£16m star’s camp think ‘unbelievable’ player could replace Salah at Liverpool

Jarrod Bowen’s camp are reportedly ‘aware’ that the West Ham United talisman is a potential candidate to replace Mo Salah at Premier League giants Liverpool in 2024. 

West Ham found out the hard way this summer that even those who bleed claret-and-blue eventually feel the need to move on, and test themselves in more pressurised, silverware-chasing environments. 

After losing captain Declan Rice to Arsenal, could 2024 be the year when Jarrod Bowen comes down with a nasty case of itchy feet? 

There are, after all, less than two years left on Bowen’s contract. And talkSPORT believe that, as negotiations over a new deal continue to progress at a snail’s pace, both Liverpool and Newcastle United are making sure to keep abreast of the situation.

Liverpool and Newcastle eye Jarrod Bowen

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe, talkSPORT add, is a ‘long-time admirer’. You can most definitely say the same of his Merseyside-based counterpart Jurgen Klopp. 

Bowen has been linked consistently with a move to Liverpool for about three years now. And with Mo Salah’s own future increasingly uncertain – Al-Ittihad will not give up that easily – there may soon be a spot opening up in the Liverpool attack for a right-footed left-winger with an eye for goal. 

Bowen’s advisers, talkSPORT say, are ‘aware’ of Liverpool’s interest as the six-time European champions prepare reluctantly for a potential Salah-less future. 

Can West Ham star replace Mo Salah?

With five in seven starts, Bowen has actually scored more goals than Salah so far in the current Premier League season. Only Heung Min-Son of Tottenham Hotspur (six) and a certain Manchester-based blonde bomber (eight) have more to their name.

“Bowen, what a player he became! Unbelievable,” Klopp said of Bowen back in 2022, two years after he completed a £16 million move from Hull City to West Ham (The Standard). 

“We saw him as well at Hull, and he was really good at that time. I’m not sure a lot of people expected this jump, but unbelievable player.”
