West Ham could make a move to sign Hull City ace Keane Lewis-Potter in January according to ExWHUemployee.
The 20-year-old Hull attacker is highly rated at the KCOM Stadium and has already been likened to West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen.
The Hammers brought the 24-year-old to the London Stadium from Hull back in January 2020 for around £20 million (BBC).
Bowen has gone on to become a real hit at West Ham, bagging 13 goals and 16 assists in 75 games in all competitions for the East London outfit (Transfermarkt).
David Moyes loves Bowen not only for his attacking output but also for his incredible, tireless work-rate. And it seems as though the Scot could be bringing someone on board with similar attributes to the 24-year-old.
West Ham January move for Hull ace mooted by ExWHUemployee
Talented Tigers ace Lewis-Potter is on the Hammers’ radar.
That’s according to Ex. He told the West Ham Way podcast:
“A player in the Championship who West Ham could look at in January is a forward for Hull called Keane Lewis-Potter. The Hull fans talk of him in the same breath as they do Jarrod Bowen. He’s got the same work ethic, the same potential. He has shown similarities to Bowen and if that’s the case, he might be worth a more serious look at.”
Much like Bowen, Lewis-Potter can play anywhere along the front-line.
The 20-year-old has bagged five goals and four assists in 22 games for Hull this season (Transfermarkt).
The young forward is very hard-working and is a constant menace for opposing defenders.
If Moyes brings Lewis-Potter to the London Stadium and he shows similarities to Bowen, it will be a transfer that every West Ham fan will be instantly on board with.
It must be noted that the 20-year-old has only proven himself at Championship level thus far.
He is valued at around £12 million by Hull (The Sun). And it remains to be seen whether the West Ham board will be prepared to pay that kind of cash for a player who is totally unproven in the Premier League.
