Report: Tottenham want Keane Lewis-Potter after Pleat recommendation

Tottenham want Keane Lewis-Potter, with the Daily Star reporting that Spurs have entered the battle to sign the Hull City starlet upon the recommendation of David Pleat.

Lewis-Potter may become the latest EFL prospect handed the chance to show what he can do in the Premier League this summer. He scored 12 goals in the Championship as the Tigers stayed up.

The Daily Star reports that Hull value the 21-year-old at £15 million. So it is probably no surprise that a raft of sides want the forward.

Previous reports claimed that West Ham were set to open talks to sign him. And the Daily Star is now reporting that David Moyes sees Lewis-Potter emulating Jarrod Bowen at the London Stadium.

But there is competition from elsewhere. The Daily Star reports that Leicester have wanted the youngster for some time. Meanwhile, Tottenham have entered the running.

It is noted that Spurs’ interest was sparked by a recommendation from Pleat. He, of course, was the man to convince Tottenham to sign Dele Alli from MK Dons previously.

Tottenham have had mixed success signing players from the EFL in recent years. Dele was a revelation for several years before his Spurs career went downhill.

Ryan Sessegnon meanwhile, is finally appearing to find his feet at the very highest level. But it has been a long journey for the former Fulham man.

Meanwhile, Jack Clarke looks to face a massive task trying to make a career for himself in North London. So some supporters may have reservations about a move for Lewis-Potter.

However, he has been described as a ‘special‘ talent. And if Antonio Conte feels that he can make the step up, few Tottenham fans are going to have any complaints.
