The pair are enjoying good seasons despite performing in a struggling side.

West Ham United are set to dip into England’s second tier again as they eye Hull duo Keane Lewis-Potter and Jacob Greaves.

The Hammers have never shied away from buying talent from the Championship, as they look to mount a serious top four charge in the Premier League.

It wouldn’t be their first dealings with the Tigers either, having prized star man Jarrod Bowen away from Hull for £18 million in January 2020.

After an initial slow start in the Premier League, Bowen is one of the Premier League’s shining stars, and this season has bagged eight goals and registering 8 assists in 27 games for West Ham, form that has led to the likes of Liverpool linked with the 25-year-old.

Lewis-Potter is enjoying a stellar championship season and only turned 21 on February 22.

His form in league one was a big reason why Hull got promoted to the championship, and it looks like his form will be the reason the Tigers stay up should they survive the drop.

A Hull native, Lewis-Potter has so far scored 8 goals and got 3 assists, including a brace against relegation rivals Peterborough.

He shares similar traits to Bowen, he isn’t blessed with blistering pace, but has the technical brilliance and eye for goal that the West Ham winger does.

The other potential incoming is Greaves, a modern day centre-back, assured with the ball at his feet.

At only 21, this would also be a signing for the future but could slot in right away, as he has been an ever-present for Hull this season, turning out 35 times.

Standing at exactly six foot tall, Greaves is the perfect height for a centre-back, and with his passing range, he is definitely one to watch for the future.

It’s currently unclear the fee Hull would command for the star player and main centre-back, but their importance to the team would suggest is may eclipse the Bowen fee paid just over two years ago.
