The Athletic report that the Baggies are looking at ways to satisfy Hull City to win the signature of in-demand winger Jarrod Bowen, who the Tigers value at £20m despite the 23-year-old attacker having six months remaining on his current deal.
Do West Brom need Bowen?
Yes, he's that extra threat we need
No, what we have is more than enough
The Championship star has been electric this season, but despite Bowen being a potentially massive transfer for the Baggies, West Brom fans on social media weren’t’ convinced that the attacker would move to another Championship side with Premier League sides also reportedly interested in the wide-player as per The Athletic report.
Here’s what some West Brom fans had to say about the club making a move for Bowen, with a few supporters not buying it that the Albion can beat out Premier League sides for the attacker’s signature…
Not a cat in hells chance. He has 6 x months left on his contract so no way will it happen especially if they want 20mil

As Ralph says, you can forget the 6 months nonsense.
The smart money says he’s off to Leicester.
