The player’s eye-catching performances for Championship side Hull last season sparked interest from many top clubs with Brentford making a move for him in January only for a bid to be rejected.
However, it looks like he will leave this summer, and if a club matches the Tigers’ asking price of £20m then it’s likely they will accept.
If he did move then he would be a welcome addition at Molineux, further adding to the crop of exciting young talent at the club. He’s a player that would certainly suit Bruno Lage, so Wolves should do everything than can to sign him.
He was directly involved in 16 goals in the league last season and was the top scorer for the East Yorkshire outfit, given this it’s no surprise that they are commanding a high fee to secure him.
Lewis-Potter’s former manager Grant McCann has dubbed him a “special talent”, and with him recently making his debut for the England U21 side he’s definitely one to keep an eye on.
Hull have a record of producing top talents, most recently Jarrod Bowen secured a Premier League move to West Ham and has since gone on to become one of their best players.
If Lewis-Potter can replicate the success he has had then it would be well worth the investment required.
The Wanderers are also in need of attacking reinforcements or they could find themselves in trouble next season. They scored just 38 goals in the league last season, with their top scorer Raul Jimenez only netting six.
Signing Lewis-Potter would help increase that tally and he will only improve the older and more experienced that he gets.
Lage needs to make attacking signings, and although some might say this one would be a risk, it’s worth taking and would see Wolves gain an advantage over their rivals.
