingard could be brought to London Stadium by the Hammers.
According to reports, West Ham will begin discussions about Lingard's move as soon as January transfers are open.
JESSE LINGARD SHOULD REMEMBER WEST HAM TRANSFER
Lingard can play in both attacking midfielder and winger. He spent the second half last season on loan to West Ham United from Manchester United.
Lingard should, in our opinion be seriously considered a move to Hammers during the January transfer window.
The 28-year old was a huge success for the Hammers, who are currently playing in the Europa League.
David Moyes' side is also looking to finish in the top four of Premier League.
Transfers would be beneficial for both Lingard and West Ham.
