Sheffield United are among seven clubs interested in signing Hull City forward Jarrod Bowen, according to 90min.

Newcastle United are thought to currently lead the chase to land Bowen. They face serious competition from Bournemouth, who are looking for a long-term replacement for Ryan Fraser.

Fraser is out of contract next summer and is expected to leave the Cherries on a free transfer.

There are three others from the Premier League also keen on Bowen. The Blades are one of them, with Brighton and Hove Albion and Burnley making up the trio.

Meanwhile, Championship front-runners West Bromwich Albion and Leeds United are keeping tabs as well.

Bowen’s current deal with Hull expires at the end of this season, but that have the option to automatically extend that by a year.

So the Tigers are still in a good position when it comes to negotiation. While they would like Bowen to sign a new contract at the KCOM Stadium, a sizeable offer could convince them to sell.

The Express reported earlier in the campaign that the 22-year-old is valued at around £20m.

Generally considered a winger, the goal scoring talents of Bowen proves he can play more centrally. Only Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic has netted more than his 14 league goals so far this term.

In 2018/19, Bowen finished with 22 strikes in the second tier of English football.

Therefore the Blades are likely to view the Hull youth product as a candidate for one of their two striker roles.

Callum Robinson arrived at Bramall Lane from Preston North End last summer in a similar position. Largely thought of as a left-sided forward, Robinson has since operated as a second striker.

With Bowen’s scoring abilities he too could play in a two-man attack and also finally be given his chance in the top flight.
