Southampton striker Che Adams is in talks with Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers ahead of a possible loan switch before Friday’s deadline, according to journalist John Percy.
The 27-year-old saw a move to Everton fall through earlier this month, but it appears as though he could be in line to make a loan departure from St. Mary’s before Friday’s 11 p.m. deadline.
Who is Che Adams?
The Scottish international burst onto the scene with Sheffield United in 2014, battling to become a first-team star, before leaving to join Birmingham City. At St. Andrews Adams became a star, scoring 38 goals in 128 appearances before a big-money switch to Southampton.
So far this season, Adams has three goals in three games as the club aims to make an immediate return to the Premier League. He has also made his international debut, earning 23 caps and scoring six goals.
A strong start
Despite the club’s relegation last season, Russell Martin’s side have had an excellent start to the 2023/24 Championship season, picking up ten points from their opening four league games, with their only draw coming in a 4-4 game against Norwich City.
The Saints have beaten Sheffield Wednesday, Plymouth Argyle and QPR so far this season and currently sit fourth in the division, ahead of Saturday’s home match against Sunderland.
What’s been said?
According to John Percy, a move to Everton fell through because of an issue with the payment structure. However, Wolves are desperate to land Adams before the window closes and are willing to sign him on loan if it can speed the deal up.
Che Adams has proven that he is ‘too good’ for the Championship and is exactly the type of player that Wolves need in order to try and stay in the Premier League.
It would be a major blow to Southampton, but the form of Adam Armstrong is likely to soften the blow if Adams does depart tomorrow.
