Leicester should make target Jarrod Bowen a priority signing

Leicester have reportedly join the race to sign Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen.

According to the Sun, the Foxes are now in the hunt for the 22-year-old alongside Premier League clubs Tottenham and Everton.

It is understood that the attacker is valued at around £20million and Hull don’t want to lose their star man.

Bowen has been in brilliant form this campaign for Hull in the Championship and he would be an excellent addition at the King Power Stadium.

The right-winger has scored 11 goals and supplied three assists so far this campaign in just 26 appearances.

His reported £20million price tag is fairly high, but he’s got immense potential and has scored some stunning goals since breaking into the Hull first team.

Leicester do have first teamers Marc Albrighton and Demarai Gray who offer solid options in wide areas, while they have also now recalled exciting winger Harvey Barnes from his loan spell at West Brom due to his form.

 

But there could definitely be a space open for Bowen to compete in the first team, as summer signing Rachid Ghezzal has struggled to make an impact in Claude Puel’s team.

Ghezzal, 26, is a left-footed winger that has scored three goals in his 17 senior games for Leicester, but his overall displays have not been up to the mark.

The Algerian certainly lacks end product and consistency in the final third, which is why Bowen may already have the edge over him.

Leicester, who are seventh-placed in the Premier League, have a real chance of finishing in the European spots if they have a strong second half of the season.

The Foxes should go all out to try add left-footed dazzler Bowen to the squad, who can have a far greater impact than Ghezzal in front of goal.
