Newcastle United and Norwich City have been closely monitoring Jarrod Bowen over the last few weeks, with the Premier League pair considering a January move for the Hull City star, a source has exclusively told Football League World.
Bowen has been the key cog at Hull over the past 18 months, netting 22 goals in the Championship last season for the Tigers and already finding the back of the net 14 times in the current campaign.
The 22-year-old is yet to agree a new contract at the KCOM Stadium, and given his impressive goalscoring form this season under Grant McCann, he’s on the radar of those in the Premier League.
And, a source has told FLW that is has been Newcastle and Norwich watching Bowen in recent weeks, with both weighing up a move to sign him when the January transfer window opens next month.
Newcastle boss, Steve Bruce, was the man who initially brought Bowen to Hull in 2014, with the forward now moving past 50 goals for the Tigers in his five-and-a-half years on Humberside.
Bowen was once again the difference for Hull over the weekend, with his second-half brace helping McCann’s side come from behind to beat Stoke City on Saturday afternoon.
That 2-1 win lifted Hull back into the top-half of the Championship table, with attention now turning to tomorrow night’s testing trip to West Yorkshire, where the Tigers and Bowen meet Leeds United.
Bowen scored a brace in a 2-0 victory at Elland Road last season.
