Liverpool and Newcastle United are reportedly interested in West Ham United winger Jarrod Bowen.
When Bowen moved from Hull City to the London Stadium for £18 million in January 2020, it was thought that West Ham had overspent on a player who had never played in the Premier League.
However, the playmaker has established himself as an important player for the Hammers, scoring 45 goals and providing 33 assists in 166 games across all competitions.
In addition to scoring the game-winning goal in the Europa Conference League final last season, the 26-year-old has earned four caps for England.
Beginning 2023-24 with five goals and two assists, he has earned selection for the Three Lions’ future matches against Australia and Italy.
Off the field, Bowen’s long-term future is uncertain due to the fact that he has less than two years left on his deal with the East Londoners.
According to talkSPORT, conversations have been ongoing behind the scenes, with West Ham obviously eager to extend Bowen’s contract in the long run.
Nonetheless, the same report adds that Bowen and his representatives are not in a rush to sign a new contract at this time, which has ordered clubs to take notice.
Liverpool and Newcastle are reported to be monitoring the situation in preparation for a possible approach for Bowen in January or the summer.
Bowen’s agents are reportedly open to seeing what offers come his way, with both the Merseyside giants and the Magpies aiming for Champions League status for next season.
Jurgen Klopp’s squad could use a versatile attacker, which Bowen could fit after playing on the right wing and down the center this season.
Meanwhile, Eddie Howe would regard Bowen in a similar light, the Englishman having made a habit of recruiting players who can play several roles as the club strives to meet FFP rules.
West Ham, on the other hand, might qualify for next season’s Champions League, as the team is only three points behind the top four in the Premier League league and has already qualified.
