Huge boost for West Ham in David Moyes move to sign the new Jarrod Bowen after exciting claim

There has been a huge boost for West Ham in David Moyes’ move to sign the new Jarrod Bowen after an exciting claim.

West Ham have been heavily linked with a move for exciting Hull City attacker Keane Lewis-Potter this summer (Hull Daily MailThe Daily Star).

As reported by Hammers news last weekend, Hull recently appeared to drop big hints they could be willing to cash in on the England Under 21 star.

First Tigers’ vice-chairman Tan Kesler admitted it may be difficult to hold on to Lewis-Potter with West Ham one of three Premier League cubs who have already made offers for the exciting talent (Futbol Arena).

Then Hull made a £3m bid for MK Dons attacking midfield starlet Scott Twine according to Telegraph journalist John Percy – as reported by The 72 and a host of other outlets.

Given Twine, 22, plays in a very similar style and position to Lewis-Potter, many have suggested it is a pre-emptive move from Hull ahead of the latter’s possible sale.

West Ham will undoubtedly have been hugely encouraged by the fact Hull have bid for Twine, who scored 20 goals in 50 games in all competitions last term and also chipped in with 13 assists.

This week The Athletic claimed Lewis-Potter is one of three big signings West Ham are focusing their attentions on next following the arrival of Nayef Aguerd for £30m.

Now there has been a further huge boost for West Ham in Moyes’ move to sign the played dubbed the new Bowen after an exciting new claim.

According to 90min, West Ham are leading the race to sign Lewis-Potter after Hull rejected approaches from both Brentford and Watford.

“West Ham are the current frontrunners to sign versatile forward Keane Lewis-Potter from Hull City, 90min understands, after Brentford and Watford had bids rejected,” 90min reports.

90min understands that the Bees have had a bid for Lewis-Potter turned down by Hull, as have Watford – who are back in the Championship after being relegated from the Premier League in their first season back in the top flight…

“Sources have confirmed to 90min that the club (West Ham) are still interested in pursuing a deal – although nothing has been formalised as yet. The Hammers are currently considered favourites to sign Lewis-Potter, with manager David Moyes keen to fill out a squad that will be playing European football for a second consecutive season in 2022/23.”

Keane Lewis-Potter would be a superb signing for West Ham.

The 21-year-old operates mostly as a left or right winger but he can also play through the middle as a centre-forward.

He was on fire in League One for Hull in the 2020/21 season, bagging 13 goals and six assists in 43 league games (Transfermarkt).

And the youngster bagged 12 goals and four assists in 46 games last term.
