Report: West Ham can sign 'excellent' attacker for £6m less than at the start of January

West Ham will have to pay £14 million if we want to sign Hull City attacker Keane Lewis-Potter in the January transfer window.

That’s according to a report from the Hull Daily Mail who claim that the Tigers do not want to sell the 20-year-old but could be tempted if they are presented with an attractive offer for his services.

West Ham boss David Moyes wants to bring the talented young forward to the London Stadium this month according to reports from Hull Daily Mail and The Times.

Earlier on in the month, it was suggested that Hull wanted at least £20 million for Lewis-Potter (Hull Daily Mail).

The 20-year-old is a really bright young talent and would be an exciting addition for the Hammers.

And it seems as though we may well now be able to sign him for a more reasonable fee than was first thought…

West Ham could sign Hull attacker for reduced fee in January

Hull Daily Mail claim that Tigers owner Acun Ilicali is now prepared to sell Keane Lewis-Potter in the January transfer window but only for a minimum of £14 million.

That actually sounds like pretty good value to us.

Lewis-Potter is a bright, enthusiastic young forward. He has bagged five goals and four assists in 26 Championship outings for Hull so far this season (Transfermarkt).

Last season, he racked up 13 goals and six assists in 43 league games (Transfermarkt).

Hull boss Grant McCann recently described the talented 20-year-old as an ‘excellent player’ (Hull’s official website).

The young star most plays out on the left wing but he can play anywhere along the front-line.

The 20-year-old 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.

If Moyes thinks Lewis-Potter has the ability to emulate the 25-year-old West Ham star, £14 million will be an absolute snip and the Scot should not hesitate to bring him to the London Stadium in the January window.

Whether the Hammers manager sees the 20-year-old Hull starlet as a priority addition this month, however, remains to be seen.
