Southampton are keeping tabs on Hull City youngster Keane Lewis-Potter, according to reports.

Lewis-Potter has been one of the Tigers’ most impressive performers over the last year and it seems he’s attracting Premier League interest.

The Sun are reporting the forward has caught the eye of Southampton, with the Saints sending scouts to watch the 20-year-old in action for Grant McCann’s side and they’ll continue to do so for the rest of the year.

Lewis-Potter only signed a new deal at the MKM Stadium in January, with the club making an effort to tie him down under the summer of 2023.

However, should an approach be made from the top flight in January, the City hierarchy would have a decision to make about whether to sell or stand firm as they battle at the foot of the Championship table.

The youngster emerged from the academy into the first-team ranks in East Yorkshire in 2019, but his true breakthrough season came last season in League One as he quickly built up a reputations of being one of the most dangerous players outside the top two tiers of the English pyramid.

He scored 15 goals in all competitions under McCann last season to help his hometown club back into the Championship.

His good form has continued this campaign, too, bagging against Preston North End on the opening day, in Saturday’s loss to Sheffield United and against Wigan Athletic in the Carabao Cup.

City have struggled to find the net this year so far, but Lewis-Potter has been a threat throughout and it seems his performances haven’t gone unnoticed.
