Wolves transfer news: Wolves face missing out on Lewis-Potter as West Ham lead race

Wolves face missing out on Hull City talent Keane Lewis-Potter, with West Ham United the frontrunners for the winger.

According to 90min, the Hammers are currently in pole position to snap up the youngster, who is one of the Championship’s brightest prospects.

Interest in the 21-year-old is very high.

Lewis-Potter enjoyed a really productive season in 2021/22, scoring 13 goals in 47 appearances.

A number of clubs have placed him on their radars ahead of summer, with some even already tabling bids.

Brentford and Watford have both seen offers knocked back.

Wolves are said to have been showing interest in the player, but it’s West Ham who are currently leading the charge.

The Irons’ interest in the player is said to be long-standing, and they are set to pursue a deal for the exciting starlet, who won Hull’s Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year and Supporters Player of the Year for 2021/22.

West Ham will be feeling confident of bringing Lewis-Potter – described recently by Hull owner Acun Ilicali as having ‘extreme potential’ – into the club.

They did business with Hull a couple of years ago with the signing of Jarrod Bowen, who was been a revelation.

The Hammers also signed Said Benrahma from Brentford when the Bees were in the Championship.

Wolves really have their work cut out if their interest in Lewis-Potter is to develop into anything more.

Wolves will likely be needing to sign a new wide forward this summer.

Adama Traore will probably be sold due to his contract expiring next summer. And the club are thought not to be keen to sign Francisco Trincao permanently.

Wolves love to sign young players with high potential and resale value, and Lewis-Potter would certainly fit the bill.

West Ham doing business with Hull before over Bowen probably puts them in a good position to sign the 21-year-old.

One gets the feeling it would take a massive effort from Wolves if they are to land him at this point.
