Reported Everton and Southampton target Jarrod Bowen has suggested to The Hull Daily Mail that he wants to play in the Premier League with Hull City.

Bowen is one of the best players in the Championship and has been linked with a number of clubs in the Premier League.

The Daily Mail has reported that Norwich City - who are aiming to clinch automatic promotion from the Championship at the end of the season - have been tracking the 22-year-old, with Everton also reported to be monitoring the Englishman, who can operate as a forward or as a winger.

The Sun on Sunday (print edition, page 66, March 3, 2019) reportedthat Southampton are preparing to make a summer bid for the Hull youngster (click here to read more).

The Mirror reported in January 2019 that Tottenham, Burnley, Crystal Palace and Leicester City all wanted to sign Bowen from Hull City in the January transfer window.

Bowen, though, has suggested that he is not thinking of his future right and is thinking of helping Hull clinch promotion to the Premier League via the Championship playoffs.

Bowen told The Hull Daily Mail regarding his future: “It’s inevitable (for speculation to come) when you do well and establish yourself. I’ve shown loyalty to Hull because that’s my club. There’s going to be interest no matter what happens but I don’t take too much interest in that.

“I’ve got agents who are in the know and only if a bid comes in and gets accepted is it time to think about it. Right now I’m knuckling down and looking to get into the Premier League with the club I’m at.”
