Liverpool interested in 24 year old Westham Midfielder

The 24-year-old is someone who has significant potential and can initially provide back-up, with the intention for him to develop into a first-team regular.

That is £40m too high for Liverpool - for a player that is unlikely to trouble the front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

The Championship is no easy league, yet at just 17 the wonderkid was making his elders look silly and he ended the campaign with seven goals and 11 assists in 41 matches.

Liverpool have identified Bowen as a potential target as he fits their profile in terms of age, playing style and versatility.

If Liverpool do sign Bowen he will join their pre-season efforts which have started with a training camp in Austria.

Liverpool coaches have already been wowed by the ex-Fulham ace in pre-season training with Klopp impressed by his fitness.

Bowen, who began his career at Hereford United, joined the Hammers from Hull City in January 2020 for an initial £18m rising to £25m.

He would also arguably be behind Diogo Jota, who lit up Anfield in his first season.

Recruitment staff believe Bowen to be the type of player who would not only provide a boost in terms of quality, but also be willing to initially take on a back-up role.
