Leicester City could turn Jarrod Bowen into the next Gray or Maddison

Leicester have a good recent record of bringing players up from the Championship.

Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen is a man in demand after continuing his fine form this season.

According to The Sun, Fulham and Cardiff City are interested in Bowen, who is rated at £5m by Hull.

But Leicester City should be considering this deal, given their recent record of bringing Championship players up to the Premier League.

Demarai Gray and James Maddison have both joined Leicester from the second tier and established themselves as Premier League regulars.

Gray joined the Foxes from Birmingham City for a bargain £3.7m in January 2016.

Since then, the 22-year-old has established himself as an England under-21 star and he has two goals and an assist to his name this season.

Maddison joined from Norwich City last summer and has already been impressing in the top flight.

 

With five goals and two assists in 15 games, the 22-year-old is one of the hottest young prospects in English football.

Bowen has all the ingredients to follow in Gray and Maddison’s footsteps and become a hit in the Premier League.

In 21 games this season, the 21-year-old has scored six goals and picked up three assists, despite Hull’s struggles.

After scoring 14 goals last season, Bowen has proven that he is a top talent in the second tier and can step up.

Leicester should enter the race for the lively winger, who could be the next Gray or Maddison for just £5m.
