Report: Arsenal interested in Jarrod Bowen; West Ham open contract talks
Arsenal are interested in Jarrod Bowen, with 90min reporting that West Ham plan to offer the forward a new contract to stave interest from a host of Premier League sides.
Bowen looks set to make his England debut this month. It would be a reward for a phenomenal season in which he established himself as one of the Hammers’ most important players.
He scored 12 goals and provided 12 assists in the Premier League. Meanwhile, he managed 18 goals in all competitions as David Moyes led his side to the semi-final of the Europa League.
90min reports that West Ham are now set to offer Bowen a new contract. And that news may catch the attention of a number of top-flight rivals.
But 90min adds that Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea have all shown interest recently. Newcastle are also admirers of the former Hull City man.

In truth, few Arsenal fans will hold out any hope of Bowen ending up at the Emirates. There is a lot of competition. And the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea can offer Champions League from next season. He is also a boyhood Manchester United supporter.
But most importantly, West Ham are not going to let him go. Moyes has previously spoken of £150 million probably not being enough to get Declan Rice out of the London Stadium.
You would imagine that the Hammers would be just as determined to hold onto Bowen. And with that, it is hard to see any side offering the kind of fee West Ham would consider.
He would be a brilliant signing for Arsenal as he heads into his peak. But Gunners fans will be under no illusions that it would be a huge shock if he ended up at the Emirates.
