Tottenham Hotspur are among the few Premier League clubs extensively scouting West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen.
Jarrod Bowen, 24, has really impressed in the Premier League since moving to West Ham from Hull City in a £20m-plus deal during the 2020 January transfer window. The Englishman has been a crucial player for David Moyes’ side, registering nine goals and 11 assists in 59 games across all competitions. He played a massive role in the east London outfit finishing sixth on the table, thereby, the club clinching a Europa League berth for the first time in their history.
The 24-year-old has started the new Premier League campaign well and delivered an impressive display in West Ham’s 2-1 loss to Manchester United in Matchweek 5 at the London Stadium on Sunday. Bowen’s exciting displays with the Hammers haven’t gone unnoticed, with Liverpool and Leicester City also believed to be keeping tabs on him.
Meanwhile, Tottenham have now suffered back-to-back defeats to Crystal Palace and Chelsea respectively after three successive 1-0 victories in the Premier League. Nuno Espirito Santo knows the magnitude of the job he has at his hands following his arrival at the club as Jose Mourinho’s replacement.
Spurs have struggled scoring goals this term
The north London club are struggling in front of goal and haven’t found the back of the net in their last two league outings. Before that, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men won three games by a 1-0 scoreline.
Harry Kane, despite being heavily linked with a move to Manchester City over the summer after making clear his desire to win major trophies, stayed with Tottenham. However, he has been a shadow of his former self, and with no goals and assists in the four league games he’s played so far, the England international is clearly out of form at the moment.
Son Heung-min has been the rare bright spark for Spurs at the top end of the pitch, which is enough to ring the alarm bells over Tottenham’s lack of productivity going forward. With Kane misfiring, and the likes of Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn yet to contribute significantly this season to date, Nuno must prioritise signing a goal-scoring forward when the transfer window reopens in January.
Jarrod Bowen could be a shrewd addition to Tottenham’s attacking ranks
To that end, signing someone like West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen would hugely benefit Tottenham.
A versatile forward who can play anywhere along the front-line, Bowen likes to play on the right flank and cut in onto his left foot before making a creative pass or having a pop at goal. The Englishman is smart, quick and creative, and works really hard off the ball. Due to his pace, he is a threat during counter-attacks and has proven to be a game-changer on many occasions for West Ham.
Bowen’s dribbling skills and movement are highly appreciated, and the fact that he has adapted really well to the rigours of Premier League football since moving from the Championship in 2020 adds more value to his name. The former Hull City ace would be a good choice for Spurs as he’ll not only improve their attacking options but also take some burden off Kane’s shoulders.
With Liverpool and Leicester City also lurking around to sign him, Tottenham must do everything to their powers to sign Bowen from West Ham.
