According to the Daily Mail, Newcastle and Everton are both keen on completing a late January deal for Hull City attacking midfielder Jarrod Bowen.
The prolific 21-year-old was watched by the duo during the Tigers weekend’s F.A Cup 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest, while Burnley and Brighton were part of 6 other Premier League outfits that came to run the rule over him.
Bowen didn’t disappoint, scoring and assisting as the Championship strugglers booked a spot in the 5th round of the competition.
No midfielder in the division has scored more than the 11 the former Hereford United man has weighed in in 24 starts, and he could help add goals to both Everton and Newcastle.
The 2 have averaged just a goal per game in the EPL this term, and Bowen could help contribute a handful now and going forward if snapped up.
Hull City risk dropping to the League One if they let the talented youngster go, but a very juicy offer could see them part ways with their most prized possession.
Neither the Toffees nor Magpies are favorite to land Bowen, and an 8-way battle could happen between now and Wednesday’s transfer deadline for his signature.
