West Ham plot move for Hull City attacker Keane Lewis-Potter - report

West Ham are reportedly plotting a move for Hull City attacker Keane Lewis-Potter as David Moyes eyes attacking reinforcements.

According to the Daily Star, the manager has personally checked up on the 21-year-old and is keen on bringing him to the London Stadium.

He believes that the youngster has the potential of Jarrod Bowen who also joined from Hull City in January 2020.

Good move

Lewis-Potter has enjoyed an outstanding season in the Championship, finding the back of the net on 12 occasions.

He did a good job to keep Hull safe but he certainly deserves to play in the Premier League and West Ham can offer him that chance.

The Hammers desperately need to sign backup attackers in the summer and the 21-year-old can play in a plethora of positions.

Not only is he prolific as a number 10, but he can also do well out on the flanks and would give Moyes plenty of options in the final third.

The youngster may not be ready to be a first-team regular but he could have minutes off the bench every game to get him ready to play in the Premier League.

It took some time for Bowen to get used to the league and Lewis-Potter could also be given that leeway in his first few months.

It remains to be seen if the Hammers do end up signing him ahead of other clubs interested in him.

In other West Ham news, the case has been made for a homegrown youngster to get senior game time.
