West Ham planning bid for Hull starlet Keane Lewis-Potter

West Ham United are planning a bid for Hull City starlet Keane Lewis-Potter.

The Daily Star says the Tigers forward 21, enjoyed an excellent campaign in the Championship, rattling 12 goals for the Yorkshire outfit. That proved crucial in keeping Hull safe - and caught the attention of several top flight clubs, including the Hammers.

Irons boss David Moyes has personally checked up on Lewis-Potter and feels he has the potential to follow in the footsteps of Jarrod Bowen. The Londoners paid £18million for then-Hull winger Bowen in January 2020 and have since seen him develop into one of the country's leading playmakers.

Many expect the Hammers ace, with 18 goals in 50 appearances this season, to be named in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the first time on Tuesday. Despite avoiding relegation last season after finishing 19th in the second tier, Hull face a major battle to keep hold of Lewis-Potter once the summer window opens.

They value the English youngster at £15m and know that, even if West Ham opt to look elsewhere to boost their squad, there are other Premier League outfits waiting to pounce. Leicester are long-term admirers of Lewis-Potter, while Tottenham have also entered the equation. They have been keeping a close watch on his progress in recent months upon the recommendation of their former manager, David Pleat.
