The Lowdown: Great signing by Leeds
The 23-year-old traded RB Leipzig for the Whites during the summer, in what felt like an exciting piece of business by Victor Orta and Jesse Marsch.
Adams certainly hasn’t disappointed in his first few months in a Leeds shirt, standing out as a key player along with Brenden Aaronson (both are ranked among the club’s top seven performers by WhoScored), while so many others at Elland Road have struggled.
The American’s current deal runs until 2027, but that hasn’t stopped an exit rumour from emerging already.
The Latest: Man Utd eye up Adams move
According to Football Insider, Man United are keeping a close eye on Adams at the moment, seeing him as a player who could make them more formidable in the middle of the park.
Erik ten Hag feels the need to bolster his midfield and the former Leipzig man is someone that the Manchester club have tracked since his days in Germany.
The report adds that the 23-year-old ‘is widely regarded to have been the best’ of the seven summer signings made by Leeds.
The Verdict: Must keep hold of him
The thought of Leeds losing Adams so early in his time at Elland Road doesn’t even bear thinking about, especially as he has been such a bright spark this season.
The midfielder has averaged 4.1 tackles and 1.3 interceptions per game in the league, placing him second and fifth respectively for those metrics among Marsch’s squad, while LUFCDATA have described him as ‘outstanding’ on Twitter.
Sky Sports reporter Tim Thornton has also voiced his admiration for the 23-year-old, who he says has “done brilliantly” during his first few months in Yorkshire.
On the plus side, Man United would surely have to bid huge money if they want to get Adams, considering his contract situation, but the hope is that the lure of Old Trafford isn’t too much for him to turn down, especially having only arrived in England in July.
