The 25-year-old has long been mentioned as a potential Mohamed Salah replacement at Liverpool.
After those well-known Saudi connections in the summer, it’s more likely that those doors will knock again, which just raises the likelihood that the Egypt star will head for the exit.
Regardless, Jarrod Bowen’s name has frequently appeared on Liverpool’s transfer radar.
Most recently, talkSPORT reported that Merseysiders and Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United were “on alert” due to the fact that his contract negotiations were stalling.
Well, Fabrizio Romano put that to rest on Twitter on Saturday night by claiming Jarrod Bowen’s new long-term contract with the Hammers is “all done” — something that will no doubt please actor and West Ham supporter Danny Dyer.
He described as “unbelievable” the England international who is dating his daughter.
Liverpool will now have to look elsewhere if the worst case scenario occurs and Mohamed Salah departs.
The new West Ham contract for Jarrod Bowen.
Jarrod Bowen and West Ham have reached an “EXCLUSIVE” long-term agreement, according to Romano.
“It’s all done, one more fantastic piece of news for the WHUFC winger following the England NT call.
Bowen wanted to remain a crucial component of the project.
Jarrod approved of the last request.

Life after Salah for Liverpool
Salah would prefer to finish his career wearing the Liverpool colors, if it were up to the fans at Anfield.
The concern is that the 31-year-old will depart sooner rather than later given the money that is currently in Saudi Arabia and the project they are building.
While illustrious players like Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, and Sadio Mane have moved on.
Salah’s potential departure will undoubtedly anger the fans the most because, as of right now, he could legitimately claim that he belongs in Liverpool’s greatest-ever XI.
Salah hopes to lead this Liverpool 2.0 to another adventure of winning the major trophies, but none of that has occurred as of yet.
