Birmingham City could see themselves dealt a massive blow before the January window slams shut, with Premier League strugglers Southampton eyeing a move for their star striker, Che Adams.
The impressive Adams is the Blues’ top scorer this season, and his impressive form has not gone unnoticed, with the Saints looking to make their move this week, according to Alan Nixon.
It is claimed that the Blues could find any sort of offer in the region of what they value Adams at as hard to turn down, and manager Garry Monk will no doubt be determined to keep hold of his forward, who has already breached double figures for the season.

Adams has steadily improved at St Andrews since signing for the club from Sheffield United a few seasons back, and a move into Premier League football has been mentioned before, although no solid interest or bids have been reported.
The Saints are looking to bolster their striking ranks as they look to avoid a relegation back into the second tier under their new manager, and will see Adams as someone who can come into the squad and add pace, direct running, and cool finishing to the table.
This would be a huge blow for Birmingham but Adams is destined to get a move into the top flight at some point.
If it’s going to happen, then the Blues should push it through now, giving them at least some time to sign a replacement. A large bid will be needed though for sure, and it’s unlikely Monk will let Adams leave on the cheap if he can help it.
