According to a recent report by Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a move to secure the services of Jarrod Bowen from Hull City during this January transfer window. The same report also goes on to state that Spurs had sent scouts to catch the youngster in action during every match he played for the Tigers last month.
The North London outfit are in dire need of more homegrown players so recruiting Bowen will ease their problems with regards to meeting that criteria while also help them build for a bigger and better future at White Hart Lane.
The 22-year-old winger has already put in some majestic displays at the KCOM Stadium during the course of this campaign. He has scored ten goals while grabbing three assists in 25 matches for Hull City this term in the EFL Championship.
Bowen joined the Tigers from Hereford United in the summer of 2014. Since then, he has managed to make his way up the ranks and graduate from the Hull City Academy before finally breaking out as a first-team star for the Championship outfit. At 22, the Leominster-born talent has already shown glimpses of his massive potential, and he could turn out to be a shrewd acquisition for Spurs in the long-run.
Bowen is highly versatile and can operate anywhere across the frontline. However, he is primarily a right winger. The English prospect is quite quick and agile, can dribble with the ball out of tight areas and has a knack for scoring goals on a consistent basis. He will fit in well under Mauricio Pochettino’s stewardship at North London, but the jury is still out on whether he can cope with life in the Premier League.
Tottenham does not have too many natural wingers in their current squad, so the addition of Bowen will be a welcome one as his pace and versatility would come in handy when Pochettino’s squad is stretched to the fullest due to injuries, suspensions or fixture congestion.
Moreover, he will add some needed depth to the Tottenham squad that has often fallen off the pace during the latter stages of a competition. So Bowen will be a terrific asset for Spurs if they can pull the deal off this month ahead of a busy second half of this campaign.
