Liverpool's search for a new forward is ongoing, with Jarrod Bowen reportedly the latest name to be added to the club's shortlist.

Per Statsbomb's shot-creating actions metric — which covers the two offensive actions directly leading to a shot, such as passes, dribbles and drawing fouls — Bowen averaged 2.7 per 90 last season, whereas Jota averaged 3.6 per 90.

The English talent could be included in Liverpool's thinking but given the data-driven decisions often made by the Reds, it is reasonable to suggest that Bowen will rank further down on the shortlist than Jota was when he secured his high-profile transfer.

The Reds appear to have a specific criteria when it comes to chasing attackers, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Diogo Jota fitting the bill of players with bags of potential who also possess enough quality to deliver immediately upon their arrival on Merseyside.

This suggests that Bowen potentially benefited from the finishing quality of his West Ham teammates last season.

Bowen vaguely seems to match the criteria but based on his underlying numbers, how closely does his last Premier League campaign compare to Jota's final season at Wolves before his £40m switch?

However, the shots per 90 averages posted by the pair are different, with Jota taking 2.7 compared to Bowen's 1.9.
