West Ham United set to start new contract talks with Jarrod Bowen

West ham United are set to open talks with Jarrod Bowen over a new bumper deal at the London Stadium, according to Toby Cudworth.

The 90min journalist shared that with interest growing from the likes of Liverpool, this is the reaction of the club.

Bowen still has numerous years left on his current deal but has earned this opportunity with his world-class performances.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Cudworth shared the latest on the situation of Bowen that has sparked GSB into action.

“Understand West Ham are ready to open talks with in-form Jarrod Bowen over a new contract,” he said.

“Liverpool interested so West Ham keen to offer improved terms, despite there being significant time left on his current deal.”

Get it done.

There are no excuses behind this one, it simply has to happen.

Bowen has been the standout performer this season, and that is why David Moyes has thrown great pressure on him by using him consistently in every competition.

While the likes of Michail Antonio have struggled for consistency in the final third, Bowen has carried on that form.

His goal and performance against Chelsea proved that he is the standout man right now at the London Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp knows a player, especially an attacker, when he sees one, and it looks as though Bowen is ready for the Champions League – let’s hope it’s with the Irons.
