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.
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.
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.
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.
