West Ham boss David Moyes has claimed he wants to help get more out of Jarrod Bowen and stated he’s been a “terrific” signing for the club.
The Hammers signed the 23-year-old back during the January transfer window and his performances in the second half of last season helped them avoid relegation from the Premier League.
He is a left-footed winger that likes to operate from the right flank and he managed to cement his spot in Moyes’ best XI.
The English wide player managed one goal and four assists in his 13 appearances for West Ham, but Moyes is suggesting he should no wee looking to improve his goal output in the new campaign.
“Jarrod Bowen out of the Championship was always a gamble. Most boys take a little bit of time to settle, but Jarrod hit the ground running,” Moyes said in his press conference, as quoted by the club’s official website.
“His goalscoring record at Hull was always around 15 a season, so we want him to add to his count in the Premier League, but his enthusiasm, his speed, his energy – he’s been great round the Club, and he’s been a really terrific signing for us.
“I hope I can get more out of him, and for many reasons I really enjoy working with him.”
Bowen certainly was one of the bright sparks for West Ham last season in what was a fairly underwhelming year, but it looks like there is definitely more to come from him.
It seems a fair goal to try get more goals from the winger, as he had an excellent record of 54 goals in 131 appearances for ex-club Hull City.
Despite the fact the club are yet to bring in any new faces, they do have quite an exciting unit going forward and Bowen should keep improving as he gains more experience at top-flight level.
