West Ham have made departing Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard an offer to return to the London Stadium.
The 29-year-old officially becomes a free agent on 1 July when his contract expires at Old Trafford.
Lingard had a successful time on loan with the Hammers at the end of the 2020-21 season and scored nine goals in 16 Premier League starts.
But he was denied another loan spell in January as United refused to deal with a rival for a European place.
Meanwhile, West Ham are set to confirm the signing of goalkeeper Alphonse Areola from Paris St-Germain.
Terms have been agreed with the French Ligue 1 champions for Areola, who spent last season on loan with the Hammers and will cost around £10.5m.
Areola impressed last term when he was in goal throughout West Ham’s run to the Europa League semi-final, where they were beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt.
It is anticipated the 29-year-old will battle for the number one slot with established first-choice Lucasz Fabianski, who signed a one-year contract extension in May.
It is the start of what is promising to be a busy period for the Hammers, who are flying to Scotland on Monday for their pre-season training camp at St Andrews.
The club will learn their Europa Conference League play-off opponents when the draw is made by UEFA on 1 August.
