“I’ve been watching him closely for a long time and the more I see of him, the more he impresses me.
“West Ham are having a fantastic season but it feels like the only players who get singled out regularly for praise are Declan Rice and Michail Antonio. Bowen is just as big a part of it all and has been liberated by not having the pressure of needing to score all the goals, as was the case at Hull.
“In David Moyes, he has a manager who will keep squeezing improvement from him. I’ve been told by those who have played under Moyes that he would often hold back on giving his players praise, as he wanted them to keep their feet on the ground and keep them hungry.
Not a bad shout
Bowen has proved to be an outstanding signing for the club.
Last season, he scored eight goals in all competitions. This season, he has been simply superb with his goals, assists and creativity.
He has managed four goals and seven assists in all competitions so far, and has been most effective while playing on the right-hand side.
England do have a wealth of attacking talents. It is really difficult to get into the squad at the moment, but Bowen is definitely knocking on Southgate’s doors with his consistently high level of performance.
