Liverpool fans react as West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen is linked with Anfield move
Liverpool want West Ham United forward Jarod Bowen as boss Jurgen Klopp looks to beef up his attack this summer, according to The Athletic.
So far this summer, Liverpool have only added defender Ibrahima Konate to their ranks and now they will focus on strengthening further up the pitch.
Bowen joined West Ham from Hull in January 2020. He cost the club £18 million in a deal that could eventually rise to £25 million.
During 2020/21, he caught the eye with a string of solid performances, scoring eight goals and claiming five assists for the Londoners.
Signing him won’t come easily though. The Hammers will likely fancy a significant profit on the player who has a contract in the capital until 2025. .
One thing Liverpool lacked last season was squad depth and clearly, they are keen to rectify that during the transfer window.
Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri could both leave and that will once again leave Klopp short in attack.
Surprise signing: Some fans fancy Bowen at Liverpool
The West Ham man perhaps isn’t the stellar forward that some Liverpool fans are craving but he does look ideally suited to Klopp’s style.
He could offer sound competition for the usual front three of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
The report claims that Klopp is a massive fan of Bowen and this signing could be intriguing, albeit an exciting deal for Liverpool to make.
Fans are naturally divided. Plenty feel that he isn’t the big name that the club craves in order to win back their title. Others, however, are receptive to the idea and see it as a similar situation to when the club signed Andy Robertson and Gini Wijnaldum from lesser clubs.
Here is a look at what some of the club’s more positive fans are saying about the possibility of Bowen rocking up at Anfield.
