West Ham star Jarrod Bowen would be keen on a move to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
The 25-year-old has been in red-hot form this season and is attracting interest from the Premier League’s top six.
But they would wait until the summer to make a move — and that suits Bowen too.
He scored twice in the Hammers’ 2-0 win over rock-bottom Norwich on Wednesday and wants to stay in East London for David Moyes’ top-four push.
Bowen has netted 17 times in 83 appearances since joining West Ham from Hull in January 2020.
And his five goals and seven assists in the Premier League this season show that he has taken his game to the next level.
Though Liverpool have plenty of options going forward, Klopp would hope Bowen can have the same impact as Diogo Jota, who signed from Wolves 18 months ago.
But they will likely have to stump up a large fee for one of the Hammers’ key players under Moyes.
Van de Beek exit a possiblity
Manchester United have offered Donny van de Beek to Newcastle and Borussia Dortmund on loan this window.
The Dutchman has flopped at Old Trafford, starting just four Premier League games since signing for £35million at the start of last season.
Having lost his place in the Netherlands national set-up, Van de Beek is desperate to leave Manchester in search of regular football.
The Magpies are expected to be the busiest club in the transfer market following their October takeover by Saudi-backed owners.
Dortmund, meanwhile, are six points behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga table and have taken struggling stars on loan previously.
United appear to have accepted that selling the 24-year-old is unlikely given he signed a five-year deal on big wages when he joined.
