The Daily Star have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur face competition from West Ham United and Leicester City for Hull City starlet Keane Lewis-Potter.

Lewis-Potter has enjoyed a breakthrough season at the MKM Stadium, with the winger’s 12 goals and four assists in the Championship (Transfermarkt) being crucial to Hull preserving their Championship status.

The Daily Mail reported back in March that the 21-year-old was on Tottenham’s radar ahead of the summer transfer window, with West Ham also credited with an interest in the youngster.

This has now been backed up by The Daily Star, who claim that Spurs have been keeping a ‘close eye’ on the youngster at the recommendation of former manager David Pleat.

The report adds that West Ham and Leicester are also on Lewis-Potter’s trail, with David Moyes particularly keen on the winger after having personally checked up on him.

It is alleged that the Hammers feel the England Under-21 international has the potential to follow in the footsteps of Jarrod Bowen, who has evolved into one of the Premier League’s most potent attackers since moving to the London Stadium from Hull back in 2020.

The Telegraph add that the Tigers value Lewis-Potter at around £15m ahead of the summer transfer window.

Spurs Web Opinion

Lewis-Potter’s ceiling is evidently very high and if we were to allow him to go to West Ham or Leicester, I suspect we will end up regretting not going hard for him, just as we have with the likes of Grealish, Bowen and Eze. 

I would not be surprised if Paratici follows his modus operandi of signing Lewis-Potter and loaning him back to Hull City for one more season. However, the 21-year-old might feel he has a better chance of becoming a regular starter at West Ham or Leicester than he does at Spurs.
