Liverpool are apparently eyeing up a bid to sign West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen either in January or next summer.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is chasing the 24-year-old Hammers ace and wants to bring him to Anfield according to a report from the Independent.

In fact, it was suggested yesterday that Liverpool have already lodged a bid for Bowen.

The Sun quote the Liverpool Echo when suggesting that the Merseyside outfit made a £20 million bid for the former Hull City ace in the summer.

The problem is, the Liverpool Echo never said Liverpool made a £20 million bid for Bowen.

The Merseyside based newspaper simply reported that the Reds are keen to sign Bowen and highlighted how West Ham paid £20 million for his services 20 months ago.

Ridiculous Liverpool bid for Jarrod Bowen claim exposed

Things really started getting ridiculous as one media outlet after another started taking the false information from The Sun.


The Daily Star and the Daily Mail followed the Sun’s suit by simply copying their misleading information.

Twitter was then flooded with talk of Liverpool trying to sign Jarrod Bowen for just £20 million.

It really was just very poor, lazy journalism.

Why on earth would Liverpool even have the nerve to make a £20 million bid for Bowen! It makes no sense.

Claret and Hugh claimed yesterday that the 24-year-old is valued at around £70 million by West Ham.

Now, perhaps the Hammers owners won’t quite demand that much but there is certainly a case to be made for the attacker being worth at least £50 million.

Whilst Liverpool would undoubtedly be keen to sign Bowen, the truth is, no £20 million bid has been made for the Hammers star.
