Hull City

Details of Leicester’s interest in attacker become clearer

Hull City fans could be in for a long summer, following a report detailing 2015/16 Premier League Champions Leicester City’s interest in Jarrod Bowen.

The 22-year-old Bowen has enjoyed another impressive season for Hull, scoring 22 times and assisting four more to earn himself a place in the EFL’s Championship Team of the Season.

Those performances have led to plenty of speculation around Premier League interest in the midfielder, and it appears that sides within the top tier are starting to make plans to move for the Hull talisman during the summer transfer window, and Leicester are one of those sides.

According to The Daily Mail, The Foxes are contemplating offering Hull £15 million for their talisman. If true, that fee would be the second highest ever received by The Tigers, topped only by the £17 million they received for centre back Harry Maguire, again paid by Leicester.

Leicester will be looking to build on their promising end to the Premier League season under new manager Brendan Rodgers, as they look to challenge for European football in the coming campaign.

The verdict

As impressive as Bowen has been for Hull in recent seasons, he is yet to really show what he can do across a full season in the Premier League, so it hard to see Hull getting much more than this for the attacker.

With Bowen’s contract set to expire at the end of next season, Hull may well be tempted to cash in on him while they can, so accepting an offer such as this may not be a bad idea for The Tigers.
