Leeds United could make a move for Southampton striker Che Adams this week, according to CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs.
The Scotsman, now into the final two years of his deal at St Mary’s, played the full 90 minutes against the Whites in Saturday’s 2-2 draw.
Leeds may face competition if they do make a move, with The Athletic reporting that Everton are exploring a loan-to-buy deal.
Jacobs writes that ‘Leeds expect a busy week in the transfer market’, with a move for Adams seen as ‘a possibility’.
He’s ‘one of many forwards Leeds are considering’ as they seek to bolster their striker ranks.
Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl ‘doesn’t want to lose him’ but, significantly, the club’s board are ‘open to offers’.
Would Jesse Marsch have liked what he saw on Saturday?
Well it was actually a fairly quiet afternoon for Adams in some respects, with journalist Jacob Tanswell noting that he was ‘starved from any meaningful service‘ in the first half.
Indeed, he only completed seven passes, and his solitary shot missed the target (via SofaScore).
On the other hand, though, the 26-year-old was able to draw two fouls, win four out of six ground duels, make two tackles and create a chance.
And Saints reporter Benjy Nurick also hailed his ‘terrific‘ contribution in the build-up to their equaliser.
Adams, who’s scored 20 goals and provided 11 assists in his top-flight career, could offer a strong all-round contribution for Marsch – especially going by Rangers legend Ally McCoist’s praise for the player.
Indeed, the Scotsman called him ‘clever’ and even a ‘breath of fresh air’.
