The Lowdown: Adams linked with Leeds
There could still be more to come, with Victor Orta and Leeds in the market for a new centre-forward over the coming weeks. The club have missed out on primary target Charles De Ketelaere, with rumours in recent days suggesting that a shock move for Adams is on the agenda.
The Latest: Crook’s comments
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Crook said he has been told that Leeds still want a new forward and that a move for Adams could be ‘one to keep an eye on’, with Southampton potentially open to offers.
“I was told they want to bring in a centre forward and I’ve been told that Southampton could be willing to listen to offers for Che Adams, who’s been on their list before.
“Whether they would meet the asking price I don’t know, but maybe that’s one to keep an eye on.”
The Verdict: Last resort?
Phil Hay believes that a move for Adams could materialise late in the transfer window if Leeds fail to land alternative options, name-checking Paris Saint-Germain’s Arnaud Kalimuendo and Rennes’ Martin Terrier.
He may well be lower on the list and not an eye-catching name to Leeds supporters, however, he could still be a shrewd signing to challenge the likes of Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt, as you could argue that he is in the prime of his career at the age of 26.
Adams at Elland Road?
Yes, get him in!
No, look elsewhere!
Adams, who has been dubbed ‘amazing’ by reporter Alan Biggs in the past, has scored three times against Leeds in previous meetings and has contributed to 31 Premier League goals in 96 appearances, so bringing him to Yorkshire may be a solid piece of prospective business from the Whites.
