Seagulls boss Chris Hughton is known to be on the look out for a new forward before the transfer window slams shut on Wednesday, and the highly-rated Bowen is known to be a target.
Bowen scored and impressed as the struggling Championship club sealed a spot in the fifth round of the FA Cup with a 2-1 home win over Nottingham Forest on Saturday, and there is no shortage of interest.
The 21-year-old is rated in the £8million bracket and such a fee could be seen as a snip in today’s market.
Everton and Newcastle United are also said to be tracking the forward ahead of the deadline, but Tigers boss Nigel Adkins was firm in his stance that Bowen will not be sold this month.
“We’re not looking to sell Bowen, we want to build things at City,” he said when quizzed about the rumours. “We have to keep looking to the future and we don’t want to let young players go.”
Despite Adkins’ stance, Brighton could still try and test his resolve before the deadline by making an offer they would struggle to refuse.
