Tottenham Hotspur are keeping on tabs on West Ham United winger Jarrod Bowen, according to The Independent.
The Lowdown: Dynamic player
The English winger’s performance as of late have caused speculation to increase, with Liverpool linked throughout the summer.
The Latest: Spurs circling
According to the Independent’s Melissa Reddy, Spurs scouts have been watching Bowen for a while now, alongside Liverpool and Leicester City.
His impressive performance against Manchester United on Sunday will have increased the interest for the £60k-per-week winger, who will be hoping to receive a call-up for Gareth Southgate’s England side soon.
Reddy has stated in her article that Bowen’s work off the ball is one of his most impressive attributes, praising his ‘dynamic, tireless display’ against United.
The Verdict: Next step
With Spurs already possessing quality in the wide areas with the likes of Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn, a move for Bowen would bolster Nuno Espirito Santo’s options for the future to avoid any problems with injuries.
Bowen’s quality of carving chances out of nowhere has seen him construct a lethal relationship with Michail Antonio, as the former Hull starlet is creating 2.4 chances per game (Whoscored), while also boasting a remarkable 3 dribbles per game.
To put those numbers into perspective, Son is averaging just one created chance and 1.8 dribbles per match this term (Whoscored).
With Liverpool and Leicester monitoring the situation, Spurs will need to have a unique offer to persuade Bowen to pick them, but ultimately, West Ham don’t need to sell and the ball remains very firmly in their court.
