Paper round-up: Liverpool linked with Bowen

Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing West Ham star Jarrod Bowen.

Anfield boss Jurgen Klopp is known to be an admirer of Bowen, who has been a key player for the Hammers since being signed from Hull City.

The winger has scored five goals and made five this season and was outstanding in last month’s 3-2 win over Liverpool, prompting Klopp to say afterwards: “I like Bowen a lot.”

That appears to have fuelled speculation that Liverpool might make a move for Bowen.

And The Sun have picked up on the Liverpool Echo reporting that the club are interested in him.

The Echo say Bowen will stay at the London Stadium during the approaching transfer window but that Klopp could move for him during the summer.

The Sun have also picked up reports that West Ham will battle with Newcastle for the signing of Burnley’s former Brentford central defender James Tarkowski.

Burnley previously rejected an offer for Tarkowski from the Hammers, who have been tipped to make another attempt to snap him up, while Newcastle have also been linked with him in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, the Daily Telegraph say West Ham boss David Moyes is interested in signing Bournemouth defender Lloyd Kelly.
