According to a report from the Sun, West Ham are weighing up a £15 million January swoop for Hull City ace Jarrod Bowen.

The 22-year-old has been on fire for the Tigers this season, racking up 17 goals in 24 appearances in all competitions.

And he would be an excellent addition for the Hammers.

Bowen can play anywhere along the front-line. And the forward seems to have all of the attributes needed to succeed in the Premier League. He is quick, possesses superb technique and has a real eye for goal.

The Sun claims that West Ham are keen on Bowen, and are weighing up a £15 million bid for the Hull man in January.

The British red top claims that Tottenham are also interested in signing the 22-year-old, however. So the Hammers won’t have things all their own way.


The Express reported back in September that the Humberside outfit value Bowen at around £20 million. So it will be interesting to see whether common ground can be reached between the two clubs.

Our view

Bowen would be an incredibly exciting addition for West Ham.

For too long now, the Hammers have  signed players well past their best, on the downward curve of their career. So bringing in the Hull ace would really buck that trend.

And if the Tigers do not accept £15 million for the 22-year-old, West Ham should not think twice about bidding £20 million or even more for a player who would guarantee them goals and assists over the next decade.
