West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing talented Hull City duo Keane Lewis-Potter and Jacob Greaves in the summer transfer window.
According to 90min, West Ham United are plotting a summer swoop for Hull City starlets Keane Lewis-Potter and Jacob Greaves, who are also targets for London rivals Brentford.
Lewis-Potter is a product of the Hull City academy and has grown into a pivotal first-team member for the Tigers since 2019, following a short loan stint with Bradford. The 21-year-old has already racked up 110 appearances for the Championship outfit, scoring 24 goals and setting up 12 more.
A versatile forward who can play on either flank or through the middle, Lewis-Potter is having a decent season, producing a return of seven goals and four assists in 37 matches in 2021/22.
As for Greaves, like Lewis-Potter, he too came through the ranks at Hull City and after a loan spell away at Cheltenham Town in 2019/20, he has become a regular in the senior team. A centre-back by trade, the 21-year-old has notched up 77 appearances for Hull so far, with 36 of those coming in the ongoing campaign.
While Hull have not had the best of seasons in the Championship, both Lewis-Potter and Greaves have emerged with a lot of credit for their performances and are attracting interest from clubs in the Premier League in the form of West Ham United and Brentford.
West Ham’s interest in Keane Lewis-Potter is not new. The Hammers had been linked with a January move for the 21-year-old Englishman and it seems like they have continued to keep tabs on his progress.
With Andriy Yarmolenko expected to depart at the end of the season and given their over-reliance on Jarrod Bowen, it would make sense for David Moyes to add another young, dynamic forward like Lewis-Potter to the ranks.
As for the interest in Greaves, the east Londoners need to add some fresh blood in defence as Angelo Ogbonna is well into his thirties and will see his contract expire at the end of the season. Craig Dawson has performed well alongside Kurt Zouma, but the former will be turning 32 in a few months.
Securing the signing of a new, promising defender like Jacob Greaves would be a logical step for West Ham, especially given their European prospects, which will need them to have adequate depth in the roster. But with Brentford also in the picture, it remains to be seen whether the Hammers can get the Hull City duo in the summer of whether they look at other targets such as Cameron Carter-Vickers.
