“We’re Not Paying That” | Newcastle Plan to Get £100M Bowen on The Cheap

Jarrod Bowen is reportedly Newcastle United’s top target for the right-attacking position according to North East media. There appears to be a growing narrative surrounding a potential offer for Bowen, as The Magpies aim to persuade West Ham to somehow lower the asking price for one of our most valued players.

In a show of absolute arrogance, The Northern Echo have reported that Newcastle are preparing a low ‘more realistic’ offer for Bowen later in the transfer window, following the appointment of Paul Mitchell as the new sporting director.

Furthermore, the Magpies appear convinced that they can not only complete the transfer for West Ham’s star winger but also drive the price down.

The remarkable claims go as far as to suggest that the Toon will look to exploit Bowen’s lack of a relationship with new West Ham head coach Julen Lopetegui. The article goes as far as to suggest that West Ham have completely overvalued their player of the year and that he could be convinced to better serve his ambitions in the northeast.

Ordinarily, I would not place too much stock in second-hand reports; however, the North East media do appear to be in agreement that Bowen is Newcastle’s top transfer target.

One of the reasons why Newcastle may look to drive down the price is the fact that they have been forced to sell in order to buy, due to profit and sustainability regulations. Of course, in an open market, a buying club is welcome to bid whatever they wish but West Ham have no intention of selling Bowen and certainly not on the cheap.

It’s worth reiterating at this time that, irrespective of Newcastle’s interest, Bowen remains happy at West Ham and is settled in the area with his young family.

    Local newspapers representing wishful thinking as news is not serving their readership well. Doomed to gloom I’m afraid.

  • John Ayris says:

    Bowen is twenty seven and he signed a seven year contract. Add he scored twenty goals last season and that’s three elements of being an expensive player.

    Add to that he’s known to be happy which is why he signed such a long contract.

    The days of just spending money on players super wealthy owners will pick up the tab are over, you have to comply with PSR regulations now or have points deducted. Its a game of revenue now and the latest figures I can find are for 2022

    Man C 619 M
    Liverpool 594M
    Man U 583M
    Chelsea 481M
    Tottenham 443M
    Arsenal 368M
    West Ham 255M
    Leicester 215M
    Leeds 189M
    Everton 181M
    Newcastle 180M

    It’s clear who the teams with buying power are.

    • Charlie Farley says:

      Frankly, I don’t see Jarrod Bowen wanting to go to any to the top three clubs on this list. He’s become as West Ham as Mark Noble!!

  • Hammeroo says:

    We need an established right footed left winger. Why don’t West Ham make an offer for Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon? Let’s say for £50 million? I wonder how that would go down.

  • Essexiron67 says:

    From what I’ve been reading Gordon could move to Liverpool, wouldn’t surprise me as he’s mercenary. They could also have to sell Isak or their Brazilian midfielder, can’t spell his name. They are tied by FFP the same as anybody else despite thinking they have got arab investment money to spend. Why have to sell a player only replace with a similar costing player ,carry on dreaming .

  • Digi Aye says:

    NUFC tend to buy younger than 27. Their top target for wide right is Raphinha, also 27, with reports that the clubs already have an agreement, depending on the player, and Barca getting in a replacement before they seal the deal. Both players have transfermarkt valuation of around €50m. Most obvious scenario is one or the other, with a much cheaper, younger understudy brought in at the same time.
