Hull City

Newcastle and Southampton keen on January swoop for 22-y/o attacker

Premier League sides Southampton and Newcastle United remain interested in signing Hull City forward Jarrod Bowen in January, according to reports from The Express.

The 22-year-old was a target for a host of top-flight sides last season after a standout campaign for the Tigers. He was named in the Championship Team of the Season after an impressive year.

Bowen netted 22 times in all competitions last term and was a reported target for the likes of Newcastle, Southampton, Everton and Spurs over the course of the season.

The versatile forward has started this season off in impressive style too, scoring four goals in Hull’s first seven games of the season, with Grant McCann’s side winning just one of their first six league matches.

The Express claim, though, that Newcastle and Southampton have had scouts watch Bowen in action in the early parts of this season, as they prepare a move ahead of January.

The Tigers value Bowen at a price of around £20m, and are expected to hold out for that price despite the player’s contract running out at the end of the campaign.

Hull face Wigan Athletic at the KCOM Stadium next weekend, after a short international break.

The Verdict

I think Hull could be in for a nervy transfer window, especially with Newcastle and Southampton already starting to lurk.

Fair play to them if they think they can get around £20m for him, but I highly doubt that they will get that much money for him with his contract up at the end of the year.

Would he want to extend his stay at Hull amid interest from these calibre of clubs? I doubt it, in all honesty.
