Newcastle United & chances to £ 15 million Hull City striker to sign Jarrod Bowen has been encouraged by Steve Bruce & # 39; s old co-worker Peter Chapman who gets a new key role in the player's future.
Clubs interested in signing Bowen have been told that Chapman will be Bowen's representative in all discussions, rather than his permanent agents.
Chapman played an important role in Bruce, who was named Hull's manager in 2012 as his honorary president of the club and is perfectly placed to act as a channel between Newcastle and Hull owners Assem and Ehab Allam.
Hull City is set to offer Jarrod Bowen a new bumper contract in the midst of Premier League interest
Bowen is desperate to leave Hull after having scored 39 goals since August 2018 and is regularly at the top of the championship scorecards.
A number of clubs, including Newcastle, West Brom and Leicester have shown interest in the 23-year-old attacker, but Hull has so far resisted the pressure to sell for fear that it is a potential promotional challenge would derail.
Bruce withdrew from the race for Bowen in the summer transfer period due to Hull & # 39; s £ 20 million asking price, but a deal could be made with concerned Chapman.
When Bruce resigned from Hull in 2016, he said: & Special appreciation goes to honorary president Peter Chapman, who played a pat to bring me to the club in 2012. He worked tir elessly in the past four years and I am extremely grateful. & # 39;

Jimenez said: & I have played many games. It was important for me to charge the batteries and come again and become the striker I know I am.

Within the overloaded factory of football talent that is Ajax's youth academy, it was clear to most people that Matthijs de Ligt was special when he was just 14 years old.
He seemed to have had a life-long football intelligence, as well as the technical skill and calm that he could match.
Ajax & # 39; s coaches quickly realized above his classmates and built a war machine. They soon realized that it was not necessary to waste time in its development

& # 39; Matthijs was biologically mature at age 14 & # 39 ;, youth coach Ruben Jongkind recently told Sportsmail
& # 39; Normally speaking the U15 trainer would use it in every match. If you want to prevent the strikers from scoring, Matthijs would defend you.
& # 39; But that is not good for Matthijs. We had to move him for two years to give him the right incentives.
& # 39; When I was in the U15 & # 39; s, I played for the U17 & # 39; s. When I was in the U16 & # 39; s I played for the U19 & # 39; s.
& # 39; I would be a center back in the future, but I had to be challenged about his speed of action. If you play a youth match and you are the best, but you play in the middle back, you play too slowly.
& # 39; We have put him in midfield. He had to play 360 degrees around him and find solutions in small spaces.
& # 39; Despite the fact that he was very young, his movement skills were not up to standard. He didn't walk well. His agility, stability and mobility also had to improve. We worked hard on it with a specialized plan. "

De Ligt was rou
Then an exploration Amsterdam fled to see him in the spirit of eight years old when his local team in Abcoude, a small town five miles from Ajax stadium, sounded the alarm that they had something special. however, the first time there were concerns about his physique and body type.
De Ligt quickly climbed through the junior ranks and reaped the rewards of the club's revised youth, but a quick glance along the sidelines of his slender and skinny father made the scout's spirit focus on her felt ease according to the Dutch writer Henk Spaan.
He did enough to get a place in the team of the first team at only 16, an absurd age, since most center backs normally only peaked after their late twenties.
Of course clearly had the tools to thrive in the professional game. He could dribble from the back, glide across the field to wingers, fizzy the ball in midfield and easily implement the basic defenses.
De Ligt experienced a shameful debut when he won his first senior Holland cap back in 2017

That delay has allowed it: this is the first time that Mino Raiola has been involved in one of these events. other members of Europe & # 39; s elite – such as Manchester United and Manchester City – to dive into the race and make absurd financial offers that could be more enticing.
It is easy to understand why there is such a rush to deal for De Lies over the line. He can at least be the core of a team's defense for the next decade.
If Chelsea are on their way to the Europa League final this week, it may well be one of their own transfer targets who sticks out the leg.
The Blues are one of several big clubs who have been linked to 21-year-old Serbian striker Luka Jovic, who will lead the line for Eintracht Frankfurt in Thursday's Europa League semi-final first leg.
Jovic has electrified the Bundesliga with his brilliant form this season, scoring 25 goals for Frankfurt in one of the most successful seasons in the club's recent history.
Luka Jovic is in the middle of an incredible breakthrough season with Eintracht Frankfurt
Jovic failed at Benfica (pictured playing against his old side this year) before joining Frankfurt
His antics up front have put Eintracht on course for C hampions League qualification, and also carried them through a fairytale European run, with goals against Inter Milan and former club Benfica on the road to the Europa League semi-finals.
The stocky Serbian is now one of Europe's most in -demand strikers, with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid all reportedly lining up bids.
Just two years ago, however, Jovic joined Frankfurt on loan as a Benfica reject, with the Portuguese club happy to offload a player Who they considered to be a liability due to his unprofessional attitude.
Jovic had just been banished to the reserves in Lisbon, and briefly in his first year at Frankfurt, he failed to make an immediate impact. Under then coach Niko Kovac, he played only a bit-part role for much of the season, and remained in the shadows despite a four-game scoring run in March 2018.
It wasn't until Kovac left for Bayern Munich last summer and Austrian coach Adi Hutter arrived at Frankfurt that Jovic truly exploded.
"When I arrived, I found a supremely talented, unbelievably dangerous player," said Hutter or Jovic last month. "I can't say why he didn't work out for him at Benfica."
His value has risen from £ 6million to £ 70m in a season and he is now wanted by Real Madrid
Even initially struggled at Frankfurt, until current coach Adi Hutter (left) turned him around
There is no doubting Jovic's talent. A well-built but dynamic forward with a low center of gravity, Serbia coach Mladen Krstajic has compared him to Barcelona's Luis Suarez. He's a well-rounded striker, blessed with tenacity as well as technique, and driven by a killer instinct in front of goal.
It's little wonder, then, that's a topic of discussion in boardrooms from Camp Well to the King's Road. Frankfurt is keenly aware that they will not be able to hold onto Jovic forever, but whatever his future holds, the club know that they have at least done a good bit of business with the Serbian talent.
Jovic was still a Benfica player until a few weeks ago, but his loan deal contained a crucial clause which allowed Frankfurt to sign him permanently for less than £ 6m. When sporting director Fredi Bobic told Sky Sports about the clause back in March, he couldn't help but break into a grin.

