Report: Leeds chasing summer move for 23-year-old attacker tracked by three PL clubs in January

Leeds United know all about the talent that Hull City forward Jarrod Bowen possesses.

The 23-year-old has scored 38 goals since the beginning of last season in the Championship – two of those being in the 2-0 defeat Leeds suffered against the Tigers just over a year ago.

That is the type of form that has seen him attract the interest of numerous clubs from both in the Championship and the Premier League.

The Sun reported on Sunday morning that both Leeds and West Brom are both chasing Bowen, and are eyeing a move in the summer once his current deal at Hull expires at the end of the season.

It is suggested on their website that West Ham United, Tottenham, and Leicester are all tracking the 23-year-old closely ahead of the January transfer window and that the Hammers could launch a £15million offer next month.

Even if Leeds could complete a deal in the summer after his deal expired, they would still be required to pay a fee to their Yorkshire rivals.

Given that Leeds are facing strict financial fair play rules, any possible move for Bowen in the summer would depend on whether or not they can secure promotion to the Premier League.

The Whites already have a deal in place to sign Helder Costa permanently in the summer, so should we fail to go up this season any move for Bowen would certainly be off the table.

Leeds fans should take this report with a pinch of salt, as the winger could end up in the Premier League before we even potentially end up there ourselves.
