The Lowdown: Lewis-Potter’s career so far
The 21-year-old has firmly cemented himself as one of the most exciting prospects in the Championship. In 44 league appearances for the Tigers this term, the attacker has netted 11 goals and produced four assists. This adds to his impressive overall tally for his boyhood club, which now totals 29 goals.
With the winger’s contract set to expire next summer, Hull will be desperate to hold on to their star man. If this isn’t possible and the player chooses to pursue a move elsewhere, then the Yorkshire club will likely cash in on the youngster this summer whilst his price is high.
The Latest: West Ham in Lewis-Potter transfer race
According to a report by Football Insider, West Ham are in a race with Brentford to secure the services of Lewis-Potter.
It is claimed that Irons manager David Moyes was spotted at the Hull v Millwall game on Easter Monday as he cast an eye over the promising youngster. Bees manager Thomas Frank was also believed to be in attendance.
The Verdict: Shades of Bowen
With Lewis-Potter playing in the same position and possibly coming from the same club, this will likely cause excitement amongst Irons supporters in the hope that the youngster can be something of a Bowen 2.0.
Labelled a “special talent” by former Tigers boss Grant McCann, the 21-year-old has been likened to Premier League legend Eden Hazard, with comparisons made to his “low centre of gravity” and his ability to cut inside and shoot.
Therefore, if Lewis-Potter can emulate what Bowen has gone on to achieve at West Ham, this would be a fantastic signing for Moyes if he can execute it.
