Everton, Leeds United losing race to sign Che Adams

Everton and Leeds United are losing the race to sign 27-year-old Southampton striker Che Adams, who will join Wolverhampton Wanderers this summer.

According to a report by TEAMtalk, Everton and Leeds United are interested in signing Che Adams in the summer transfer window. However, Wolverhampton Wanderers are winning the race to sign the 27-year-old striker, who will leave Southampton as a free agent on July 1.

Che Adams and his Southampton journey

Che Adams has endured a topsy-turvy ride since joining Southampton from Birmingham City in July 2019. The striker is a native of Leicester and spent his formative years in the Midlands. However, he has chosen to represent Scotland on the international stage after turning out for England on the age-group level.

The Scottish international has blown hot and cold throughout his stint with Southampton. However, the 27-year-old has enjoyed a solid 2023/24 campaign, contributing to 23 goals in 45 appearances across all competitions. Adams has found the back of the net 17 times while providing six assists.

Where next?

However, Adams will become a free agent in the summer transfer window, with his contract with Southampton expiring on July 1. And his next destination will be Wolverhampton Wanderers, with the Black Country outfit successfully turning his head. The development has come as a blow for his other suitors, Everton and Leeds United.

Everton attempted to sign Che Adams from Southampton last summer before a move failed to materialise. However, the continued interest is perplexing, with Sean Dyche having three strikers in his squad. With Dominic Calvert-Lewin gradually regaining his form, Everton should focus on bolstering other positions.

As for Leeds United, Adams could have been a Premier League-proven addition to the first-team squad. With Patrick Bamford not at his best and Joel Piroe blowing hot and cold, the 27-year-old was a viable target for the Whites. However, he will join Wolverhampton Wanderers in a Bosman move in the summer transfer window.

The Scottish international zeroed in on Molineux as his next destination, as his family resides in the Midlands region. In addition, he can be a regular feature for a stable Premier League club. So, Everton and Leeds United need to look elsewhere for a striker heading into the summer transfer window.
