West Ham United have been handed a huge update over the future of prized asset Jarrod Bowen.
What’s the word?
That is according to a report by transfer insider Dean Jones (via GIVEMESPORT), who has revealed that the Hammers are celebrating Darwin Nunez’s recent move to Liverpool, as it has “eased fears” that the Reds could launch a big for Jarrod Bowen.
Will WHU finish in the Top 6 next season?
As such, it is said that Moyes and co have renewed hope that the 25-year-old will put pen to paper over a new and improved contract at the London Stadium.
Jones states that the general consensus around the club points to Bowen being “open to the idea” of pledging his immediate future to the Irons, who are keen to increase the figures of the current contract which expires in the summer of 2025 and sees him take home around £60k-per-week.
Huge boost for West Ham
The latest update from Jones is entirely positive from a West Ham perspective.
Quite simply, if Moyes can get Bowen to pledge further allegiance to the progressive Hammers, other stars like Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek may be more likely to do the same.
The 2021/22 campaign was nothing short of mesmeric for the 25-year-old, having bagged a sensational 24 attacking returns from 36 games, with an evenly-split 12 goals and 12 assists showing his prowess as a finisher and respective ingenuity as a creator of chances. He ended the season as both their leading scorer and assists provider, a clear illustrator of his importance to the cause.
Keeping hold of a talent like Bowen – especially after his emergence into Gareth Southgate’s England setup – would feel as good as a new signing in itself, and it gives West Ham a further chance to build on their recent success which has seen them become regular contenders for a European finish.
The update from Jones will leave Irons supporters buzzing, and the east London club must seize this opportunity to build on what they already have.
