Arsenal are ready to move for Jarrod Bowen after extensively scouting the Hull City winger, reports say.

Bowen caught the Gunners’ eye during a stellar 2018/19 season, which saw the 22-year-old score 22 goals in the Championship.

The Sun claim Arsenal are ready to lodge an official offer and Bowen could be an alternative to Wilfried Zaha.

Crystal Palace are demanding £80m for Zaha and Bowen would be a massively cheaper option.

Hull value Bowen at £15m, but might be willing to accept an offer of £12m.

Arsenal have been watching Bowen since January and consider the Englishman a big talent, however Tottenham are also credited with an interest.

While Unai Emery’s first choice is thought to be Zaha, Arsenal need Palace to dramatically lower their asking price for the forward.

Arsenal have given Emery just £45m to spend this summer and the Spaniard may have to sell to raise further funds.
