Jesse Lingard transfer news: Everton odds SLASHED with 'talks underway', West Ham, Newcastle and Tottenham in contention | The Sun

EVERTON have entered the race to sign former Manchester United star Jesse Lingard.

And bookmakers Betfair have responded by SLASHING their odds on the 29-year-old joining Frank Lampard at Goodison Park.

The Toffees were available at 20/1 on Friday morning but shortened dramatically to 9/4.

Everton's interest in Lingard comes shortly after the departure of fan-favourite Richarlison.

The Brazil international, 25, joined Tottenham on a five-year deal believed to be worth an initial £55million with a further £5m in add-ons.

Richarlison's departure leaves Everton in desperate need of attacking reinforcements.

The ECHO claim Lingard is being 'considered' as his direct replacement with talks already having taken place.

The report adds that staying in the North West might be of interest to the Warrington-born player.

And a free transfer would suit Everton to comply with their restrictive Financial Fair Play situation.

The England international is a free agent after his contract at Manchester United expired overnight.

Lingard made 232 appearances for the Red Devils, scoring 35 goals and providing 21 assists in all competitions.

He won the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Europa League during his 11-season spell at Old Trafford.

But a new challenge awaits.

West Ham remain his most likely destination at 6/4 having spent a successful loan spell at the London Stadium.

Lingard scored nine goals in 16 matches under David Moyes, who is understandably eager to strengthen his squad.

Newcastle are next in the betting market at 7/4 with manager Eddie Howe reportedly a big fan of the talented attacker.

The Toon failed in their attempts to sign Lingard in January but have cooled their interest because it's claimed he's after £200,000-per-week wages.

Busy Tottenham are offered at 25/1, although that price could soon shrink after claims from the Telegraph that Spurs are considering an approach.
