Everton linked with Jesse Lingard transfer swoop
It’s safe to say Everton are in a bad run of form at the moment having lost five and drawn two of their seven previous league games, scoring just four goals and conceding 13 in the process.
Injuries have played their part in Everton’s poor run of form in recent weeks with the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina all out of action.
With a tough test against Liverpool next up for the Toffees in midweek, it seems as though the Everton fans could do with a bit of good news to get some positive vibes around the club again, and it seems that they may have exactly that.

Given Everton’s dismal run of form, perhaps it would be better for the Merseyside club if they managed to sign the England international on a loan deal in the upcoming January window with an obligation to sign him permanently in the summer.
This backs up why Lingard was previously labelled as being an “intelligent” player by former United teammate Rio Ferdinand.
Would you take Jesse Lingard at Everton?
This shows just how much of an attacking impact he can have on a team when he’s given the chance to play regularly, which he hasn’t been at Old Trafford this season with no starts in the Premier League.
With that in mind, Marcel Brands should definitely explore the option of signing Lingard in January to see if he can add a bit of extra attacking power to Rafa Benitez’s side for the second half of the season.
As he did at West Ham, there is a possibility that he could bethe catalyst that sparks a revival at Goodison Park and fixes the issue of their turbulent form. Certainly, with the qualities in his locker, he can do that under Benitez and turn their season around.
