Southampton: Fans react to being linked with Hull City’s Jarrod Bowen

Southampton have been linked with a move for Hull City playmaker Jarrod Bowen for some time now.

The 22-year-old is one of the Championship’s hottest prospects and last season scored 22 goals in 46 appearances for the Tigers (via Transfermarkt).

This season, Bowen has already notched nine league goals and two assists for Hull, making him one of the division’s highest goalscorers at this stage of proceedings.

Southampton could certainly do with some extra firepower up front, with Danny Ings shouldering most of the goalscoring duties so far this term.

The former Liverpool forward has six to his name so far – four more than both Moussa Djenepo and James Ward-Prowse – who are the club’s current second-top goalscorers with two each (via BBC Sport).

Summer signing Che Adams has so far been a disappointment having failed to find the net in his opening 10 appearances for the club, thus making a move for a new striker in 2020 a viable option for the Saints. After all, they need all the help they can get to steer themselves clear of relegation this season.

Here’s what some Southampton fans had to say about the Jarrod Bowen rumours on Twitter; it’s fair to say that it’s brought out some mixed responses:
