Jesse Lingard 'has offers from 27 clubs across world football' as shock move touted
| Last updated
Former Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard reportedly has offers from as many as 27 clubs as he continues to search for his next career move in football.
The 31-year-old is currently a free agent after parting ways with Nottingham Forest last summer, following an unsuccessful spell at the City Ground where he failed to score or assist in any of his 17 Premier League appearances for the club.
Despite the 32-times capped England international being a free agent for the last eight months, he is not short of offers currently.
According to the Daily Mail, Lingard has offers from up to 27 clubs across world football, with a shock move to South Korean side FC Seoul the latest to emerge.
Speaking on a recent episode of It's All Kicking Off Transfer Week podcast, reporter Sami Mokbel offered an update on the future of Lingard, where he said: "The news broke late last night about a potential move for Jesse Lingard to South Korea with FC Seoul. So as news broke, I tried to get some information, tried to make some calls on it.
"It was clarified to me and verified to me that FC Seoul are indeed interested in Jesse Lingard, that they've offered him a two-year deal to go and play over in south-east Asia.
"But then it was also sort of said to me that just to hold back a little bit on saying that it is a done deal, because he's got up to 26 other offers, I'm told, from various clubs all over the world who are interested in taking on Jesse Lingard."
As well as Seoul, Serie A side Lazio are also named as one of the teams among the growing list of suitors, as he looks to secure his next contract within the professional game.
