Report: Agents suggest Southampton man could join Leeds this month

Southampton striker Che Adams’ agent has hinted that he could be on his way to join Championship club Leeds United in the January transfer window, according to Football Insider.

The 23-year-old is highly-rated in the football community but has not been able to cement his spot in the Saints staring XI in the ongoing campaign.

This has largely been down to the impressive run of form of Southampton striker Danny Ings, who is amongst the most in-form forwards currently playing in the England’s top-division.

The report suggests Leeds are keen on Adams to be the replacement for Eddie Nketiah, who was recalled by Arsenal in the mid-season.

Recently, Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl insisted during a press conference that he has no intension of letting Adams leave in the January transfer window and also started him in the FA Cup 2-0 triumph against Huddersfield.

However, the player’s agent has hinted that a move to Leeds is still very-much on the cards before the January 31st deadline, according to the report.

Adams has joined Southampton in the summer transfer window for a reported transfer fee of £15 million from Birmingham City.

The report also stated that Leeds might turn their attention to Newcastle United’s out-of-favour striker Dwight Gayle if they will not be able to secure a move for Adams.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men are top of the Championship table but need attacking reinforcements to get up to the Premier League after Nketiah left Elland Road.

Leeds have Patrick Bamford as their number nine but could use a back-up option to take pressure off the former Chelsea man.
