An extremely worrying claim has been made about Jarrod Bowen by a West Ham United reporter.

Sean Whetstone – a reporter with close links to David Sullivan – has claimed that there is uncertainty regarding the future of Jarrod Bowen at West Ham.

And that’s because the Hammers have been unable to reach an agreement with the 26-year-old forward’s representatives about a new contract, having been in talks for the last six months.

It was reported a couple of months back that West Ham could be prepared to offer the left-footed right winger around £120k-a-week in order for him to commit his future to the club.

David Moyes brought Bowen to the London Stadium from Hull City in January 2020, and his current deal expires in the summer of 2025.

The hard-working forward has been a huge hit in East London, with 42 goals and 32 assists in 161 appearances to his name (Transfermarkt). With Declan Rice having left now, he really is West Ham’s talisman.

However, with just two years remaining on his deal now, getting him tied down to a new contract will be absolutely vital for the club…

Extremely worrying claim made about Jarrod Bowen by West Ham reporter

Sean Whetstone has suggested that there is somewhat of a standoff between the Hammers and Bowen’s representatives right now, regarding talks over a new deal for the 26-year-old.

The reporter close to Sullivan highlighted how West Ham are desperate to get Bowen to put pen to paper on a new contract as soon as possible:

After so many good signings this summer, tying Jarrod down to a new long-term deal really would be the cherry on the cake for the Hammers.

The 26-year-old is such a vital player for West Ham, and he proved his unbelievable quality once again on Saturday away at Brighton.

The big concern for West Ham fans is that if Jarrod Bowen doesn’t sign a new contract by January, the club will definitely have to start thinking about selling him.

That doesn’t even bear thinking about, so the Hammers can’t afford to let it happen. Bowen should be on a salary in line with the highest paid players at the club. And West Ham owners just need to pay him what he deserves, it’s as simple as that.
