Bid tabled for Moyes target – report

Brentford have tabled a £20m bid for Hull City winger Keane Lewis-Potter, according to The Athletic.

David Moyes is a big fan of the player and we have confirmed there is interest at the London Stadium in signing the 21-year-old.

Spurs have also had a look at Lewis-Potter but it appears that Brentford could now have the jump on the two London clubs.

They are reported to have offered Hull a package worth £20m for Lewis-Potter, with the club identifying him as a prime target for the summer window.

The initial fee would be £16m and it could rise to £20m with add-ons; it would make him Brentford’s record signing after paying £13m for Krisoffer Ajer last summer.

They have been buoyed by securing survival in the Premier League; Thomas Frank’s side finished 13th, a comfortable 11 points clear of the relegation zone.

It remains to be seen if the Hammers will make an attempt to rival Brentford for Lewis-Potter.

  1. Yes that’s straight forward, identify your target and step in with a firm and realistic offer. Brentford obviously want him – do we?

  2. Will be very disappointing if we don’t at least bid for this kid, looks like a Bowen type character that has the potential to develop into a top pl player.

  3. No wonder moyes gets his name as dithering dave . Really should leave the transfers to Newman to get in and let moyes just coach them . Brentford straight away in with 20 mill while moyes like many of his so called transfers waits and wonders why we are so slow or is it the board ? Alls you see with us is west ham moyes is considering making a bid or thinking of putting in a bid . So for me the problem is letting this well known stubborn person over the years just coach only .

  4. Why would he even consider a move to us when Moyes is hell bent on trying to bring the mercenary that is Jessie Lingard to the London Stadium ahead of a young talent like Lewis Potter

  5. Maybe Moyes hasnt got the slightest interest in potter. Maybe he doesn’t think the kid will make the step up to premier league level. Maybe Moyes isn’t interested in lingard anymore. Who knows the truth of it?

  6. Adding to the earlier comment, we are bidding for loads of players (allegedly) that don’t have any desire to play for us, if we bid for this kid it’s almost a slam dunk, he has seen what Bowen has done and will most likely see us as a great next step in his career, the fans will take to him because of his style and at the same point be realistic that it will take him a while to adapt to the PL so he can grow in a safe environment, if he does hit the ground running it will be a bonus, stop dithering Dave and make a purchase, you remind me of those dodderers in the supermarket where all the orders have gone through the checkout and then when they are asked to pay, start fumbling around for their purse or wallet like it’s the biggest surprise in the world….

  7. Frankly, I don’t believe in these transfer stories that originate from tabloid newspapers. Or from those that EXWestHamUnitedEmployee claims to know about. For instance, West Ham have been ‘very close to signing Danjuma’ for more than a week. But that turns out to be very far from the truth.
