Everton have reportedly enquired about the possibility of signing Keane Lewis-Potter this summer.
The Lowdown: Standout season
Lewis-Potter enjoyed a standout season at Hull City, bagging himself a hat-trick of trophies at their 2021/22 Player of the Year awards.
He finished as the Tigers’ top scorer in the Championship with 12 goals, while he also made three assists and was given a team-high four man-of-the-match awards (WhoScored).
Nonetheless, the Englishman is seemingly ready to make the step up to the Premier League, having played every single minute of 46 second tier games last season.
The Latest: Everton enquiry
As per The Daily Mail, the Goodison Park outfit have enquired over signing Lewis-Potter alongside their interest in Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks.
However, the former is also attracting interest from West Ham United.
The Verdict: Sign
Frank Lampard is known for giving young English players a chance, notably handing the likes of Reece James and Mason Mount their Premier League debuts while at Chelsea.
Thus, he is sure to be excited to potentially work with 21-year-old Lewis-Potter, who has been dubbed a ‘quick’ and ‘special talent’ by former Hull boss Grant McCann.
Sheffield United journalist Richard Sutcliffe hailed him as a ‘smashing player‘ after an impressive performance against the Blades last term, so the ceiling looks sky-high for Lewis-Potter.
However, it looks like the Toffees may have to fight off the Hammers in order to bring him to Merseyside.
