Leeds United could land Che Adams in January

Leeds United could be set to strengthen their squad at Elland Road during the January transfer window and now a reliable source has given an update on the club’s opportunity to sign a potential target this month.

What’s the latest?

According to journalist Pete O’Rourke, Southampton striker Che Adams would be open to a move to Leeds if they were to pursue their interest in the player.

O’Rourke told GIVEMESPORT: “Obviously nobody wants to be involved in a relegation fight, and I’m sure if an offer did come in it’s something that Che Adams would seriously consider.

“Again, if he did move clubs he’d probably be on a more lucrative contract as well, so that will come into his thinking.”

A crucial signing

If Jesse Marsch is serious about strengthening his forward line at Elland Road ahead of the second half of the season, Adams could be a big coup for Victor Orta when acquiring the services of a player who can make a difference in the team.

The Whites are currently 14th in the Premier League table after picking up an important point from their clash with Newcastle United which has put them three points clear of the relegation zone, however, there is still a long way to go with 22 league fixtures left to be played in 2023.

Patrick Bamford has suffered numerous injury problems over the last 18 months and with Joe Geldhart clearly not trusted yet to be a starting player for Marsch, it has left Rodrigo occupying the centre-forward role out of his strongest position.

As a result, the signing of Adams could give the Leeds boss some crucial depth as they endeavour to avoid another relegation battle and earn a more comfortable position in the Premier League over the second half of the season.

Should Leeds sign Che Adams?

Yes

No

No

Over 16 appearances so far this season, the £15m Saints signing – who was hailed “clever” by Ally McCoist – has scored four goals, registered one assist and successfully completed 50% dribbles, as well as averaging 1.1 key passes, 2.1 shots on goal, one clearance and 4.6 duels won per game.

With that being said, it will be interesting to see if the powers at Elland Road sanction a move for a forward over the transfer window or whether they will expect Marsch to rely on the fitness of Bamford and Rodrigo’s form in front of goal. Either way, a new centre-forward is simply a crucial signing.
