Tottenham missed golden opportunity to land Jarrod Bowen in 2019

Tottenham Hotspur FC have been shrewd in their transfer dealings under Daniel Levy, with the 62-year-old hardly letting a good deal go by his palms; however, when he does, it becomes a highlight, and that has become the case with West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen.

The North Londoners missed an opportunity to land the West Ham ace in 2019 before his eventual switch to London Stadium, per Football.London. The 27-year-old could have been representing Spurs at EURO 2024 with the Three Lions badge on his heart, though that’s not the case. This missed opportunity is particularly notable given Bowen’s impressive performances for the Hammers, which have earned him a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

With the way he glides across the pitch, especially on transitions, it should not be long before we see him playing for an elite side, and it could have been Tottenham if not for the decision they took in 2019. Football. London understands that the club expressed strong interest in bringing Bowen from Hull City. 

There have been reports from the same year stating Lilywhites interest in Bowen, with Spurs scouts urging then manager Jose Mourinho to look at the right-winger. However, the club decided to go ahead and sign Jack Clarke from Leeds United instead.

West Ham ended up signing Bowen just six months after Tottenham denied them the opportunity when the Hammers moved to London Stadium for around £22 million. Given how he has thrived for the East Londoners, the officials at Hotspur Way would be kicking themselves. He has scored 20 goals in all competitions in the recently concluded season while accumulating ten assists at the same time.
