Some Arsenal fans react as reports link Jared Bowen with Emirates switch

Arsenal are interested in a move for Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen, according to The Sun.

The Gunners are currently trying to prise Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace and have made an opening bid of £40 million.

That will be rejected by the Eagles, who want at least £80 million for the Ivorian (BBC Sport).

Arsenal apparently only have around £45 million to spend this summer, meaning a deal to sign Zaha will definitely be difficult.

The club are going to have to sell some players and hope Palace’s stance over their talisman softens if he really is to depart for the Emirates Stadium.

Should the move for Zaha fail, Arsenal will table a £12 million offer for Championship winger Bowen.

Hull are said to want at least £15 million for the Englishman, who is seen as a ‘good value option’ by Arsenal.

An Arsenal insider told The Sun: “The club had checked him out before but at the time were not interested in pursuing it.

“However, his performances in the second half of last season made a real impression – and we believe he can develop into a top, top player.”
