Leeds United fans are excited over rumours that they want to sign Southampton striker Che Adams.

The Telegraph claim that Adams is on Leeds’ wishlist for January, as Marcelo Bielsa’s side seek a striker.

Leeds have been dealt a blow, as Eddie Nketiah has been recalled by Arsenal.

 

Leeds are now short of options up-front, as they only have minimal players to pick from who can play there.

But Leeds fans are hugely excited over rumours that Adams could come in, as they feel he could be a huge weapon.

Adams has struggled since moving to Southampton, but he has proven to be a major threat at Championship level before.

The rapid forward was a weapon for Birmingham City last season, when his speed and finishing caused defences across the division big issues.

The only issue is that Patrick Bamford seems to be Leeds’ first choice up-front, and Southampton would surely not let Adams go without guarantees that he was going to play regularly.
