A January move to Leicester City would offer fresh hope to West Bromwich Albion.

Leicester City are the latest club to be linked with a move for the Hull City forward Jarrod Bowen.

According to the Sun, Leicester are among a 'host of Premier League clubs including Tottenham Hotspur and Everton tracking' Bowen, who has scored or assisted 14 goals in 26 games this season.

 

The newspaper claims the 22-year-old is valued at £20 million by Hull, who are adamant they will not sell him in January.

It adds, however, that the 13th-place Tigers are resigned to losing Bowen if they fail to gain promotion this season.

Barnes lifeline for Baggies?

Leicester are understood to have recalled Harvey Barnes - who plays in a similar role to Bowen - from West Bromwich Albion on Friday, which could give the Foxes some breathing space if they do wish to pursue a deal for Bowen.

Alternatively, any January deal for the former Hereford player would offer hope to West Brom that Barnes could return before the close of the transfer window.
