West Ham United appear to be in pole position to sign Jarrod Bowen, with Sky Sports reporting on their live transfer blog (31/1; 08:00) that the Hull City man is heading to the Hammers for a medical.
Bowen has been heavily linked with a move away from the Tigers this month. The forward has been one of the most lethal goalscorers in the Championship for some time.
And after scoring another 16 goals and providing seven assists this term, it is little surprise to see him on the way to the Premier League.
Sky Sports (31/1; 08:00) reports on their live transfer blog that his preferred destination was thought to be Crystal Palace. However, he now looks to be heading elsewhere.
According to Sky Sports, the Hammers have agreed terms with Hull over a move. And he is now on his way to London to undergo a medical.
TBR View – Major coup for West Ham
It looks to be an exciting piece of business for West Ham. Bowen has scored 52 goals since the start of the 2017/18 season.
Irons fans may be concerned about whether he can step up to Premier League level.
But if they had not made the move, Bowen would have surely gone elsewhere before the window closes.
It is potentially an exciting start to deadline day for David Moyes’s men.
And given their current position, the Hammers fans may be hoping that he is not the last through the door – should they get a move across the line.
