West Ham United must react to latest Keane Lewis-Potter news

Leeds United are keeping tabs on West Ham United target Keane Lewis-Potter and this news has to kickstart the Hammers into making a move for the Hull City man.

INews reported on Wednesday 22 June that the 21-year-old is being watched by Jesse Marsch’s side.

ExWHUemployee suggested on the West Ham Way podcast Patreon on Tuesday 7 June, that the Irons could’ve been one of the clubs bidding for the attacking midfielder.

Lewis-Potter mustered 12 goals and four assists for Hull in their 2021/22 Championship campaign.

David Moyes cannot let a player of Lewis-Potter’s experience and age go to one of the Hammers’ Premier League rivals.

It is a surprise that the West Ham boss hasn’t already moved for the Hull man after the success of Jarrod Bowen making the trip from Humberside to the London Stadium.

Moyes has had lots of success picking gems from lower leagues and a move for Lewis-Potter should be no different.

Leeds are acting extremely fast in the transfer market and that should be a concern for the Hammers if they don’t want to miss out on the 21-year-old.

Marsch and Victor Orta have been working effectively so far in the market, with potential signings turning into permanent additions in very quick time.

If the Hammers aren’t careful, another one of their long-term targets will slip through their fingers.

With potential departures imminent, a move for the youngster makes a lot of sense and Moyes would be foolish to let their Premier League rivals take control of the deal.
