Chelsea Football Club is reportedly in the final stages of completing the signing of Tyler Adams from Leeds United.
The London club plans to take advantage of the midfielder’s relegation release clause at Elland Road, allowing them to acquire Adams for just £20 million. This opportunity arises as Leeds United was relegated to the Championship last season.
According to a report by Thesun.co.uk, Chelsea is planning to trigger the release clause, adding the American midfielder to their ranks. This move, however, will not impact their pursuit of Moises Caicedo from Brighton.
Chelsea has been actively pursuing Caicedo, the Ecuadorian international, but has faced multiple rejections for their bids. Nonetheless, they are expected to launch a fresh £90 million offer for the player.
Adams, who joined Leeds United just last summer, is said to be keen on a move before the transfer window closes. He prefers not to spend a season in the Championship and has garnered interest from various Premier League clubs. Aston Villa is believed to be among the sides interested in him, but Chelsea is currently the favorites to secure the 24-year-old’s signature.
Due to a hamstring injury, Adams has been sidelined since March but he made 26 appearances for Leeds last season. Chelsea sees Adams as a valuable addition to their midfield and is determined to reinforce their squad.
Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea’s manager, is still planning to pursue a deal for Moises Caicedo. This week, there have been positive developments as Brighton is closing in on signing a potential replacement. The club has reached an agreement with Ajax for the acquisition of Mohammed Kudus, which may open the door for Caicedo’s departure.
