West Ham insider claims Tottenham are 'big fans' of £20m ace in January blow for David Moyes

Tottenham allegedly could be set to hijack West Ham United’s move to sign Hull City starlet Keane Lewis-Potter in the January window.

That’s according to a report from club insiders Claret and Hugh.

They claim that they’ve been told by sources at Tottenham that the north London club are very keen to sign the talented 20-year-old Hull attacker.

West Ham boss David Moyes wants to bring Lewis-Potter to the London Stadium in the January transfer window according to the likes of Hull Daily Mail and The Times.

However, it seems as though the Hammers manager won’t have things all his now way with Tottenham thought to be sniffing around the talented young forward as well.

Tottenham to deal January blow to West Ham?

Claret and Hugh claims that Spurs boss Antonio Conte is a big fan of Hull youngster Lewis-Potter.

Tottenham have allegedly been keeping a close eye on the 20-year-old’s performances for the Tigers this season.

If the north London club beat us to the Hull starlet’s signature, it would be a really big blow. He really is a hugely exciting talent.

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.

It’s little wonder why Keane Lewis-Potter is attracting attention from West Ham and Tottenham. Finding a talented young player with a top-class work-rate these days is extremely rare.

The Hammers and Spurs will both be desperate to get this one over the line. He won’t come cheap though. Hull could demand as much as £20 million for the 20-year-old according to the Hull Daily Mail.

That may well end up looking like a bargain for either West Ham or Tottenham in a few year’s time, however.
