West Ham United are not “particularly concerned” about England international Jarrod Bowen leaving the club this summer, amid rumours of interest in his signature.
That is according to Dean Jones, who was speaking to This is Futbol about the latest at the London Stadium going into the final few weeks of the transfer window.
According to The Sun, Arsenal side have submitted an enquiry regarding the availability of Bowen, with David Moyes’ side demanding a £75m fee for his services.
CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs, recently told GIVEMESPORT that there are clubs circling around the 25-year-old winger, but the Irons simply don’t want to sell him.
And Jones believes that West Ham are not worried about the prospect of Bowen leaving the club this summer, with the chances of a transfer away from the London Stadium looking slim.
He said: “I don’t think West Ham are particularly concerned that Bowen’s going to leave them at this stage.
“It’d be a massive blow to them if he did.
“I think he’d be a great get for Arsenal, but I still think that the likelihood of him actually making that transfer is probably slim.”
TIF Thoughts on Jones’ comments…
We think that West Ham fans will be relieved to hear that one of their key players is unlikely to leave this summer ahead of their domestic and European campaigns this season.
Bowen, who Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has previously dubbed as “unbelievable”, made 51 appearances for the Hammers last season, scoring 18 goals and providing 13 assists according to Transfermarkt, suggesting that he is crucial to the east London side’s attacking output. So Jones’ suggestion that his departure would be a ‘massive blow’ is probably on the money.
Therefore, we believe that West Ham supporters will be desperate for him to stay, and we think they will get their wish, as it is surely unlikely that somebody stumps up £75m for the four-cap England international this summer.
