Jesse Lingard might be a Participant of the 12 months contender if he maintains his kind for West Ham, in response to Tony Cascarino.
The England midfielder has scored six targets and registered three assists since in eight matches since becoming a member of the Hammers on mortgage from Manchester United in January.
Bruno Fernandes, a £47million arrival from Sporting Lisbon final January, had an analogous affect within the second half of the Premier League marketing campaign with eight targets and 7 assists in 14 appearances.
It led to discussions amongst followers over whether or not Fernandes ought to have been a contender for the PFA Participant of the 12 months award, which was finally gained by Man City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne.
And Cascarino reckons the identical talks must be had about Lingard, who has helped West Ham into the highest 4 since arriving in east London.
He stated: “For those who return to final season, Fernandes got here to Manchester United in January.
“He performed half a season after which there was the controversy over whether or not he must be a candidate for Participant of the Season.
“Quite a lot of followers, in all probability largely United followers, felt that with how huge of an affect he had. It’s made me assume, may you make the identical argument for Jesse at West Ham?
“Might he be a candidate for Participant of the Season?”
In the meantime, talkSPORT host Simon Jordan reckons Manchester United may demand £60million for Lingard this summer season.
He stated: “I simply don’t see the place there’s a parallel universe the place they’re going to get Lingard to West Ham or they’re going to get the economics of the Lingard deal to West Ham.
“What West Ham have achieved is placing Lingard again on the map, giving Lingard a stage the place he can play on the degree that clearly he’s able to.
“All that may do is enhance the fee implications of getting him within the first place.
“[If Lingard wants to join West Ham permanently] what Manchester United will say is, ‘that’s nice, you may go there if you wish to, that’s £60m.’”
