Hammers boss David Moyes may well be keen to bolster his attacking ranks further still.

Michail Antonio os still the only recognised senior centre-forward at the London Stadium. That clearly isn’t good enough for a team with European aspirations.

The Scot usually likes to sign flexible, versatile attackers who can operate anywhere along the frontline.

And it seems as though the Hammers boss may well have his eye on the man for the job.

West Ham United want to sign Hull City ace Keane Lewis-Potter

That’s according to TEAMtalk.

The 20-year-old is a former teammate of Jarrod Bowen, so the 24-year-old has undoubtedly told Moyes all about the Hull ace’s ability.

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 three goals and two assists in 12 games to his name so far this season (Transfermarkt).

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 Bowen.

Lewis-Potter is a top talent:

So it is little wonder why West Ham are interested in signing the Hull City starlet.

The Tigers could demand as much as £5 million for the youngster (Yorkshire Post). That could end up being a real bargain for the Hammers.
