Jarrod Bowen is a West Ham target, according to reliable West Ham insider EXWHUEmployee. Talking on The West Ham Way podcast on Phoenix FM (Wednesday 8th May), EXWHUEmployee told listeners that West Ham have been checking on Bowen.
Many clubs are chasing the in-demand Hull City winger after another impressive season. But West Ham could be about to make a summer move to win the race for Bowen.
Cardiff City tried to sign Bowen in January and Leicester City might make a summer move (according to The Daily Mail). Cardiff’s £12m bid was rejected while Leicester are mulling over a £15m swoop.
Bowen was regularly scouted last season. And after Hull’s mid-table Championship finish, he might have played his last game for the Tigers.
Who is Jarrod Bowen?
Bowen is a winger who prefers to start on the right and cut inside onto his left foot. Over the last two seasons, Bowen has proven why he is a quality player at Championship level.
In the 2017/18 season, he made his Hull breakthrough and scored 14 goals. This season, Bowen has eclipsed this tally. With 22 goals, the former Hereford man ranks as one of the top scorers in the second-tier.
The 22-year-old is a lively young winger who could prove to be a shrewd purchase for the summer. West Ham are looking at Bowen, according to Ex, but face widespread competition.
