Speaking to Football Insider, rival ‘insider’ John Wenham has dropped a claim on Jarrod Bowen – with David Moyes gifted a big West Ham United boost.
The Lowdown: Bowen a wanted man…
As per The Independent, Moyes may have to be wary of his biggest rivals swooping for Bowen as scouts from Tottenham, Liverpool and Leicester all keep tracking the winger.
Amid his electric start to the season, it appears he is already attracting admirers and the last thing West Ham need is to lose a forward option without a recognised back-up striker.
However, in reaction to this news, a Spurs insider has appeared to alleviate fears that his side could make a move for Bowen.
The Latest: Insider drops possible Moyes boost…
As per Lilywhites ‘insider’ John Wenham, speaking to FI, it appears Moyes and West Ham may not have to worry about losing the forward to one of their biggest London rivals.
“Tottenham and West Ham don’t do business. There is no love lost between the two clubs at boardroom level,” he explained.
“I don’t see West Ham entertaining any bids for Bowen from Tottenham, that one is a non-starter.
“Tottenham may be interested in him but some clubs just don’t do business.
“I would categorically rule that one out now. Even if West Ham said he was available they would turn down an approach from Tottenham.
“From what I’ve heard from people I know in the industry, I just can’t see that one happening.”
The Verdict: Big boost for Moyes?
Moyes having to watch GSB sell to a rival like Spurs would have left a bitter taste, so this news comes as a breath of fresh air.
The 24-year-old has, arguably, been one of West Ham’s players of the season so far alongside star striker Michail Antonio.
No Irons man has averaged more completed dribbles (3) or key passes per 90 (2.4) in the Premier League according to WhoScored, and if he continues this streak he could be a very key player this year.
