West Ham are leading Tottenham and a host of other clubs in the race to sign Hull City winger Keane Lewis-Potter, according to 90min. 

Lewis-Potter enjoyed a stellar breakthrough campaign with the Tigers registering 12 goals and four assists to help retain their Championship status (Transfermarkt). 

The 21-year-old’s displays reportedly led to Spurs naming him as one of their transfer options before the opening of the window (Daily Mail). 

Meanwhile, the Daily Star claimed former manager David Pleat recommended they should sign the 21-year-old, who is valued at around £15 million by Hull. 

But Tottenham’s interest in Lewis-Potter could be trumped by West Ham with 90min reporting the Hammers are leading contenders to complete a deal. 

Although the report does not name Spurs in the pursuit, the likes of Brighton, Bournemouth, Everton, Southampton and Wolves are all thought to be behind the London club in the running. 

It is added that manager David Moyes has identified Lewis-Potter, who was recently the subject of bids from Brentford and Watford, as a player to flesh out his attacking options ahead of next season. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Lewis-Potter has a pretty big market available to him given how many clubs have been monitoring his situation this summer. 

He has some pretty good numbers for a team lower down the Championship table and he would be a useful addition to a side, especially considering he is a homegrown talent.
