Liverpool are showing keen interest in signing Jarrod Bowen this summer.
According to our earlier report, Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the 24-year-old winger who dazzled last season for West Hame United.
Jarrod Bowen is on Liverpool's shortlist for potential attacking targets. Jurgen Klopp a big fan. Whether they reinforce the squad in that area in this window depends largely on whether Origi/Shaqiri move on. #LFC https://t.co/GqbOZf7r8k

Liverpool have signed Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig for £36 million, but they are not done yet.
It has been widely reported that they are looking to offload several fringe players and utilise the money to bring in new faces.
Could Bowen be the next signing for the Reds?
The Hammers paid around £18m to sign him from Hull City in January 2020. Since then, he has been excellent.
He signed a long-term contract with West Ham. They are unlikely to lose him, but if Liverpool come calling, the Hammers will demand a huge fee.
Bowen is most effective playing on the right wing, where Liverpool have arguably the best wide man in the league – Mohamed Salah.
Having said that, the Reds need a strong squad to take the Premier League title back from Manchester City.
Xherdan Shaqiri has shown flashes of brilliance but has never managed to perform consistently. He could be sold this summer if Liverpool receive a decent transfer fee.
Bowen – more energetic, lively and young – would be a natural replacement for him.
It might seem like an underwhelming signing on paper, but if anyone can make Bowen a top-class player, it’s Jurgen Klopp.
