Jarrod Bowen is imminently about to cost West Ham another £1 million

West Ham United will imminently be forced to pay a further £1 million to Hull City, when Jarrod Bowen earns his fifth cap for England.

That’s according to a report from The Athletic who claim that the Hammers paid Hull an initial £14 million for the 25-year-old in January 2020.

There were performance related add-ons included in the deal – one of which being a £1 million payment due should Bowen reach at least five caps for England.

Bowen was the brilliant for the Hammers last term, and was one of the club’s two best players alongside Declan Rice.

David Moyes is clearly a huge fan of Jarrod Bowen – he is one of the first names on the West Ham manager’s team-sheet.

England boss Gareth Southgate has obviously been impressed by the ex-Hull City ace as well…

West Ham imminently set to pay Jarrod Bowen clause

The Athletic claim that when the 25-year-old earns his fifth cap for England, the Hammers will have to pay Hull City a further £1 million.

Bowen earned four caps for the Three Lions back in June after a scintillating 2022/23 campaign.

He received a call-up to Southgate’s England squad again for the upcoming Nation’s League games against Italy and Germany, in spite of his really poor form so far this season.

So it seems to be only a matter of time before he earns his his fifth cap for his country.

The total fee that West Ham could end up paying for Bowen is believed to be around £22 million, according to a report from The Guardian.

We have to say, that is an absolute bargain, considering what the 25-year-old has done for the Hammers over the past couple of years.

It must be said though, Jarrod Bowen has been in really poor for West Ham so far this season. He should think himself lucky that Southgate named him in his England squad again. And he will need to raise his levels massively if he is to be a regular feature for England over the next few years.

What concerns us though, is his form for West Ham. He’s still got plenty of credit in the bank from the last two seasons. However, Jarrod Bowen needs to start producing the goods sooner rather than later for West Ham, if we are to enjoy a successful 2022/23 campaign.
