West Ham United are all set to open talks to sign Hull City attacker Keane Lewis-Potter ahead of the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from The Athletic who claim that Hull will demand around £18 million for the talented 21-year-old.
Hammers boss David Moyes has enjoyed huge success by signing players from the Championship in the past.
The Scot has brought Jarrod Bowen, Said Benrahma and Craig Dawson to the London Stadium from England’s second tier over the past two years.
And he could be set to go down the same route in the summer transfer window.
One area of Moyes’s squad that is in desperate need of attention is his attacking department. The Scot usually likes to sign versatile attackers who can operate anywhere along the front-line. So a move to sign the talented Hull City youngster would make perfect sense…
West Ham to open talks to sign Keane Lewis-Potter
The Athletic claims that the Hammers are on the cusp of opening talks with Hull about prising the young forward away from the MKM Stadium in the summer.
The deal could cost West Ham around £18 million.
We believe that would represent fantastic value for the East London outfit. Keane Lewis-Potter would be a great signing for West Ham.
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 so far this season (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.
£18 million for someone with so much talent and potential could end up being a massive steal for the Hammers.
And if David Moyes brings Keane Lewis-Potter to West Ham in the summer, it should be a signing that we all get behind.
