Hull drop major hint they are ready to sell star David Moyes wants at West Ham as bid goes in for Keane Lewis-Potter replacement

Hull have dropped a major hint they are ready to sell star David Moyes wants at West Ham as bid goes in for Keane Lewis-Potter replacement.

West Ham have been heavily linked with a move for Hull’s enigmatic attacker Lewis-Potter in recent months (Hull Daily Mail, The Daily Star).

It is hardly surprising given the success of the last promising attacker West Ham signed from the Tigers – Jarrod Bowen.

West Ham’s interest in Lewis-Potter is very real. So real in fact that Hull’s eccentric owner, Acun Ilicali, recently held an impromptu press conference to address the West Ham transfer rumour over his star player.

And the Tigers’ vice-chairman Tan Kesler admitted it may be difficult to hold on to the England Under 21 star with West Ham one of three Premier League cubs who have already made offers for the exciting talent (Futbol Arena).

Now Hull appear to have dropped a major hint they are ready to sell the star Moyes wants at West Ham as a bid goes in for a potential Lewis-Potter replacement.

Hull have 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.

It is described as an ambitious move by Hull. And given Twine, 22, plays in a very similar style and position to Lewis-Potter it appears to be a pre-emptive move ahead of the latter’s possible sale.

West Ham will be 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.

Should Hull manage to sign Twine it will surely clear the path for West Ham to press home their interest in Lewis-Potter – who scored on his England Under 21s debut last week.

Said Benrahma’s future at the club has been called into question recently with reports he could be sold by Moyes.

And earlier this week on Hammers News we stated the only way a Benrahma sale makes sense is if Lewis-Potter is brought in to replace the Algerian.

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.
