BRENTFORD is leading the race to sign Hull City ace Keane Lewis-Potter and has made a new £16million bid.
The Bees have been following the 21-year-old forward for around 18 months and were rejected by the Championship Club in January.
However, manager Thomas Frank has once again pushed for the England Under-21 international to be signed.
There is hope that an agreement can be reached in the near future.
The west Londoners have submitted a new £16million bid which includes more add-ons to beat Premier League rivals in Lewis-Potter’s signing.
Brentford bosses are hoping for an answer this week.
Everton and Wolves were linked while West Ham considered a move but didn’t go further.
The winger, who scored 12 goals in the league last season, has one year left on his current contract with the Tigers, who are ready to see him make the dream move to the Premier League at the right price.
The Bees are still awaiting a decision from Christian Eriksen on whether he wants to stay at Brentford Community Stadium for next season.
Eriksen shone on loan after returning to football after suffering a heart attack with Frank’s side but is a target for a number of Premier League clubs including Manchester United.
