Report: West Ham currently looking likely to beat Everton and sign 'special' player who Lampard really wants

West Ham United lead the race to sign Keane Lewis-Potter from Championship outfit Hull City ahead of a host of Premier League clubs.

90Min report that the Hammers are the frontrunners for the Englishman, who could potentially tread the same path as Jarrod Bowen.

Bowen swapped Hull for West Ham in January 2020, and has since taken the Premier League by storm and become a full England international.

Lewis-Potter may look at that as inspiration, and David Moyes apparently wants a new forward in the Bowen mould to add to his squad this summer.

West Ham lead Lewis-Potter race

Everton, of course managed by former Hammers midfielder Frank Lampard, are among the other top flight clubs keen on Lewis-Potter.

Lampard could be facing the prospect of losing Richarlison this summer and may well need a replacement before next season starts.

It would be sweet for some Irons fans to leave Lampard in their wake in this particular transfer chase, and West Ham can of course offer European football, unlike Everton.

Brighton, Bournemouth, Southampton, Wolves and Brentford have all shown interest, alongside recently relegated Watford.

Lewis-Potter has been described as a ‘special‘ talent and is now part of the England Under-21 setup, with a bright future ahead.

He seems like the kind of young, hungry, versatile player that Moyes wants to add to his ranks, and the signs are looking good.

But West Ham have struggled to add extra forwards to their ranks since Sebastien Haller’s departure, and it seems like there is still work to do on this deal.
