West Ham slapped £40m price tag on Liverpool transfer target

By | November 25, 2021

West Ham United have reportedly increased their valuation of attacking midfielder Jarrod Bowen, amid interest from Liverpool.

The 24-year-old star has excelled for the Hammers and provided two assists in their 3-2 win at home against the Merseyside Reds on Sunday, moving David Moyes’s men up to third in the English top-tier.

Football Insider claims that an offer in the region of £40m would have tempted the Hammers to cash in on the forward last summer; however, the team now believe that his price tag has risen significantly after an impressive run of form this season.

The Hammers are under no pressure to sell Bowen, who moved to the London Stadium from Championship outfit Hull City in January 2020 for a fee worth around £18m.

Jurgen Klopp is believed to be an admirer of the Englishman and one report has previously suggested that the Merseyside Reds could make a move for him in January, while the Spurs and Leicester City have also been credited with an interest in the forward.

Bowen is one of two West Ham players, along with teammate Pablo Fornals, to have featured in all 17 matches across all competitions so far this season, scoring three goals and providing five assists.
