West Ham United have agreed to sign goalkeeper Alphonse Areola from Paris Saint-Germain.
He will join the club permanently after making 17 appearances on loan this season, mainly playing in cup competitions as the understudy to Polish veteran Lukasz Fabianski.
Areola kept eight clean sheets last season including five in the Europa League as David Moyes guided the team all the way to the semi-finals.
The deal will represent West Ham’s second completed transfer of the window after signing Rennes centre-back Nayef Aguerd for £30m.
On the other hand, Lingard failed to consolidate the good form he showed following his loan spell with West Ham, as he was rarely picked by any of the three managers at United this season.
Watford’s Emmanuel Dennis has also been linked with the London Stadium outfit as they look to find someone to compete with Michail Antonio.
