James Pearce names West Ham star Klopp admires as surprise Liverpool target on club’s transfer shortlist

Posted by

James Pearce has reported that Liverpool are tracking West Ham United star Jarrod Bowen, with the 24-year-old admired by Jurgen Klopp.

This comes from The Athletic, with the reporter claiming that the Merseysiders’ hopes of bolstering the forward line will be influenced by the futures of Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi.

With the pair proving to be somewhat unreliable backup options for starters Mo Salah and co. it’s thought that the Reds would not stand in the way of either player leaving in the summer window.

It’s not a link many would have been inclined to jump on, though certainly one we’d be foolish to rule out given our transfer history.

There was a steady queue forming to criticise Liverpool’s moves for the likes of Andy Robertson and Gini Wijnaldum from lower-ranked outfits before their quality in the famous red shirt shone clearly for all to see.

Being capable of playing across the front-three positions, not to mention his age (24), Pearce is right to point out that the Hammers star possesses the right qualities our recruitment team is said to be prioritising in the window.

Given his contract runs until 2025, however, David Moyes will be more than capable of putting up a fight to keep his star player in London – a fight we’ll certainly find difficult to engage in without further outgoings.

  1. Sorry but you will have to look elsewhere, Bowen is a very important part of West Ham’s plans, especially with European competition, ie he is not for sale.
