A Jarrod Bowen to Liverpool update has been provided by the journalist who was first to break the Lucas Paqueta to West Ham United transfer.

West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen has begun the 2023/24 Premier League campaign in fine form, with three goals and an assist to his name in the first five games.

He already looks like he’s trying to get in behind more this season – something that will undoubtedly be attracting the very top clubs in the league.

Liverpool have already been linked with a move to sign Bowen next summer, as a potential replacement for Mohamed Salah.

And it seems like there’s definitely a chance that the left-footed right winger could swap East London for Merseyside next year…

Journalist who was first to break Paqueta to West Ham transfer drops worrying Jarrod Bowen update

Ben Jacobs beat every other journalist to the news that Lucas Paqueta was a transfer target for the Hammers last summer.

And now the CBS journalist has told Give Me Sport how Bowen would be a good fit for Liverpool:

“Liverpool will have already had a list of Salah replacements long before they knew about the Saudi interest because that’s how they plan. That’s how they work and how the dynamic is. I think that Bowen is a good fit for Liverpool. He will have seen Declan Rice leave and, in the same way that Rice had said at the World Cup that he was jealous of his colleagues playing Champions League football, I think that Bowen will now watch Rice go and play Champions League football and will get that same sense of jealousy, or ambition, whatever you want to call it. Because he does want to play Champions League football, and he knows he’s capable of it. He’s been a great servant to West Ham, but next summer might be the time, and let’s see whether the Liverpool links grow.”

The thing is, if Liverpool come in for Bowen, it may well be hard to keep hold of him.

However, the Reds will have to come with at least £60 or £70 million, if they really want to prise him away from the London Stadium.

The Hammers owners just have to do everything in their power to match the 26-year-old’s ambition and keep him at the club.

The update on Jarrod Bowen from Ben Jacobs is definitely a concerning one though.
