Liverpool’s recruitment team are admirers of rumoured Reds transfer target Jarrod Bowen, according to journalist Paul Gorst.
The Lowdown: Bowen linked with Liverpool move
The 24-year-old enjoyed an impressive 2020/21 season for West Ham, scoring eight goals and registering five assists in the Premier League.
The Latest: Journalist provides update
Now, Liverpool Echo journalist Gorst has given a fresh update on the situation during a Q&A on Friday, admitting Bowen is admired by the Reds’ recruitment team:
“He was an ever present in a West Ham side that finished an impressive 6th last season. He might not be flashy or ‘a name’ but if Liverpool’s recruitment team like him, they have earned the right to be trusted haven’t they?
“I think he is the right sort of profile for what the club want, age-wise, status within the game, someone who might be ready to take that next big step. A bit like Jota, yes.”
The Verdict: Is he good enough?
There are question marks over whether or not Bowen is of the required standard for Liverpool, at a time when Jurgen Klopp’s men are aiming to win the Premier League title back from Manchester City.
The Englishman has only played top-flight football for one-and-a-half seasons, so there is an argument to say that a higher calibre of wide man is needed.
That being said, someone like Andy Robertson came in as a relatively low-profile name in 2017 and has gone to become a world-class left-back, so the recruitment team may need to be trusted.
In other news, some Liverpool fans have been lauding one moment that happened in the friendly with Hertha Berlin. Read more here.
