Jarrod Bowen’s 22 Championship goals have reportedly caught the eye of Brendan Rodgers, manager of Premier League outfit Leicester City.
Leicester City could be about to make a £15 million bid for Hull City forward Jarrod Bowen, according to the Mail.
The highly-rated forward enjoyed a superb breakthrough season with the Tigers in 2018/19, scoring 22 Championship goals to finish sixth in the Golden Boot standings.
But with Hull missing out on the play-offs, and therefore a return to the top flight, Bowen’s future has come into question with a number of Premier League clubs keeping tabs.
One of those is Leicester City. The Sun (16 April, page 59) reported that Brendan Rodgers was ‘desperate’ to bring Bowen to the King Power Stadium as he looks to ease the goal-scoring burden on Jamie Vardy.
And it seems the Foxes are set to back their new manager by putting plans together for a £15 million bid, according to the Mail.
It remains to be seen whether that will be enough to convince Hull to part with their prized asset. Nigel Adkins’s side turned down a £12 million offer from Cardiff City in the January transfer window.
Bowen is renowned for his ability to cut in from the wing and fire shots at goal, earning comparisons with the likes of Mo Salah and Arjen Robben.
