Wolves transfer news: Brentford take lead in Lewis-Potter hunt

Brentford are in pole position to land Keane Lewis-Potter, who has been linked with a move to Wolves.

The Bees are apparently leading the charge for the talented Hull City winger.

According to The Sun, they have lodged a £16 million bid for the 21-year-old, having tracked him for around 18 months.

There is hope that they can now seal a deal very soon.

Brentford officials are hoping for a response this week.

The Sun mention that Wolves are one of a few other clubs to have been linked with Lewis-Potter, who really shone last season in the Championship.

He scored 12 goals in the second-tier in 2021/22, and he has established himself as one of the best prospects in the division.

Hull are willing to let him go this summer for the right price.

It remains to be seen how they will respond to Brentford’s offer, but it puts pressure on other teams to come forward with bids of their own if they are keen.

So far this summer, Wolves have been very shy on that front.

The club are yet to make any additions, and reports have mainly been about Wanderers showing interest in players rather than actually tabling bids so far.

It gives some credibility to the suggestions the club are waiting to sell Ruben Neves and others first.

Lewis-Potter is absolutely a player Wolves would be looking at.

He’s young and has potential to become a top player, with major resale value.

West Ham United stuck gold with Jarrod Bowen a couple of years ago, and the feeling is that Lewis-Potter is another fantastic talent emerging at the MKM Stadium.

It looks as though Brentford recognise this and are very keen to bring a move to fruition.

If Wolves have genuine interest, they will have to act quickly.
