Leicester City are, according to a good source, set to announce the signing of Hull City flank midfielder Jarrod Bowen. He is described as an “On budget Arjen Robben”, and will accordingly be joining Leicester City in the first week of the transfer window. We have today upgraded his status to “HOT”, as he looks close to a move.
Leicester City have over the last three transfer windows been linked with Bowen and he is the name that appears to have been short listed among a number of targets by Leicester City as the one to get in.
Leicester have, if you can talk about struggles, maybe lacked a bit of quality out wide and used James Maddison and Ayoze Perez a lot in a wide role, which is not what they prefer. The lack of goals from Harvey Barnes is a dilemma as he often gets into the positions to score, but seldom does.
Jarrod Bowen scores goals, and his tally is phenomenal so far. He has scored 51 goals in 117 league appearances for Hull City. We believe that this move is very close and to be pushed “over the line” soon.
He has so far scored 15 goals in 22 league games for Hull this season, and last his tally was 22. An exciting player who we believe will be at King Power sometime during January. The fee could be close to £10million. Some sources believe it will be a bigger fee, but with the current contract situation at Hull and Bowen being available on a free in the summer this looks as a possible scenario.
Reports suggests that Aston Villa and Newcastle United are in the chase, but a link to Leicester City will not go away and it’s a fact that Bowen is on a shortlist of targets.
