According to a recent report from The Guardian, West Ham United have inserted a relegation release clause in Jarrod Bowen’s contract after he finalised his move from Hull City. The Hammers signed him for a fee which is known to be around £22m. Bowen’s release clause is set at £20m if David Moyes’ men go down a division.
An expected agreement between both the parties
It is isn’t surprising to see both parties agreeing on a relegation release clause as Bowen wouldn’t want to head back to the Championship after proving himself there. £20m seems to be a fair price in today’s market, and if the Hammers go down, then one can expect quite a few clubs to look at that clause to get Bowen away from the London club. Crystal Palace might still want him after missing out in January, and he could be a decent addition there. We believe that West Ham are unlikely to keep hold of him if they go down.
The Hammers are sitting in one of the relegation spots after managing a draw against Brighton recently. They had a two goal lead twice in that game, but they threw it away to draw 3-3. Things look dire for Moyes, and he will hope that Bowen can come to his rescue soon.
How can Bowen contribute at West Ham?
The winger has been in terrific form over the last two seasons for Hull City. Bowen had managed 17 goals in the English second tier this season, and he was named in the league’s team of the year in the last campaign.
Bowen is a versatile winger who can play in different roles in the attacking third. He usually operates from the right, but instead of hugging the byline, he likes to move into the central areas. He has the pace and dribbling skills to go past players but what has stood out is his ability to contribute in the attacking third and score goals.
Bowen packs a punch with his left foot, and he can unleash a powerful shot from in and around the opposition penalty box. He can also link up play well, and one might even see him play off Sebastien Haller as a secondary striker.
However, West Ham would be asking too much from him if they want to see Bowen pull off a rescue act single-handedly in this relegation battle. The player might need some time to settle in, and the competitive level of the Premier League might trouble him initially. The talent is there in him, and he will undoubtedly be a success at this level. Until then, the current players which Moyes has at his disposal – the likes of Felipe Anderson, Haller, Michail Antonio, Mark Noble and others need to stand up and help their team get out of this relegation scrap.
