Speaking to Football Insider, talkSPORT regular Gabriel Agbonlahor has been wowed by Jarrod Bowen and has admitted he fully deserves a pay rise in reaction to claims from The Athletic over an increase to his salary – going on to say is it is a ‘great bit of business for West Ham’.
Bowen has been a mainstay for David Moyes since arriving in 2020, starting 16 Premier League games in total this campaign alone, and reliable journalist David Ornstein claims the attacker has received a significant increase in salary after passing 30 appearances in all competitions for the Irons.
Agbonlahor hails Bowen business
In reaction to this development, Agbonlahor has heaped praise on the ‘great bit of business’ for West Ham with Bowen whilst claiming he will be a ‘star’.
“For me, he’s a quality player,” explained the talkSPORT regular to Football Insider.
“The pay rise he’s got he deserves because he’s been outstanding this season.
“I’m sure now he just wants to get a few more goals and assists now to back up these great performances because he’s definitely going to be a star.
“It’s a great bit of business for West Ham.”
Transfer Tavern take
Given Bowen’s contribution for the Hammers this season, scoring four times and grabbing two assists (Whoscored), it’s hard to argue with the former Premier League striker’s assessment – and he is fully deserving of his reward.
Time will tell whether he does become a star for Moyes, but you wouldn’t bet against it based off this season.
