Southampton Star Sees Premier League Interest Reignited

Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers have reignited their interest in Southampton attacker Che Adams as his contract expires at the end of the current campaign, according to the latest reports.

Adams is currently away on international duty with Scotland as Steve Clarke’s men prepare for Euro 2024 which takes place this summer. The versatile forward featured twice for his country in defeats over The Netherlands and Northern Ireland this past week, coming off the bench on both occasions.

The 27-year-old has had a solid campaign at the St. Mary’s Stadium, scoring 12 times and recording five assists in 35 matches for Southampton as the Saints are locked in an intense battle for automatic promotion, currently sitting fourth in the Championship, eight points behind second place but with two games in hand. However, his future is up in the air.

The frontman’s deal ends at Southampton in the summer and there has been no indication thus far that the player is willing to stay on the south coast next season, leading to speculation about his future and interest from the top-flight.

Rumours were rife during the previous summer market that Everton were hoping to sign Adams as Sean Dyche was keen to strengthen his frontline. Unfortunately, the two clubs couldn’t reach an agreement over the player’s transfer fee.

But other clubs were in the race, including Wolves. According to a report from The Telegraph, the Midlands outfit have reignited their interest in the Scotland international and will look to bring the ex-Birmingham City star to Molineux at the end of the campaign on a free transfer, claiming that Gary O’Neil has personally identified Adams as a top target.

Writer’s View

Adams currently has a market value of just under £13 million, as per Transfermarkt, and so Southampton could be set to miss out on a transfer sum possibly worth eight figures if the attacker leaves for nothing during the summer.

The Saints should try everything possible to tie Adams down to a new contract even if they decide to move him on during the transfer window as at least the club will be getting a fee for him, having signed the player for a reported £15 million back in 2019.
