TAKE A BOW West Ham look to hijack Crystal Palace’s £15m transfer for Jarrod Bowen as hunt for Hull star hots up

West Ham are making a dramatic late move for Hull City’s goalscoring wide man Jarrod Bowen.

David Moyes is poised to swoop after opening talks with the Tigers, who are concerned that their star will not sign a contract and could leave for nothing at the end of next season.

Hull wanted £20million for Bowen but so far only an inventive offer from Leeds United of a £3m loan plus a £15m promotion bonus has come near to that total.

Moyes plans to offer £12m plus around £5m in extras to land the 23-year-old and give his struggling team a badly needed lift.

Hull are likely to accept and Bowen will jump at the Premier League riches and a shot at the big time after serving his time in the Championship.

Crystal Palace also made an enquiry but would only offer around £10m plus extras and Hull want more.

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has been watching developments but is yet to take the plunge.

He may yet still be in the market for an extra attacker in the final days of the window.

However Palace are in a strong position to close the deal as they have money to spare and want new players for Roy Hodgson’s squad.

Young full-back Nathan Ferguson, 19, is due to arrive for £10m having broken into the West Brom team in the summer.

But he will not be replacing Patrick van Aanholt after Hodgson made clear on Thursday that the Dutchman is not for sale despite a bid from PSV Eindhoven.
