Lingard, to some, he is like marmite.
There has been speculation that Jesse Lingard could come to Spurs. Yes, I know he isn’t a fans favourite, however, his spell at the Spammers was a good one, and under the right coach, he could continue that run. But it also depends on what our Coach thinks of him, but his name is in their thoughts.
But those Spurs fans who want to see him at our club aren’t alone. Kevin Phillips (ex Sunderland player) is another one who believes that a move to our club could be a good one.
As I said, Jesse did brilliantly in his loan spell at the Spammers last season. Some have credited him as the leading player that helped the Wet Spams to leapfrog us for a place in the Europa League (maybe that is reason enough not to have him!).
But not only did Lingard do well at the Ironmongers, but he also got a crack at the England squad (just failing to get into the final 26).
If our thoughts are towards Lingard, we must also remember that we would be competing to get his signature with the Ironmongers. I do know that the Spammers fear us pinching their star loanee. He is the same age as Kane, so he still has some petrol left in the tank for quite a few seasons…
What Spurs have in their favour is that United want (speculation) Winks, and he could be used in a swap deal.
Phillips believes that Lingard could be a shrewd procurement for us, insisting that Nuno could be the man to get the best out of him.
When Phillips was asked by the well-known publication, Football insider, he commented, “I think it will be a brilliant move for him if they can do it. It’s all new at Spurs. They’re in transition with the new manager coming. We’ve seen what Nuno did at Wolves in terms of the way he likes to play and get the best out of his players. I don’t see him staying at Man United. They might like him to stay, but I don’t see him being guaranteed week in, week out football and he’s got used to that at West Ham. You don’t want to go back there and just sit on the bench after tasting what he did. So I think Tottenham would be a fantastic move for him. He’s top class when he wants to be, the type of player that Nuno probably likes that can get in the box and score goals.”
To be honest, I am not sure. Yes, he had a good season with the wet wipes, but it is never as simple as that, but saying that, the same could be said about any player that comes to us. It will all depend on how Nuno can work his magic. Nevertheless, at the end of the day, it is about team effort and if the team that Nuno employees can put us back into the Champions League, then whatever player we purchase will be the right ones. Fail, and the opposite can be said.
