This is why Tottenham could sign Bowen from West Ham - pundit

Kevin Campbell has poured cold water on the idea of Jarrod Bowen swapping West Ham for Tottenham.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Arsenal and Everton striker predicted the 24-year-old would only leave the London Stadium if he the Irons wanted to cash in.

According to the Independent (September 20th), Spurs are long-term admirers of Bowen.

Scouts from the Lilywhites, Liverpool and Leicester City are said to have regularly watched the winger.

Bowen has four years remaining on the five-and-a-half year deal he signed upon his arrival from Hull City in January 2020.

When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of the report, Campbell said: “I don’t think he’d be interested.

“West Ham are in the Europa League so I don’t even think he would consider it but this is football. Opportunities at West Ham may not always be there for him. Times change. You have got to weigh it up.

“The bottom line is, it comes down to the clubs. West Ham may look to cash in on him and if the club want you to go you have to look down that road. Sometimes you don’t have a choice.

“Right now Bowen is flying at West Ham though so why would he want to leave?.”

Bowen has contributed nine goals and 11 assists in 59 appearances for the Hammers.

He has started all five of David Moyes’ side’s Premier League fixtures this term.
