According to The Athletic, Liverpool might be about to repeat their knack of finding gems from unexpected areas, as the Reds eye Jarrod Bowen.

The West Ham forward – who earns £96,154-a-week in east London – is said to be on Jürgen Klopp’s radar.

However, the Irons would want £35m for the man they paid £20m for back in January 2020.

Interestingly, if Bowen does end up at Anfield, there’s already someone he knows well and admires in Liverpool’s squad.

Jarrod Bowen rates Andy Robertson highly

While at Hull, Bowen shared a pitch with Andy Robertson on six occasions, before the Scot left for Merseyside in a deal worth £8m.

Both took unconventional routes to the top, via the lower leagues, and Bowen once made a point of that while heaping praise on Robertson too.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the West Ham forward said: “It’s a case of people being willing to take a risk or a chance on players, isn’t it?

“Liverpool took a risk on Robbo and people wrote him off when he signed, but look at him now, one of the best left backs in the world.”

Would Jarrod Bowen be a good signing?

Bowen is not exactly the kind of player you’d expect Liverpool to be signing.

However, at this point, we’re confident that Klopp and Michael Edwards know what they’re doing.

Eyebrows were raised when Liverpool signed Gini Wijnaldum and Xherdan Shaqiri from relegated clubs in Newcastle and Stoke respectively.

However, both have played their part under Klopp.

In our view, after so many successful signings, the Liverpool fans should put faith in Klopp and Edwards in regards to transfer activity.
