Andriy Yarmolenko is set to leave West Ham this summer with Keane Lewis-Potter reportedly being lined up to replace him.
That’s according to a report from The Guardian who claims that Hammers boss David Moyes has been looking at the possibility of signing the Hull City youngster.

Moyes is expected to be a very busy man in the summer transfer window with plenty of outgoings and incomings expected at the London Stadium.
One of the players who is almost certain to leave is Andriy Yarmolenko with the Ukrainian’s contract set to expire next month.
If and when the 32-year-old does leave the London Stadium, Moyes will have to bolster his wide attacking ranks and it seems as though the Scot has someone specific in mind for the job…
West Ham want Hull ace Keane-Lewis-Potter to replace Yarmolenko
The 21-year-old Hull attacker is firmly on the Hammers’ radar ahead of the summer transfer window (The Guardian).
With Yarmolenko set to leave the London Stadium, the talented youngster is expected to come in and fill the Ukrainian’s shoes.
We think that Lewis-Potter would be a fine addition for West Ham this summer.
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 last season, bagging 13 goals and six assists in 43 league games (Transfermarkt).
And the youngster has 12 goals and four assists in 46 games to his name this term (Transfermarkt).
Lewis-Potter is a real live-wire, has impressive pace and is a very good finisher. In many ways, he is similar to his old teammate Jarrod Bowen.
Hull could demand as much as £20 million for Lewis-Potter according to the Hull Daily Mail.
And we think that if the Hull ace is signed to replace Yarmolenko, it would be superb business for West Ham.
