Leicester City opinion: Jarrod Bowen to Leicester – good move?
The reports further add that this is particularly because new manager Brendan Rodgers is an admirer of the free-scoring Championship starlet.
Currently contracted to Hull City, the 22-year-old has been on a sensational run in the Championship, with 20 goals to his name. That puts him among the top goalscorers in the second-tier, sitting just four goals behind second place Tammy Abraham.
Jarrod Bowen is the only winger in the top-ten. A talented wide player, the 22-year-old is among the best in his position in the Championship.
Powerful, very quick off the mark and a footballing intelligence to match all that, Bowen has showcased that he has the ability to flourish anywhere.
That’s something that Leicester City have missed terribly this season, after losing Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City. Demarai Gray was supposed to step-up and recreate some of the Algerian’s magic but has failed to do so.
Rachid Ghezzal was signed, alongside James Maddison, to help replicate the creativity that Mahrez provided but only Maddison has flourished. To make things worse, they had to recall Harvey Barnes back to the team. While the young forward has done admirably, they need more.
The Foxes need more energy, more creativity and more clinical finishing from other players. Jamie Vardy is 32 years old and will not be able to keep hitting his best for too much longer. It’s one of the many reasons why Leicester City need Bowen and the 22-year-old needs the Foxes just as much.
He needs a move to be able to test himself and see if he can ever make a mark in the Premier League. Leicester City will offer him that, and the Foxes under Brendan Rodgers have already shown a propensity to play the younger members of their squad.

Jarrod Bowen needs the move as much as Leicester City need the 22-year-old forward. They need a proven and reliable goalscorer, someone who can make an impact, alongside their other stars. This move would be a win-win for both parties.
