Southampton are willing to sell Che Adams this summer following links of a move to Leeds United.
The Lowdown: Leeds linked with Adams
The Whites appear to have their eye on the Saints attacker once again, with Victor Orta still on the hunt for a new forward before the September 1 deadline.
Recent rumours have suggested that Leeds are lining up a ‘shock move’ for the Scotland international, with Phil Hay believing that Adams may come onto the radar late in the transfer window if moves for other Elland Road targets fall away.
Leeds have made a first move by officially registering their interest in the 26-year-old last week, with Nottingham Forest also keen on the player’s services.
The Latest: Adams transfer update
The Athletic’s Jacob Tanswell shared an in-depth Southampton story on Monday following their 4-1 defeat to Tottenham over the weekend.
The journalist provided a big update on Adams, who was an unused substitute in north London, claiming that the Saints are willing to offload the forward in the final weeks of the transfer window.
The Verdict: Time for Orta to swoop
The two teams face each other this weekend at St Mary’s, but ahead of that match, the coming days could be the perfect chance for Leeds to get things in place over a move for Adams following this development.
The Whites would reportedly like to do a deal at £10m, a figure which could represent some smart business.
Adams at Elland Road?
Yes, get him in!
No, look elsewhere!
Adams has plenty of Premier League experience and could be the perfect third centre-forward alongside Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt at Elland Road.
You’d like to think that the Scotland striker would get his fair share of game-time in Jesse Marsch’s narrow formation and wouldn’t hinder Gelhardt’s emergence in Yorkshire, so this could be one to monitor over the coming days or weeks.
