Liverpool have had no problem scoring goals in their last Premier League season.
With 30 league games played, the ‘reds’ have found the net 77 times, more than any other top-flight team has managed to score this season.
One figure, in particular, who has contributed much to Liverpool’s attacking power in recent months is winger Mohamed Salah.
Having appeared in 28 league games, the 29-year-old Egyptian has scored 20 goals and provided ten assists along the way, which is more contributions to the league than any other Reds player has been able to deliver.
Despite the 29-year-old’s lethality in front of goal, it appears the Merseyside club could be looking to bring in another attacking talent who could dethrone the iconic Liverpool star in the near future.
Which is the news?
According to journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, West Ham United winger Jarrod Bowen is one name on a list of players identified by the Reds for a potential summer transfer.
Since arriving at the east London club in the January 2020 transfer window from Hull City, the Englishman has scored 22 goals and provided 21 assists in 93 appearances in all competitions, before their Europa League clash. against Lyon.
Signing ‘massive’ by Liverpool
With nine goals and eight assists to his name in 29 league appearances this campaign, the 25-year-old has earned an overall performance rating of 7.23/10 from WhoScored, making him the highest-rated player in the David Moyes team. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that Pablo Fornals calls him a “huge” player for the club.
Would you take Jarrod Bowen to Liverpool?
To highlight the attacking threat that the £75m-valued former Hull star represents, he has managed to rack up more shots on goal this season (29) than Diogo Jota, Bukayo Saka and Raheem Sterling, among many others.
While Salah may have more goalscoring contributions than Bowen, the West Ham figure has proven to be a much more defensive attacker by making 55 more tackles and 45 interceptions than the £90m valued gem.
Having been called an “incredible” player by Klopp in the past, as well as being a “special” talent by Sports IndexBowen would certainly be a solid addition to a team that already has plenty of Liverpool attacking.
Considering the Hammers star is a few years younger than Salah, he could well be a potential replacement for the Reds winger if his contract situation isn’t resolved and he ends up leaving.
