Liverpool Interested in Jarrod Bowen
Jarrod Bowen to Liverpool: An Ever-Present Consistent Performer
Liverpool are in search of a fresh attacking option for this upcoming season, and one of their targets is West Ham United striker Jarrod Bowen. The attacker has caught the eye of the Liverpool manager thanks to his successful season for the Hammers. He was ever-present in the Premier League last season as he played in all 38 games. Therefore, this durability and consistency will have no doubt alerted Jurgen Klopp and his scouting department.
Meanwhile, his eight goals and five assists were crucial in West Ham attaining a deserving Europa League place. But it could have been better as the team were in the Champions League places for much of the season.
However, according to The Athletic Journalist James Pearce, a potential move for Bowen very much depends on Liverpool selling on players. This would include fellow attacking players Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri.
Jurgen Klopp Impressed by Striker’s Qualities
Liverpool have been drawn to Bowen for his driving runs with the ball in dangerous areas. Also, his good work on the channels with clever runs from the right-wing while cutting in on his left foot with success is a trait that the club like.
As noted by the report, Bowen possesses all the qualities Liverpool are on the lookout for. This includes his age, style of play and ability to play in all positions along the front line, and his signing would increase competition for places in the team. It would especially give Liverpool further options to their ‘Red Arrows’ attacking threat.
Bowen signed for West Ham for £18 million in January 2020. This could rise to £25 million based on various variables. Therefore, the East London outfit would look to recuperate that amount and more to relinquish one of their star performers from the last campaign.
Previously, he was a hit at Hull City with three consecutive seasons scoring double figures in the Championship. He scored 22 goals in the 2018/19 season which really put him on the map.
