West Brom boss Bilic targets deal for Man Utd midfielder Lingard

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is interesting West Brom.

West Ham are believed to be weighing up a double swoop for him and fellow England international Phil Jones from the Red Devils.

And Leicester City, Newcastle and Everton have also been linked with Lingard.

The Independent reports promotion-chasing West Brom are ready to fight it out for the star's signature if they secure a Premier League return.

Slaven Bilic's side moved back into top spot in the Championship, and five points clear in the promotion race, after easing to a 2-0 win over Derby last night.

And with just four games left to play, it appears the Croatian has already identified Lingard as one of his top transfer targets.
