According to a report from the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds are interested in signing Hull City forward Jarrod Bowen this summer as Marcelo Bielsa continues his preparations for his first season in charge at Elland Road.

The Whites are yet to make a signing this summer, but have been linked with a number of exciting players. And after a campaign where their squad failed to sustain any kind of promotion charge, the Leeds fans will be hoping that the arrivals will soon be flowing through the door.

And perhaps one of those possible arrivals could be Bowen. The Yorkshire Evening Post suggests that Leeds are keen on the 21-year-old who enjoyed a remarkable first campaign as a regular in Hull's side.

The starlet scored 14 goals in the league - three more than Leeds' top goalscorer Kemar Roofe - from the wing to top the Tigers' goalscoring charts ahead of Abel Hernandez, who, according to another report from the Yorkshire Evening Post, is in advanced talks regarding a move to Leeds

So could Hernandez and Bowen still be teammates next season? The Sun reported earlier this week that the youngster was attracting Everton's attention and a £12 million bid was on the way, so it would certainly appear to be an uphill battle for Bielsa. 

But with Leeds surely able to offer regular first-team football a lot sooner than the Toffees probably can, perhaps Bowen may feel that he could have a tricky decision to make should Leeds and former boss Marco Silva both put offers in front of him during this window.
