West Ham attacker Jarrod Bowen is allegedly a transfer target for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
Bowen joined West Ham from Hull City in January 2020 for around £20 million (BBC).
And the hard-working forward has gone on to establish himself as one of the most important players David Moyes Moyes has at his disposal at the London Stadium.
It’s little wonder why Liverpool boss Klopp is keen to sign him.
Bowen has bagged nine goals and 10 assists in 31 games in all competitions for West Ham so far this season (Transfermarkt).
The 25-year-old is hugely important to the Hammers and alongside Declan Rice, he is undoubtedly one of the first names on Moyes’s team-sheet.
The former Hull ace is under contract at the London Stadium until the summer of 2025. So West Ham hold all the cards. Should Liverpool come in with a mammoth bid for Jarrod in the summer though, our owners’ ambition will be tested to the limit.
And we think that the writing could be on the wall, considering who Bowen’s representatives are…
West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen shares agents with Liverpool duo
According to The Athletic, the 25-year-old Hammers star is represented by PLG who also have Reds stars Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson amongst their stable.
That may well prove to be a problem for West Ham at some point down the line.
Bowen seems to be ideally suited to Klopp’s setup at Anfield.
The 25-year-old has tremendous technical ability but most importantly, he does not stop working hard for his team.
The West Ham star makes tireless runs into the channels and is a brilliant dribbler. He is also incredibly strong when playing with his back to goal, what with his low centre-of gravity.
Whilst Bowen isn’t on the same level as Mohamed Salah, there are a lot of similarities between him and Liverpool’s Egyptian King.
Salah’s current deal at Anfield expires in the summer of 2023. So if Liverpool tie him down to a new long-term deal, they probably won’t need Bowen for at least another three years or so.
However, should the 29-year-old leave Liverpool this summer, then the West Ham fans should be really concerned about the possibility of Bowen leaving the London Stadium.
And Jarrod’s agents also representing Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson could end up being the deciding factor in him swapping the London Stadium for Anfield.
If Liverpool do want to sign Bowen though, they had better come knocking with, to use an old David Moyes saying, Bank of England money…
