Jurgen Klopp an 'admirer' of West Ham United ace Jarrod Bowen amid 'genuine' interest

Liverpool have a “genuine” interest in signing West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen in the summer, according to talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook. 

The Irons ace has found himself on the radar of the quadruple pushers following an excellent season in front of goal – being involved in 31 goals in all competitions. 

Despite Jurgen Klopp being an “admirer” of the winger, his London Stadium contract doesn’t run out until 2025 and that combined with the Reds’ plethora of attacking options could be an issue for the Merseysiders. 

Cook told GIVEMESPORT: “I know Jurgen Klopp’s an admirer so that interest from Liverpool is genuine. But where does he fit in now that they’ve signed Diaz?

“They’ve got (Diogo) Jota obviously at the moment, Salah and Mane are still there, and so is Firmino.”

Stay. 

It is very unlikely to see Liverpool making a move for Bowen in the summer. For the first time in a long time, they are bolstered for attacking options and the Anfield outfit rarely spend when they don’t have to. 

The 25-year-old’s future is committed to West Ham for the next few seasons at least which would make any attempt to prize him away from east London in the summer very expensive. 

In terms of importance to this squad, Bowen has been on par with Declan Rice this season and that is saying something. 

He is by far one of the most important players in Irons’ squad and it is crucial that David Moyes keeps hold of him ahead of next season.

The Hammers will be looking to build on the momentum gained this season in the summer transfer window by adding a few more quality players to the squad. 

However, the most important thing is that they keep hold of the star players they already have.
