The 30-year-old attacking midfielder had a frankly failing season for Nottingham Forest (0 goals, 0 assists in 17 Premier League matches) and has become a free agent. Prior to joining Nottingham Forest, Lingard spent seven seasons with Manchester United (with a loan spell at West Ham United in the 2020/21 season). For the first team of Man United, he played 149 matches in the Premier League and scored 20 goals. Lingard's best season was the 2017/18 championship (8 goals and 6 assists in 33 Premier League matches).
Lingard also represented the England national team in 32 matches, scoring six goals. He participated in the 2018 World Cup, playing six matches and scoring one goal.
List of latest Jesse Lingard transfer odds
According to bookmakers, the midfielder may continue his career in Saudi Arabia. The option of moving to the Persian Gulf country has the lowest Jesse Lingard next club odds. Additionally, there is a possibility that this former Manchester United player will move to the USA and sign a contract with one of the MLS clubs. Let's have a look at all the Jesse Lingard transfer odds options.
|Jesse Lingard next club||Bet365 odds|
|Any Saudi Arabian Team||1.67|
|Any MLS Team||3.75|
Any Saudi Arabian Team
In late June, when asked about his next club, Jesse Lingard stated that he would consider an offer from Saudi Arabia and praised the development pace of the local league. Furthermore, the number of rumours about the midfielder's imminent move increased when Steven Gerrard took charge of Al-Ettifaq. Naturally, one of the contenders to sign Lingard is Al-Nassr, because he is well acquainted with Cristiano Ronaldo from their time together at Manchester United. If Jesse decides to go to Saudi Arabia, he will most likely choose between these two clubs.
Any MLS Team
Another likely destination for Jesse Lingard is one of the MLS clubs. However, the focus here is primarily on David Beckham's Inter Miami. It must be acknowledged that the rumours of the midfielder's transfer to Inter are not unfounded - Jesse is currently training with the club this summer, keeping himself in shape. Considering that the Miami FC has signed Lionel Messi, it is quite possible that the squad will soon be joined by other well-known European football players.
Another option for the player in the MLS is DC United that is managed by Wayne Rooney. As with Cristiano Ronaldo, good relations are at the forefront - Lingard also played for Manchester United alongside the former England national team forward.
According to bookmakers, Turkish clubs, including Beşiktaş, may also enter the race for Lingard, although they are significantly inferior to the options from Saudi Arabia and the United States. Beşiktaş is mentioned as one of the possible Jesse Lingard next club options. Local clubs have vast experience in inviting players aged over 30 whose contracts have expired, so it is easy to believe in Beşiktaş' interest in the former Manchester United midfielder.
However, Lingard has not expressed his desire to necessarily stay in Europe to play in the Champions League, so it is pretty hard to believe in his move to the shores of the Bosporus.
Regarding Jesse Lingard's potential move to Fenerbahçe, we can say almost the same things as about Beşiktaş, with the only difference – Fenerbahçe aims to strengthen their attacking potential this summer and reclaim the championship title, which the club has not won since the 2013/14 season. The acquisition of Bosnian player Edin Dzeko only partially fulfills this need, so the FC surely plans further certain moves in the transfer market. However, it is hard to disagree with bookmakers giving odds of 15.00 for Lingard's move to Fenerbahçe – at the moment Turkish clubs are far from being favourites in the race for the football player.
Bookmakers simply do not believe that Jesse Lingard will remain in the Premier League. In their opinion, West Ham has the best chance of signing the midfielder, but such a scenario is estimated at odds of 17.00.
It seems as though the player needs to leave England for the first time in his career and restart it in another country. Nevertheless, we note that Lingard played for West Ham in the 2020/21 season on loan from Manchester United, and had a fairly decent season with 9 goals and 5 assists in 16 matches.
