According to The Times, Birmingham City have slapped a huge £22million asking price on striker Che Adams amid interest from Premier League clubs.

Adams, 22, has always shown flashes of his quality for Birmingham, but after 16 goals in the last two seasons combined, it's all come together for Adams this term.

 

Adams has smashed 19 goals in 31 Championship outings this season, including a hat-trick against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday afternoon.

A former non-league striker with Ilkeston, Adams is now attracting major interest, but The Times claim Birmingham want a staggering £22million for his signature.

Burnley are alleged to have offered £12million for Adams, but Birmingham were demanding huge money for their star striker despite financial concerns.

It's also important to note that West Ham were keen on Adams and were willing to pay £10million on deadline day according to The Daily Star, whilst The Mirror claimed Southampton offered £8million.

No club could tempt Birmingham into a sale, and with his goals showing no signs of drying up, it would be little surprise to see the Blues hike up their demands by the end of the season again.
