Jarrod Bowen was up to his old tricks this weekend for Hull City. After failing to score in a 3-1 loss at Barnsley the weekend before, Bowen bagged his fourth brace this season with 2 goals in a win against Stoke City.
That brought Bowen’s season total to 16 in just 21 appearances for the Championship club. Hull City are reluctant to let the soon to be 23-year-old leave this winter but may not have a choice if a significant bid comes in for him.
With his stellar form this season, Newcastle could face some competition for the prolific forward. 90min have a report that the struggling Bournemouth want to bring Bowen in this winter.
The Cherries, who have lost their last five games beginning with a 2-1 defeat at St James Park, are reportedly looking at Bowen as a replacement for Ryan Fraser.
Fraser’s contract is up in the summer, and it looks like he’ll be leaving the Vitality Stadium on a free. We wonder if Newcastle have a chance at Fraser. A few days ago, Bruce spoke about having a few things in place for the summer in terms of Bosmans.
Jarrod Bowen– Newcastle must sign Bowen in January
Bournemouth are also likely to release winger Jordon Ibe this summer, who has just not fulfilled his immense potential since joining the club from Liverpool. He could also be someone on Newcastle’s radar as he was linked as a target this summer.
We worry about Bournemouth’s interest in Bowen as they are a bit more clinical in the transfer market than Newcastle, who seem to mess about too much for our liking.
This summer they brought in Liverpool’s Harry Wilson on loan when Newcastle were strongly linked with the 22-year-old. Wilson scored a nice goal at St James Park in our 2-1 win last month.
The report also claims interest from Burnley, Sheffield United, and Brighton for Bowen. It will likely take a £20m bid to pry the forward from Hull city despite his reluctance to sign a new deal.
With Newcastle having limited options on the wing and with Allan Saint-Maximin suffering a second hamstring injury, we feel they should definitely look to bring Bowen in this winter to strengthen this team.
