Jarrod Bowen on Liverpool shortlist as new transfer hints emerge
Liverpool’s interest in West Ham United striker Jarrod Bowen – which the club have refused to deny – suggests the spending is not over in the summer transfer window.
Liverpool have only signed one signing after securing a £ 36million deal with RB Leipzig for defender Ibrahima Konate.
A deal for Bowen could be difficult. He is young and English and Liverpool could be forced to pay far beyond the odds if they want West Ham to even consider selling one of their most valuable assets.
Still, while the club remain adamant they would be prepared to wait until next summer for the right opportunities to present themselves in the transfer market, ties to Bowen show there is a desire to strengthen Klopp’s options as soon as possible. as possible.

Paris Saint-Germain consider £ 400million window of opportunity to leave Liverpool behind
The coronavirus pandemic has destroyed the finances of many major European clubs, but not that of PSG.
The French side entered the pandemic following lucrative business deals and, combined with the wealth of its millionaire owners, was able to use financial restrictions on other clubs as a springboard.
PSG signed Sergio Ramos, Gini Wijnaldum, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Achraf Hakimi this summer as well as an extension of Neymar’s contract.
With these additions – and a potential new deal for Kylian Mbappe – PSG will increase their annual spending on salaries to almost £ 400million, eclipsing Liverpool by around £ 55million.
Their aggressive summer recruiting campaign, largely for established artists with a track record of major national and international success, shows that PSG are serious and are ready to push the boat to achieve that goal.
For Liverpool, this will make the challenge of adding a seventh European Cup to their cabinet even more difficult given that the state owners of PSG are able to hand them billions without consequence.
