According to the reports from Sunday Mirror, as cited by Leicestershire Live, Leeds United are set to lose the battle for the signature of Jarrod Bowen. It is being said that Leicester City are on the verge of winning the race for the Hull City winger. Along with the Whites, Southampton and Newcastle United have also been linked with him.
The report states, ”Leicester are pushing hardest to land him next month, and the King Power looks his likely destination.”
Bowen has been linked with the Whites in the past, and now it seems that the winger will move to the Premier League instead of staying in the Championship.
Leeds United though are in a good position to get there themselves by next season as they have a 10 point lead over the third-place spot. However, there is still a lot to play for, and Bielsa and Co would know that, especially after what happened last season.
As for Bowen, he was unlikely going to stick around with the Tigers for long. Bowen was named in the Championship team of the year last season, and he has been firing on all cylinders this campaign as well. The English winger currently has 17 goals and three assists to his name in all competitions this season. Last season, he had managed 22 goals in all competitions, and it seems like he will surpass that mark easily this campaign.
Why would Bowen have been an excellent addition at Elland Road?
It would have been a significant coup for the Whites if they got hold of the winger. Bowen can play on either of the flanks or as an attacking midfielder. He usually starts on the right-wing and plays as an inverted winger, where he often tries to drift inside instead of hugging the bylines.
The English winger has the sublime skills and pace to go past defenders but what makes him stand out is his ability to score goals from in and around the box. His decision making in the final third seems to be spot on, and that is why he regularly comes up with attacking returns.
The Whites, on the other hand, are often guilty of not taking their chances because of poor decision making in the attacking third. Bowen would have been a great option to have, and he would have been a signing who could have been successful even in the Premier League.
A big miss for the Whites?
Last season, it was Daniel James for the Whites, and this season it seems to be Bowen who has gotten away from their grasps. However, the James transfer was a much closer affair as he had more or less confirmed his signing at Elland Road before Swansea pulled the plug on the deal. Nevertheless, the Whites showed that they have enough talent to cope without him and they should be alright even though Bowen is now close to moving to the Foxes.
