Leicester City are considering a £15million bid for Hull City Jarrod Bowen in the summer transfer window, it has been reported.
The 22-year-old Bowen has enjoyed an incredible season with The Tigers, scoring 22 times and registering four assists to earn himself a place in the EFL’s Championship Team of the Season.
Those performances have certainly caught the interest of sides in the Premier League, with The Daily Mail reporting on the 2015/16 Premier League Champions potential offer for the Hull talisman.
If completed, it would be the second highest transfer fee received for a player by Hull, second only to the £17million they were paid, again by Leicester, for Harry Maguire.
So, should Hull accept an offer of that amount for Bowen if it comes in?
“Given Bowen has yet to really be tested in the Premier League, it is hard to see anyone much more than this for him.
“With his contract set to expire at the end of next season, it may be worth Hull cashing in on him while they can, meaning this may be a deal they are forced to take, whether they like it or not.”
“I think so.
“It is a shame because he is an outstanding footballer at this level but letting him go is right.
“Bowen will surely want to test himself at a higher level and standing in his way will only cause problems.”
“You’ve got to cash in and let him take that next step in his career.
“Bowen has had a great 12 months with the Tigers, but in truth, Hull aren’t going to progress at the speed he is.
“Leicester would be good for him too, that’s plainly obvious.”
