Liverpool: West Ham player transfer updates

According to reports, Liverpool is contemplating a late bid for West Ham United’s Jarrod Bowen, but only if one of two outcomes occurs before September 1.

Where did Jarrod Bowen originate?

Bowen was born in Leominster, Herefordshire, but moved to the Premier League and the London Stadium from Hull City in 2020, where he has since become an integral member of David Moyes’ first team with 162 appearances.

The England international still has two years remaining on his contract, but after becoming the Irons’ co-leading scorer alongside Said Benrahma last season, he has attracted the attention of FSG and Jurgen Klopp, and not for the first time.

Dean Jones, a transfer insider, confirmed that the Merseyside club was “keeping an eye” on the 26-year-old’s situation, and despite the fact that a deal did not materialize at the time, they are now contemplating a second attempt.

Are the Reds interested in Jarrod Bowen?

Bowen has reportedly been “listed” by Liverpool as a potential transfer target should Mohamed Salah depart before Friday’s deadline.

Klopp reportedly regards the attacker as a “ideal replacement” for his veteran, who is being courted by Saudi Pro League club Al-Ittahad, who are reportedly prepared to offer €150 million (£128 million) to pry him away.

Anfield executives are “adamant” that they don’t want to sell their prized asset and have made their position plain, but it doesn’t appear that will prevent a potential suitor from attempting to acquire him.

Jarrod Bowen has scored how many goals for West Ham?

Bowen has amassed 74 contributions (42 goals and 32 assists) in 161 appearances since joining the Hammers, a performance that has been deemed “outstanding” by journalist Josh Bunting. While nobody could ever truly replace Salah, Moyes’ star will be one of the nearest to him.

Last season, the attacker, who is sponsored by Adidas, recorded a total of 159 crosses and 73 attempts, both of which were the highest in his squad, per FBRef, demonstrating his desire to create opportunities and find the back of the net.

The winner of the Europa Conference League, who earns £60,000 per week, is also a versatile player with the ability to play in seven different positions, including all across the frontline and three roles in the midfield, which is another quality that the manager will have been attracted to.

Moreover, Bowen shares the same agent, PLG, as Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson, and Nathaniel Phillips, so this existing connection that his agent has with the club could give chiefs a small advantage should they decide to pursue a deal in the final days of the transfer window, and it may be worth keeping an eye on.