Eintracht sporting director Fredi Bobic couldn't help but smile when asked about Jovic's clause
The option-to-buy, which Frankfurt activated in April, means that the Bundesliga club can hope to make a substantial profit if Jovic does leave for more glamorous pastures. Indeed, his value has rocketed to an estimated £ 70m in less than a year.
Yet Bayern, Real, Barcelona and Co. will not find it easy to prize the Serbian away from Eintracht. Jovic has never been one to make rash decisions, and he reportedly turned down an approach from Arsenal when he was still a teenager.
In a recent interview with Bild, Jovic's father insisted that his son wanted to stay at the club next season, especially if they are secure Champions League football.
That remains on the cards, with Eintracht still three points ahead or fifth-place Borussia Monchengladbach despite being a hero to a 0-0 draw at home to Hertha Berlin on Saturday.

Jovic has not scored in his last three, but Hutter is confident that Frankfurt can beat Chelsea
Yet after picking up just two points from their last three league game es, there are concerns that this inexperienced Frankfurt side may be running out of steam at the end of a brilliant season. Jovic, too, has failed to score in his last three games.
Coach Hutter, however, remains convinced that his side can crown their season with Champions League qualification, and possibly also with a first European final in nearly four
"Nobody should worry about us," said Hutter last weekend. "We have big goals, and we have the chance to write history."
on Wednesday evening. He gave Serbia a lead in the first half in the 1-1 draw in Wolfsburg, taking advantage of a fluke to the ball past Manuel Neuer up close.
It was his first international goal, and only his At 21, Jovic is already a budding superstar in Germany, with the Bundesliga blinded with his
He arrived two years ago in Frankfurt and an unknown borrower, and is now one of Europe & # 39; s most talked about talents, with people like Barcelona and Bayern Munich eager to sign him this summer.
So the Serbian youth is completely fine, and what can we expect from him in the coming years? Sportsmail has the low point on the super attacker of Frankfurt.

Who is Luka Jovic?
After starting his career in Serbia and Cyprus, Jovic caught his big break at the age of 18, £ 6million moves to Benfica in 2016. A year later he was loaned to Eintracht Frankfurt , and this is where his career really began.
His loan spell coincided with two of the most successful years in the recent history of Frankfurt, as the club f last season the German cup won under Niko Kovac, and now enjoys an exciting run in Europe.
Especially this year, Jovic took the lead.
He beat five past Fortuna Dusseldorf in one game last fall and was instrumental in the Frankfurt fairy tale. run to the quarterfinals of the Europa League and earn seven goals in ten games.

He is a pretty efficient goal scorer, but Jovic is more than just a poacher.
He is an elegant finisher and has the ingenuity to lose his marker in the set, but there is also a more scrappy side to his game.
Think Lewandowski improved with a healthy inj ection of Carlos Tevez. An elegant, silent killer with a bit of terrier tenacity that is blown in for good order.

Luis Suarez, maybe? Serbia coach Mladen Krstajic compared Jovic with the Barcelona frontman last week.
I would say he looks like Suarez.
& # 39; He is brave and dangerous at all times because he is always lurking, waiting for his chance, and he will always use the smallest time of concentration.

Strictly speaking, yes.
As Frankfurt sports director Fredi Bobic revealed in March last year, the loan includes a squeeze-out clause that the German club to buy Jovic directly for & under € 7 million & # 39; (£ 6 million).
& # 39; It was a pretty good deal & # 39 ;, Bobic chuckled at the time, and with Jovic's estimated value now around £ 40 million, it's hard to disagree with him. Somewhere in Lisbon, someone has to feel pretty stupid.
