Jesse Lingard’s superb form for West Ham would have alerted European giants Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan.
Everyone wants a piece of the Manchester United star, who has loaned an absolute ball to the London stadium – already finding the net eight times for the Hammers.
The Manchester United lender’s latest exploits saw him strike twice in a 3-2 win over Leicester on Sunday.
No player has scored more top-level goals than Lingard since making the temporary move to West Ham.
The east London side may consider making Lingard’s move permanent, however, the Red Devils may well want their playmaker to return now.
But if United agree to let the midfielder go, it looks like West Ham will have competition from some big European clubs as well.
The aforementioned trio take a closer look at the 28-year-old, whose current contract at Old Trafford expires in the summer of 2022.

ESPN claim Lingard has yet to make a decision about his future, but his preference is to play for a Champions League team next season.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be keenly interested in how Lingard performs for the remainder of the season, with Gary Neville suggesting he will want Lingard to return next season.
But, according to another United legend – Andy Cole – Lingard’s time at Old Trafford should be over.
“The opportunity for him to be on loan at West Ham came at a fantastic time. He took it with both hands, ”Cole told The Sunday Session.
“Now Manchester United have a decision to make. Take it back or sell it in the summer for a little more money than expected?
“I think if I was Manchester United I would move him. And if I were Jesse, I would like to go play games. Absolutely.”
