Report: Everton make enquiry for Hull forward Keane Lewis-Potter

Everton have made an enquiry about signing Hull City starlet Keane Lewis-Potter as Frank Lampard looks to ensure that the Toffees are not in the same trouble next season, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

Everton just about kept themselves in the Premier League last year. But there were certainly times when much of the fanbase seemed resigned to relegation.

The problem the Toffees now face is that they may be working with a tight budget once again unless they move players on.

Perhaps wisely therefore, they are looking to the Championship for targets. And one of the players on their radar is Lewis-Potter.

In fact, the Daily Mail reports that Everton have now made an enquiry for Lewis-Potter.

The Mail notes that West Ham also want the 21-year-old. Meanwhile, reports claimed that Leeds are monitoring the forward. And Tottenham have also been linked with the youngster.

Everton make Lewis-Potter enquiry

Lewis-Potter has been a revelation since breaking into the Tigers’ first-team. He scored 12 times in the Championship last year.

He has previously been described as a ‘special‘ player. And he can play in a number of roles, with most of his success last season coming out wide on the left or in a central attacking midfielder role.

Previous reports have suggested that Hull value Lewis-Potter at £15 million. So there is certainly the potential for a real bargain if one of his Premier League admirers can secure his signature.

If Everton do need to be clever in the market this summer, he is absolutely a player they must seriously push to sign. He would not cost a lot and he appears to boast serious potential.

It is a potential risk to spend £15 million on him at this stage when Everton’s status was so precarious last year. But it could prove to be an inspired move.
