West Ham are set to win the £22m race to sign Hull City star Jarrod Bowen, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein.
The reliable journalist tweeted in the early hours of deadline day.
The Hammers are said to have agreed a deal worth £14m up front plus £8m in add-ons and Bowen is keen on the move.
He is subsequently set to have his medical later on Friday, with the east Londoners beating out competition from Crystal Palace to bring him into the club.
Bowen has enjoyed an exceptional season at Championship level, scoring 17 goals in all competitions, and his signing is something of a coup for West Ham.
The 23-year-old has spent six years at Hull, making 131 appearances and scoring 54 goals, while also providing 14 assists.
A right winger by nature, Bowen can also play through the middle and could inject some energy and dynamism into David Moyes’ front line at The London Stadium if the signing is completed.
