Manchester United are reportedly exploring the feasibility of a swap deal involving Jesse Lingard and Declan Rice with West Ham United.
Lingard has played a key role in West Ham's charge for a top-four finish since his loan move from Old Trafford in January, bagging six goals and four assists in eight Premier League appearances for David Moyes's team.
However, The Athletic reports that the Red Devils could instead go down a different route, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a keen admirer of Rice and would be interested in striking a swap deal for Lingard's international teammate.
West Ham manager Moyes has affirmed that he would expect a nine-figure sum for Rice, though, which suggests that United would still have to fork out a hefty amount of money, even if the inclusion of Lingard does drive the price down.
Rice was an ever-present lynchpin in the Hammers' midfield before sustaining a knee injury, but the 22-year-old will hope to return in time for this summer's European Championships.
