Burnley Interested In Highly Rated Hull City Midfielder: Good Fit To Dyche’s Master Plan?

Hull City’s highly rated attacking midfielder, Jarrod Bowen is being scouted by an array of Premier League clubs and Burnley is one of the interested parties. The 21-year-old scored the first and created the second for Nouha Dicko in the club’s 2-1 FA Cup Fifth Round win on Saturday.

The Tigers manager, Nigel Adkins is reluctant to let go of the academy starlet. He was quoted, “You just don’t sell him. We’re not looking to sell him.”

“We’re not looking to sell Bowen, we want to build things at City. We have to keep looking to the future and we don’t want to let young players go.

Bowen started his professional career with Hereford United where he broke into the first team at a young age of just 16. He was signed up to the City Academy and Bowen worked his way up the club’s youth ranks. His current contract stretches until the summer of 2020 and is a first-team regular under Adkins. He has racked up 12 goals this season in 29 all around appearances.

Having showcased his class in the second division maybe the time is ripe to make the transition into top-flight football.

However, we have seen in the past, a plethora of Championship players have struggled to adjust to the monumental talent differential between the two leagues. Players like Dele Alli are rare cases who flourish only under the support of the managers. At just 21, Bowen still has the years on his side to firmly plant his feet into English football.

Burnley have seen a dip in their form in recent times and are on a 7-game winless run. They have lost the last three against Liverpool, Crystal Palace and Manchester United and have dropped below Leicester City in the 8th spot of the points table. Sean Dyche has instilled a defensive structured into the side which has allowed to be so successful this season.

He added Georges-Kevin Nkoudou on loan as a rotational wide man but does not have a second option for Jeff Hendrick who plays in the shadow striker role.

Bowen has played on the right wing for the majority of the season under Adkins but can appear on the other side and centrally as well. Dyche’s side has struggled to find the back of the net with just 19 in the league – a record just better than West Brom and Brighton & Hove Albion. Maybe Bowen’s arrival will help their case in making a better offensive threat.
