Southampton have emerged as an interested party in Hull City starlet Keane Lewis-Potter, as per a report from The Sun.
The 20-year-old, who primarily operates on the left-wing, has scored two league goals and has grabbed an assist in his first eight Championship matches this season.
The young winger also found the back of the net in a Cup clash against Wigan Athletic earlier in the season.
Lewis-Potter has previously stated that he models his game around Wayne Rooney, with the youngster’s versatility allowing him to be as much of a threat in a striking position, as he is on the wings, or in a number 10 role.
Are these 22 Hull City stats real or fake?
Chipping in with 13 goals and six assists, the 20-year-old became an integral part of the Hull team that won promotion to the second-tier last time out.
Lewis-Potter also made 21 Championship appearances the season prior, during a campaign that ultimately ended in relegation for Grant McCann’s side.

Graduating from the club’s academy system, the young attacker made his Hull debut against West Brom in November 2019.
Lewis-Potter penned down a new contract with The Tigers in January, extending his stay at the MKM Stadium until 2023.

It would be a poor move. He would disappear into their U23 side or at best get farmed out on loan after a bit. May as well learn while playing at City for now. Worked for Bowen.

What I’ve seen of him this season, he’s way off the standard required for the Premiership. He certainly needs to up his work ethic and to be fair, maybe Grant should play him as a striker?

Fine by me, let him sky shots for them instead. Gives us chance to bring someone in who might actually be able to hit the target
