Liverpool had reportedly identified West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen as a ‘potential replacement’ for Divock Origi. 

The 26 year old Belgian has been heavily linked with a move away from Anfield in recent weeks but may now remain until the end of the season. 

Had a move materialised, the Reds are believed to have made plans to pursue a deal for the long-term target Bowen. 

That’s according to a report from the Express, claiming that Liverpool have the Englishman on their radar. 

The report states that the club had ‘lined up’ the 25-year-old former Hull City star. 

This season Bowen has scored six times and registered a further 10 assists in 26 appearances across all competitions – earning a 7.05 Sofascore rating from 20 Premier League outings in the process.

Valued at £31.5million and under contract in East London until 2025 (Transfermarkt), signing the Englishman for a mooted £50million asking price would remain a shrewd deal. 

Albeit relatively unproven at the top level until recently, Bowen has taken to life amongst the elite with ease and would appear to be improving all the time. 

A hardworking, versatile operator with an abundance of quality attributes, it’s no surprise that Jurgen Klopp has already admitted a fondness for the ace. 

With the German now confirming the squad needs its forward options ‘desperately’ in the wake of the FA Cup third-round clash, a surprise swoop for Bowen could still be on the January agenda.
