Brendan Rodgers is hoping to bring Hull City starlet Jarrod Bowen to Leicester City this summer, according to the Sun (16 April, page 59).

The 22-year-old exploded onto the scene in 2017/18 with 15 goals for the Tigers but he has taken his game to a whole new level this season.

In all competitions, Bowen has hit the back of the net on 20 occasions, his form earning him a place in the Championship Team of the Season although Hull look set to miss out on the play-offs.


As such, the Tigers are at risk of losing their prized asset in the summer with Premier League trio Leicester, Everton and Tottenham all interested in the former Hereford United youngster.

The Sun claims that Rodgers has been keeping a close eye on Bowen ever since taking over at Leicester two months ago and believes he could be the perfect partner for the evergreen Jamie Vardy in attack.

A skilful and intelligent forward, Bowen could certainly thrive playing in a roving number ten role with Vardy making those trademark runs in behind to stretch opposition defences.

The Sun believes that Bowen will cost £15 million.
