Tottenham have reportedly enquired about the availability of West Ham’s most important player and the club’s response is brilliant.

With the way things have gone, there’s very little that could stop Jarrod Bowen from going down as a West Ham legend. His last minute winner in the Conference League final means that he is forever cemented in East London folklore and his world-class form over the past season has only further improved his excellent reputation amongst the Hammers fans.

However, if there was anything that could sour this relationship it would be joining West Ham’s bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur. There’s always been a hatred between the two clubs, but that only seems to be intensifying as the years go by.

So when they enquired about the availability of Bowen, HITC reports, there’s only one thing more hilarious and disrespectful than the Hammers just telling Spurs to go do one and that’s giving them a ridiculous price that they can buy him for.

In order to acquire his services, Tottenham were told that they would have to pay £150 million to their London rivals. On paper, this seems like a ludicrous amount and (in all honesty) it probably is. This would make him the third most expensive player of all time which, as much as Bowen’s sensational, he certainly isn’t worth that amount of money – but that’s the point.

The reason the club gave him a seven year contract is so that he stays at the London Stadium for the majority of his career. It would be idiotic to give him that sort of deal and then let him go. That said, if anyone did want to buy him they’d definitely need to pay more than the £105 million Arsenal paid for Declan Rice, which prices the majority of teams out of a move due to PSR and the clubs that can afford him would rather spend their money elsewhere.

It’s laughable that Tottenham even thought they had a chance of signing our star man and it’s fair to say they won’t come back again in a hurry. You can’t blame them though, it would be nice for them to sign someone who knows what it’s like to not bottle it in the big games.
