David Moyes is allegedly concerned that he might lose West Ham United star Jarrod Bowen in the summer transfer window with Liverpool sniffing around.
West Ham manager David Moyes brought Bowen to the London Stadium from Hull City in January 2020 for around £20 million (BBC).
And the powerful, hard-working attacker has been a huge hit with the Hammers, bagging 18 goals and 20 assists in 85 games (Transfermarkt).
It’s little wonder why Liverpool want to sign Bowen. Not only does he possess real quality but he is also an incredibly hard worker – something that Klopp demands from all of his players.
And it seems as though there is genuine concern in East London that the 25-year-old could be Anfield-bound.
David Moyes worried that West Ham ace could make summer transfer to Liverpool
The Times claim that the Hammers are worried about the Reds submitting a summer bid for Bowen that could be very hard to turn down.
The 25-year-old is under contract with West Ham until the summer of 2025. So if Liverpool are to sign the former Hull City ace, they will need to submit a massive offer.
The Hammers surely won’t sell Bowen for anything less than £60 million in the current market. If the Reds come knocking with that kind of offer for Jarrod though, the West Ham owners may find it very hard to refuse.
All we can hope for is that the Hammers owners dig their heels in and actually sign some top-class players during this window and the one in the summer.
That would prove to the likes of Bowen and Declan Rice that we mean business and are a club that can match their ambitions.
The January and summer transfer windows will be vitally important for West Ham as Moyes continues to try and build on the foundations that he has already laid at the London Stadium.
Losing someone like Jarrod Bowen in the summer is unfathomable. It doesn’t bear thinking about, certainly if we have any real hopes of finishing inside the Champions League places anytime soon.
Liverpool signing Bowen in the summer would be a huge body blow to West Ham and would cancel out so much of the good work already done by Moyes in East London.
The 25-year-old being linked with a move to Anfield is certainly a worry for the fans. And judging by the Times’ report, it’s a huge concern for the Hammers hierarchy as well.
