Newcastle United’s transformation under Eddie Howe is evident, but they are yet to clinch any major trophies.
Their significant victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League exemplifies the potential they hold.
To maintain this momentum and possibly secure their first major title since the 1950s, the support and atmosphere at St. James’ Park will be crucial.
However, to ensure that their success isn’t fleeting, the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF), backing Newcastle, should continue acquiring top-notch European talents.
A prime target in this regard is West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen.
Though not universally labeled as ‘elite’, Bowen’s prowess in front of the goal has turned heads, making him one of the most sought-after strikers. His current market valuation stands at about €38m/£32m.
Interestingly, Bowen seems unhurried in finalizing a new contract with West Ham.
This hesitance has led to speculations – perhaps the terms being proposed don’t resonate with his expectations.
Given his exceptional form, West Ham fans will undeniably be disappointed if the club fails to secure his services for the upcoming prime years of his career.
Notably, aside from Newcastle, Liverpool is also rumored to be interested in the striker.
This developing situation presents an intriguing opportunity for the Magpies and other contenders in the hunt for Bowen’s signature.
