Premier League side Leicester City have joined the race to sign Hull City talisman Jarrod Bowen, according to reports from The Sun.
The 22-year-old has been influential for the Tigers this season, and has recently been awarded the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month award for December, following a string of impressive performances.
The playmaker has scored eleven goals and produced three assists for Nigel Adkins’ men this season, with reports claiming that Claude Puel’s Foxes have joined their Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are interested in landing the winger, who is reportedly valued at £20million.
Hull owner Ehab Allam recently came out and insisted that Bowen would not be sold in January, after the latter’s impressive contribution to the Tigers’ revival in the Sky Bet Championship.
Adkins’ men currently sit 13th in the league standings after six wins out of their last seven league games, despite winning just four out of their previous nineteen matches before that.
Allam may be sure that Hull won’t sell Bowen this month, but with even more Premier League sides declaring an interest in the player, Bowen’s head could be turned.
He has been superb for Hull this season and has really galvanised them to turn around their fortunes, and fire up the Championship table.
£20million is a huge amount of money, and it could be of real use to Hull. Those kind of funds could even ignite a potential play-off push in the second-half of this campaign.
