West Ham are allegedly eyeing a double transfer swoop for Hull City duo Keane Lewis-Potter and Jacob Greaves in the summer window.
That’s according to a report from 90 Min who claims that the Hammers could face competition from Premier League rivals Brentford for the talented young Hull duo.
West Ham manager David Moyes desperately needs to bolster his attacking and central defensive ranks at the London Stadium in the summer.
The Scot tried to do exactly that during the January transfer window but failed to do so eventually.
This summer will be a vital transfer window for the Hammers and David Moyes has a lot of work to do with so many West Ham players set to be either out of contract or moved on before the start of next season.
And it seems as though Moyes could be targeting a double swoop from one club in particular to help solve two problem areas at the London Stadium…
West Ham eyeing bold double Championship transfer swoop
90 Min reckon that the Hammers are monitoring Hull City pair Keane Lewis-Potter and Jacob Greaves closely ahead of the summer transfer window.
Lewis-Potter and Greaves, both 21, have really impressed for Hull in the Championship this season in spite of their club’s poor form in the league.
Hull are currently sitting in 20th position in the Championship table. Quite where they would be without the talented young duo, however, is anyone’s guess.
Lewis-Potter 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).
The youngster has six goals and four assists in 34 games to his name so far this season (Transfermarkt).
Hull could demand as much as £20 million for Lewis-Potter according to the Hull Daily Mail.
Meanwhile, Greaves is an uncompromising central defender who is quick along the ground and impressive with the ball at his feet.
He has also made 34 appearances for the Tigers this term. During those outings, he has averaged 1.9 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 3.7 clearances per game. He has also won an average of 3.7 aerial duels per match (Who Scored).
The 21-year-old centre-back is supposedly valued at around £1 million (Daily Mail).
£21 million for the Hull City duo would represent fantastic business for West Ham in my opinion. Of course there are no guarantees that either of them will succeed in the Premier League but no transfer comes without any kind of risk nowadays.
Whether we will be able to beat Brentford to the exciting young Championship duo remains to be seen though.
