With just a day left in this transfer window, various clubs are making their final efforts to refuel their tanks adequately for the business end of the season. Everton haven’t begged to differ as the Daily Mail suggest that they are closely monitoring Hull City’s blossoming youngster, Jarrod Bowen and are keen to sign him.
Bowen is one of the highly rated starlets in the ranks of the Tigers and it would not be surprising if we see his club being reluctant to let him leave the KCOM stadium this month. However, there is no shortage of his admirers as the likes of Newcastle United, Brighton & Hove Albion and Burnley are also understood to have put him on their radar. Thus, it would be intriguing to see which club has the last laugh.
Everton’s apparent interest to make him sign on the dotted line makes sense, for the youngster has been a regular member in Nigel Adkins’ tactical nous in the Championship this season. He has mustered 28 appearances to his name during which he has smashed 11 goals, which is quite impressive.
Predominantly, Bowen is a winger but is capable of plying his trade as a central midfielder as well as a central attacking midfielder. The talented youngster is an excellent crosser of the ball and has the cunning to outfox opposition defenders with his pace and movements. Besides, he is always ready to put in a defensive shift as well.
The Englishman has an element of ease in the way he seamlessly gets past defenders and it is always a compelling sight to see a young man perform so well early on in his career. While he has a lot going for him, there is always scope for improvement and he is expected to be a much better player with time and it clearly looks like he is destined for bigger things.
However, the Toffees do have a plethora of stars in their side and adding another attack-minded player would lead to more congestion. There have been innumerable cases when youngsters fail to cope up with the pressure to perform for bigger clubs and he also lacks the necessary experience to play for a club like Everton. He would definitely be a great signing for any club, but maybe this is not the time to meddle with his developmental process.
