Report: West Ham prepared to sell player but only for a profit of £53 million

West Ham will allegedly only be prepared to sell Jarrod Bowen to Liverpool for an absolute minimum of £75 million.

That’s according to a report from Caught Offside who claim that the Hammers will strongly resist any approach from Liverpool for the 25-year-old attacker in the summer transfer window.

Bowen joined West Ham from Hull City in January 2020 for around £22 million according to The Guardian.

If Jurgen Klopp really wants to bring Bowen to Anfield though, the Liverpool owners will have to dig very deep.

He does possess all of the attributes that Klopp usually looks for in a forward player. One would imagine that a Liverpool move to sign Bowen will be heavily dependent on whether Mohamed Salah signs a new contract in the summer, however.

Caught Offside claims that the Hammers won’t sell the 25-year-old star to the Reds for anything less than £75 million.

That would represent a £53 million profit for West Ham on the £22 million that we paid Hull for his services 25 months ago.

Whether Liverpool will be prepared to pay that kind of money for Jarrod remains to be seen. It could be argued that he is priceless to West Ham though.

Bowen has been in sensational form for the Hammers this season. He is undoubtedly one of the two most important players that David Moyes has at his disposal at the London Stadium.

The 25-year-old has bagged 12 goals and 11 assists in 37 games for West Ham so far this term (Transfermarkt).

Bowen possesses exceptional technical ability, has impressive pace and is a tenacious, dogged competitor. He has an unbelievable work-rate that can be matched by few attacking players in world football and is a constant menace to opposing defenders.

The former Hull ace also possesses incredible stamina that is surely the envy of professional footballers the world over.

He just doesn’t stop running for West Ham and always puts in a defensive shift.

Bowen seems to be on the cusp of reaching another level entirely and has proven this season that he is a truly elite Premier League player.

David Moyes will undoubtedly do everything in his power to keep Jarrod at West Ham beyond the end of this season.

And as outlined by Caught Offside, Liverpool will have to go big if they want to prise him away from the London Stadium in the summer transfer window.
