Bees set to seal signings of Lewis-Potter and Strakosha

Brentford are set to complete the signings of Hull City forward Keane Lewis-Potter and former Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha.

Lewis-Potter (pictured) has left Hull’s pre-season training camp to undergo a medical with Brentford ahead of a club-record transfer to west London.

It will be the second time this transfer window that the club have broken their transfer record, following the signing of Aaron Hickey from Bologna on Saturday.

The 21-year-old is a long-term target of the Bees and scored 13 goals in all competitions for the Championship side last season while also assisting four times.

Goalkeeper Strakosha is also undergoing a medical at the club after leaving Lazio this summer and had previously been linked with a move to west London rivals Fulham, as well as Manchester United.

Brentford have been trying to tie down current first-choice goalkeeper David Raya to a longer-term deal but are yet to agree terms.

His current contract expires in 2024.
