Manchester United are interested in making a move for Leeds United midfielder Tyler Adams, according to a new transfer rumour that has emerged.
The Lowdown: Adams impressing at Leeds
The American made the move to Elland Road during the summer transfer window, joining from RB Leipzig after three years in Germany.
It could be that Leeds have to battle to keep hold of Adams no sooner after he has arrived, however, following a new update.
The Latest: United keen on signing
According to Football Insider, United are ‘keeping close tabs’ on the 23-year-old currently, as they weight up whether or not to make a move for him.
It is stated that they have a ‘long-time interest’ in Adams and he is considered a player who could come in and bolster their midfield options.
The Verdict: Could be a strong option
Adams has the potential to be an excellent signing by United, possessing the kind of technical quality and energy that Erik ten Hag wants in his midfielders.
The 19-time capped USA international has averaged a hugely impressive 4.1 tackles per game in the league this season – no Leeds player to have started one game or more has a better average – and his ability to break up play can be priceless. Journalist Tim Thornton thinks he has ‘done brilliantly’ in 2022/23 to date.
Adams would arguably prove to be an upgrade and more of a long-term prospect than the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay, both of whom are seen their limitations exposed this season.
