Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are still being linked with a move for West Ham United star Jarrod Bowen, and the Englishman’s recent performances explain why.

The Independent revealed earlier this week that the Reds, Spurs and Leicester City are all keen to sign Bowen, who joined West Ham from Hull City for about £20 million in January last year. (BBC)

He has been brilliant for the Irons since his arrival and with interest from rival clubs growing, it’s unlikely that he will stay at the London Stadium for much longer.

West Ham had to face Manchester United twice in four days this week. The Hammers, unfortunately, lost in the Premier League last weekend, but they got their revenge with a 1-0 win in the cup midweek.

Bowen, even though he didn’t score, was arguably West Ham’s best player in both games.

The Englishman, in the two games against Manchester United, registered one assist, six shots, attempted 11 dribbles and played six passes leading directly to shots on goal, which is a stunning return.

To add to that, he registered a combined five key passes, won 11 ground duels and helped out with a couple of tackles as well. (SofaScore)

That is a brilliant return against a quality side, and it is no surprise that the big boys in England are interested in his services.

West Ham face Leeds United at Elland Road later today and many eyes will be on Bowen. If the 24-year-old can impress for the third time this week, the Irons will find it extremely difficult to retain his services in the next two transfer windows.

The positive for West Ham, however, is that Bowen is tied down to a contract until 2025. If they have to let him go, they will surely make a huge profit on what they paid for him last year, but if it’s up to Hammers fans, he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
