Everton: Keane Lewis-Potter wanted by Toffees

Everton: Keane Lewis-Potter wanted by Toffees -Everton News

Everton want to sign Keane Lewis-Potter from Hull City, according to The i‘s Mark Douglas.

The lowdown

Richarlison is attracting interest from Tottenham Hotspur, although the north Londoners have yet to make a bid for the 25-year-old. Everton are demanding a ‘huge’ fee for the Brazil international, but developments can still be expected in the next week.

Lewis-Potter could be a replacement, given that he’s capable of operating as a left winger and second striker in addition to playing on the right.

The 21-year-old Englishman is valued at £10.8m by Transfermarkt, and while his contract technically expires in 12 months’ time, Hull have the option to extend it for a further year.

The latest

The i‘s northern football correspondent Douglas wrote that the Toffees would like to add Lewis-Potter to their ranks.

However, it’s thought that any such move would require ‘serious finance’, and Everton are still ‘tip-toeing’ around Financial Fair Play rules.

The verdict

You can understand why Everton are interested in Lewis-Potter.

He’s already a very good footballer, scoring 12 goals and providing four assists in the Championship last season and scooping Hull’s Player of the Year award, and he’s surely going to get even better over the next few years.

Lewis-Potter received his first England under-21 call-up in March and opened his account at that level with a goal in a 5-0 win over Kosovo on Friday.

He has generated plenty of excitement, with journalist Richard Sutcliffe heralding him as a ‘smashing player‘ and his former manager Grant McCann calling him a ‘special talent‘.

Everton fans may want a more established player to replace Richarlison, but it’s worth remembering where the Brazilian was at when he first came to Goodison Park in 2018. He only managed five goals in his first season in England with Watford and failed to score after 19 November in that campaign.

However, the Toffees saw something in the youngster and have reaped the rewards since, with the 25-year-old going on to score 53 goals for the Merseyside club. Also, Lewis-Potter is the same age now as Richarlison was when he came to Everton…
