Leeds United could have a clear path to secure a summer transfer deal for reported target Tyler Adams from RB Leipzig.
What’s the latest?
Speaking on a recent edition of the Que Golazo Podcast (via TEAMtalk) journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano had this to say about the current situation regarding Adams and his immediate future.
He said: “My feeling is yes, he is going to leave the club this summer.
“At the moment there is still nothing agreed with any club, but many clubs are exploring this possibility, including Leeds, but at the moment still nothing agreed.
“For Tyler Adams, he’s a name they have of course in Leeds with Jesse Marsch. It’s normal to consider him as an interesting opportunity for the midfield.
“At the moment it’s still not advanced, but to answer your question I do see Tyler Adams leaving the club this summer.”
Now that Romano has suggested that the player will leave the German club this summer, this could be a big boost for the Whites, handing them a green light to launch a move to sign him.
Marsch will be buzzing
After starting his career in America with the New York Red Bulls, the midfielder joined Leipzig back in the 2019 January transfer window.
Since then, the 23-year-old has made 102 appearances for the Bundesliga side across all competitions, chipping in with two goals and four assists along the way.
A few months ago, Adams was mentioned with a £34m move to fellow Premier League club Arsenal, showing that he has caught the eye of other top sides in England’s top division.
Having been described as being a “massive” player for Leipzig by Jesse Marsch when he was in charge of the club, it would surely have the current Leeds boss elated if he’s able to be reunited with his fellow American at Elland Road this summer.
Marsch also labelled the midfielder as a “special talent,” which could make it a very exciting prospect for the Leeds fans to potentially see him at the Yorkshire club and showing off his talent in the Premier League.
