West Ham 'definitely' interested in £61.2m attacking duo at the London Stadium
David Moyes has already made two signings in the shape of Rennes centre-back Nayef Aguerd and goalkeeper Alphonse Areola and he is now eyeing up moves for the attacking duo.
What’s the latest news involving Danjuma and Lingard?
West Ham might have secured another season of European football following their seventh-place finish, but the Hammers were the second-lowest scorers in the top-eight and need attacking reinforcements.
Therefore, Moyes is hoping to improve his frontline and provide extra competition for the likes of Jarrod Bowen, Said Benrahma and Michail Antonio.
Meanwhile, Sky Sports believe that Lingard, who enjoyed an exceptional loan spell at the London Stadium 18 months ago, remains on Moyes’ radar, with West Ham making an offer to his representatives.
Crook confirmed the club’s interest in the pair but doesn’t expect both players to end up signing for the Hammers.
What did Crook say about Danjuma and Lingard?
He told GIVEMESPORT: “They’re definitely both targets. I’m not convinced they’ll sign them both.
“I think Lingard will need to lower his wage demands; I don’t see West Ham paying him £150,000 per-week, I’m slightly surprised there’s not a bigger clamour for him bearing in mind he’s a free agent, but I think it’s due to those wage demands.”

How did Danjuma and Lingard perform last season?
The two players could hardly have had more contrasting seasons, with Danjuma shining in his debut La Liga season, while Lingard’s return to his boyhood club was one to forget.
Meanwhile, Lingard was on the pitch for less than 600 minutes and while one of his three goal contributions was a crucial assist for Cristiano Ronaldo against Danjuma’s side in the group stages of Europe’s elite competition, it was generally a miserable campaign for the England star.
