Premier League pair Southampton and Newcastle United are lining up a January move for Hull City forward Jarrod Bowen, according to the Daily Express.
The Tigers’ star has shone in the second tier in recent times, making the team of the season last term, after finding the back of the net on 22 occasions, a record he is looking like emulating during this campaign.
Southampton and Newcastle are both going to be looking for firepower in January, as they bid to remain in the Premier League come May, and Bowen is someone who is interesting the pair of them.
Should the Saints make a move for him and get their man, the Hull star would be the second leading light they will have signed from the Championship, having already bagged Che Adams from Birmingham City in the summer.
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has already worked out that his side are going to struggle to score goals with the current personnel he has at his disposal, and is expected to rectify that in January, in a bid to keep his hometown club in the top flight at the end of the season.
Bowen has had to make it to the big time the hard way, having spent the early part of his career in non-league, until Hull swooped to take him away from Hereford United.
He has gone on to become a huge success for the Tigers, keeping them in the division last term, but with the KCOM Stadium outfit struggling in the second tier once again this time around, the attacker could be lured away from another relegation battle to ply his trade in the Premier League.
Hull are expected to hold out for their full valuation of their prize asset, which is believed to be £20 million, but that would be a small price to pay for both Newcastle and Southampton, if signing him meant remaining in the top flight.
