Everton tipped to get ‘very good signing’ if they seal transfer for £30m Man Utd star

Everton have been urged to sign Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard in the summer transfer window because the midfielder can be a “very good signing” for the Toffees if given enough minutes. That is the view of former Premier League defender Alex Bruce.

Lingard has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford and United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could sanction his exit if he is successful in his summer clearout at the club.

The 27-year-old has featured in 35 games for United this season, but 17 of those appearances came off the bench.

And while the Metro claim that Lingard has no intention of leaving Old Trafford, Everton and Arsenal have both been linked with a move for the versatile midfielder.

Lingard has been valued at around £30million and his departure could fund United’s move for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

Bruce, who used to play for Hull City in the Premier League and is the son of former United defender and now Newcastle manager, Steve Bruce, thinks Everton could be a good destination for Lingard.

“He’s been linked with Everton, he’s been linked with Arsenal from what I’ve seen – he’s a player that just needs to go and play,” Bruce told Football Insider.

“I’m a big believer that players need to play to show their potential.

Bruce thinks Lingard’s role at United is far from ideal and believes the player would benefit from having a manager would is willing to show some “faith” in him.

“Some of the off-the-pitch hasn’t helped him,” Bruce added.

“However, I think he would be a very good signing for Everton, he’d be a good signing for everybody.
