Report: Keane Lewis-Potter set to join Brentford, after recent Wolves links

Wolves were recently linked with a move for Keane Lewis-Potter, but the winger is bound for Brentford.

According to the Daily Mail, the Hull City starlet is leaving the Tigers’ pre-season tour of Turkey to finalise his move.

Supposedly, the proposed transfer will set the Bees back £20 million in total.

He has been on their radar for the past year or so, and Thomas Frank appears to be close to getting his man.

The talented England U21 international is apparently set to sign a six-year deal. He will also significantly improve his salary.

It is stated in the report that a number of top-flight clubs had been taking an interest in Lewis-Potter.

That line follows claims last month that Wolves were one such club.

Lewis-Potter was Hull’s top scorer last season, hitting 13 goals in 48 appearances.

He established himself as one of the Championship’s hottest prospects, and he has a very bright future ahead of him.

It appears Brentford have won the race for him, and it will be interest to see how he gets on with the Bees.

For Wolves fans, the wait goes on for a new signing this summer.

Potentially the need for a new winger has just increased, with Chiquinho picking up an ACL injury on Saturday against Burnley in pre-season.

Frustration for Wolves as Brentford close in on £20 million Lewis-Potter deal

It is frustrating to see a club like Brentford splashing £20 million on Lewis-Potter while Wolves remain inactive.

No one really knows the true nature of the financial situation at Molineux, but we have been led to believe that the club need to sell players in order to bring in new faces.

Some supporters or now starting to fret, with pre-season underway.

Bruno Lage wanted new faces in at this point and that hasn’t happened.

Potentially, Wolves could be in for a very tough start to 2022/23, which could result in a very tough season
