8,000 Liverpool fans give verdict on Anfield linked Jarrod Bowen ⚒️
Fans have been somewhat divided on this one
Jarrod Bowen has reportedly earned himself a spot on Liverpool’s radar, which is, if history’s taught us anything, somewhat broad.
Available for a fee beyond £35m, according to Roshane Thomas of The Athletic, a potential transfer isn’t exactly lightyears beyond the realm of reality for Michael Edwards and his world-class recruitment team.
Given the financial constraints the Reds are having to work under, however, an asking price significantly higher than the value mentioned would more than likely complicate negotiations.
Given that Bowen arose as a somewhat left-of-field target, we at EOTK Insider were curious to get your thoughts on whether the player was one the club should seriously consider moving for.
A majority of over 70% of supporters polled were NOT in favour of the Englishman being pursued this summer.
But what do we think?
Well, if you’re looking for reliability, you’re certainly not going to be shortchanged with the Hammers frontman who featured in every single league game for David Moyes’ men last term.
Moving on to attributes, Bowen comes across as being more of a creative force than his surface-level stats suggest (eight goals, five assists in the English top-flight in the prior season).
The player favours the right wing spot but is capable of being fielded in either one of the front-three positions - as most of us are familiar with already, Jurgen Klopp is a BIG fan of versatility.
Not to mention the player’s age (24), which makes the link seem somewhat plausible on paper as the kind of rough outline of an ideal target one could sketch out judging off of the recruitment team’s perceived requirements.
Given how successful a handful of previous signings from less dominant clubs in the Premier League have been, we certainly wouldn’t turn our noses up at Bowen if he were considered a top target by Liverpool.
Plausibility aside, however, with four years remaining on his contract in London - not forgetting his £35m valuation that West Ham will likely want a suitor to exceed - it’s difficult to see the club being able to keep the asking price down on this one.
What do you make of the link, Reds?
