In a recent report, Hull Daily Mail mentioned that Everton are set to rival Wolverhampton Wanderers for Hull City youngster Keane Lewis-Potter. It has been claimed that the Toffees are eyeing a move to bring the English winger to Merseyside this summer.
Lewis-Potter’s Impressive Form In The EFL Championship
Lewis-Potter was a standout performer at the MKM Stadium last season when he put in a few eye-catching displays on the left side of Hull’s frontline. The 21-year-old has banged in 13 goals and earned four assists in 47 matches for his current employers in the previous campaign in multiple competitions.
The Hull-born talent was a reliable performer in the final third as he averaged 1.1 clearances, 2.2 shots, 1.1 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per 90 minutes in the EFL Championship. He has even been accurate when interchanging possession with his teammates in the opponent’s half based on his pass completion rate of 78% in the second tier of English football (stats via whoscored).
Everton Showing Interest In Lewis-Potter: Is He A Prospect For The Future?
Lewis-Potter is a quick and agile wide player who can complete some dangerous dribbles out on the wide areas. He has got a good work rate and doesn’t mind tracking back to defend when his teammates need him on the defensive end of the field.
The English whizkid has contributed by scoring and creating his fair share of goals in the attacking end of the field. The next step for him will be to find some consistency with his offensive numbers in the coming seasons.
At 21, the future looks promising for Lewis-Potter as long as he continues to take strides towards improving himself with each year. Everton boss Frank Lampard could unlock the best out of the young winger if he can find a way to win the race for his services ahead of the new campaign.
Lewis-Potter will undeniably increase competition for places within the Toffees‘ squad and could help the Merseyside outfit fight for a top-eight finish in the Premier League. The Hull City wing wizard is definitely a prospect to watch out for in the future, so Lampard would do well to recruit him this summer.
