Arsenal has been linked with several players prior to the upcoming 2019 transfer market. Jarrod Bowen is one of them. According to reports, the Gunners is ready to make a move for Jarrod Bowen after extensively scouting the Hull City winger. Jarrod Bowen caught the Gunners' eye during his stellar 2018-2019 season. The 22-year-old scored 22 goals in the Championship which is pretty impressive.
A report claims the Gunners are ready to lodge an official offer for Jarrod Bowen. It seems they considered Jarrod Bowen as a good choice if they couldn't land Wilfried Zaha in the Emirates Stadium this summer. As you know, Arsenal is keen on signing Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace this summer. But Crystal Palace is unwilling to let him go, otherwise, they would sell him to Arsenal if only they could meet their asking price, which is up to 100 million pounds. And we all know, Unai Emery did not have the budget as the club reduce his summer budget after they didn't get to play for Champions League this season. Therefore, Jarrod Bowen would be a massively cheaper option for the Gunners. According to reports, Arsenal is plotting a 12 million pounds bid for Jarrod Bowen. You could see a huge gap between those two prices.
Hull City Asking Price Is 15 Million Pounds
On the other hand, Hull City value Jarrod Bowen at 15 million pounds, but probably they might be willing to accept Arsenal's bid. Arsenal has been watching Jarrod Bowen since January and it seems they considered the Englishman as a big talent. But they are not the sole suitor for the talented young man. Tottenham Hotspur is also reported having tried scouting Jarrod Bowen since January.
As mega888 mentioned before, Unai Emery's first choice is Wilfried Zaha, but they need Crystal Palace to dramatically lowered their asking price if they want to get the deal over the line. But Crystal Palace has no obligation to let Wilfried Zaha leaves Selhurst Park this summer, even though the player himself already confirmed he wants to play for the Gunners, a club he's supported since his childhood times.
