Jarrod Bowen TEAMtalk

West Ham are set to complete the deadline day signing of Hull forward Jarrod Bowen after reportedly agreeing a £22million transfer.

Premier League rivals Crystal Palace have also been linked with the 23-year-old, who has scored 17 goals and added six assists in 32 games in all competitions for the Tigers this season.

But reports claim that Bowen has picked the Hammers.

Palace, who sit 11th in the table six places above David Moyes’ strugglers, were reported to have tabled a £16m bid for the highly-rated attacker.

But, according to The Athletic, West Ham then came in with a bigger offer of £14m plus £8m in add-ons.

Bowen has certainly proven his quality in the Championship over the last three campaigns, scoring 14 goals in the 2017/18 season and then 22 last term.

It is claimed he will undergo a medical with the east London club on Friday morning, with a view to the deal being rubber-stamped and announced before the 11pm transfer deadline.
