According to a report from Metro, Jarrod Bowen has turned down offers from both Liverpool and Newcastle United, with reports suggesting that the Englishman is on the verge of finalizing a new seven-year contract with West Ham United.
Bowen’s Impressive Run Of Form For West Ham United This Season
Bowen is enjoying an impressive run of form at London Stadium as he has produced some impressive displays for his side in the attacking third. The 26-year-old has found the back of the net on five occasions and created two assists in nine appearances across all competitions. His outstanding displays this season have earned Bowen a call-up to the England national team. Gareth Southgate has included the player in his squad for the upcoming fixtures against Australia and Italy this week.
The English forward has been consistent and reliable for the Hammers as evidenced by his average of 2.9 shots, 0.6 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per game in the Premier League. He has also been efficient when distributing the ball to his teammates after completing 75.3% of his attempted passes in the English top flight (stats via whoscored).
Should Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp Look For Alternatives?
Liverpool fans were buzzing with anticipation when rumors swirled about the club’s interest in Jarrod Bowen. The West Ham winger’s impressive performances had not gone unnoticed, and many saw him as a potential addition to Jurgen Klopp’s dynamic attacking lineup.
Jarrod Bowen’s rise in the Premier League has been a compelling narrative. He has been instrumental in West Ham’s resurgence under David Moyes and has shown his versatility by excelling in various attacking roles.
Bowen’s ability to play across the forward line would have given Klopp tactical flexibility. He could have been deployed on either flank or even as an attacking midfielder, offering different dimensions to Liverpool’s attacking approach.
Now that Jarrod Bowen seems set to extend his stay at West Ham, Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool’s recruitment team may need to explore alternative options to strengthen the squad. While the summer transfer window is several months away, it’s crucial to identify players who can enhance Liverpool’s attacking depth and quality. Especially, considering Mohamed Salah’s uncertain future at Anfield with increasing interest from the Saudi Pro League.
