West Ham: ExWHUemployee drops Jarrod Bowen update

West Ham United are reportedly hoping to tie Jarrod Bowen down to a new deal, according to respected club insider ExWHUemployee.

What’s the word?

As per the West Ham Way, the transfer guru revealed that the Hammers are “very keen” to reward the 25-year-old’s impressive form this season with a bumper new contract, amid speculation linking him with an exit from the London Stadium.

Asked about the Englishman’s future, the trusted insider revealed: “Yes the club are very keen to offer Bowen a new deal and get him signed up, like they are with others. Now at this stage there isn’t much to report as I don’t believe the negotiations have progressed but the talks will continue over the summer.”

This follows a report early last week which suggested that GSB wanted to double his existing wage by offering a new contract, even though the former Hull City man already has a deal that runs until 2025.

Supporters delighted

The Irons’ desire to hand their star asset improved terms is a reflection of just how vital he has been in recent seasons, with the £31.5m-rated speedster having gone from strength to strength since his £20m switch from the Championship in January 2020.

Since then, the £80k-per-week gem has bagged 27 goals and recorded 23 assists in 104 games in all competitions for the club, with such form sparking calls for the versatile forward to be handed a first international nod from Three Lions boss, Gareth Southgate.

Will Bowen be at West Ham next season?

Yes, total faith

No, he'll be gone

The most recent campaign proved particularly profitable for the one-time Hereford man, as he has registered 12 goals and ten assists from his 36 Premier League outings, with only Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (13) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (12) registering more top-flight assists.

That is esteemed company indeed, hence the clamour to try and ensure that Bowen does commit his future to the east Londoners, with the division’s elite clubs likely to come sniffing should the player give off any sense that he is seeking pastures new.

The club’s supporters, however, will no doubt be desperate to see the Leominster-born ace continue to ply his trade in the claret and blue over the coming seasons, while he could prove instrumental in their hopes of a late run in next season’s Europa Conference League.

How many Premier League goals did West Ham United score in the 2020/21 Premier League season?

At present, he ranks favourably among his fellow forwards on the continent, as per FBref, ranking in the top 1% for interceptions, the top 4% for blocks and the top 11% for tackles, showcasing an industrious side to his game that has also proven crucial to manager David Moyes.

As the Hammers attempt to unsettle the top-six again next term – and enjoy another lengthy European run – having the lethal left-footer in tow will no doubt make those ambitions far easier to realise.
