Southampton’s Che Adams ‘seriously considering Leeds United transfer’

Southampton striker Che Adams would reportedly ‘seriously consider’ a transfer to Leeds United should they table an offer for his services in January.

The 26-year-old has established himself as the first-choice number nine at St Mary’s this season and has impressed in front of goal, netting eight times in 18 games across all competitions.

In total, Adams has recorded 29 goals and 13 assists in 128 appearances for Southampton since joining the club from Birmingham City in 2019, and his performances are understood to have attracted interest from Leeds.

Indeed, the West Yorkshire outfit have been keeping tabs on Adams for some time and they allegedly failed with a £20m bid in January 2020.

Leeds were then joined by Everton in the race for his signature over the summer, but a transfer ultimately failed to materialise.

According to journalist Pete O’Rourke, Adams will contemplate a winter-window exit from Southampton if he receives a lucrative contract offer from elsewhere.

 

The Scotland international has just 18 months remaining on his current deal at St Mary’s and there are no indications to suggest that he is close to agreeing fresh terms with the Saints.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, O’Rourke said: “Obviously nobody wants to be involved in a relegation fight, and I’m sure if an offer did come in it’s something that Che Adams would seriously consider.

“Again, if he did move clubs he’d probably be on a more lucrative contract as well, so that will come into his thinking.”

It remains to be seen whether Southampton would be willing to part ways with their star striker and top scorer midway through the season, with Nathan Jones‘s side currently sitting at the foot of the Premier League table.
