Cardiff City are considering a move for Sheffield United forward Che Adams, according to FLW sources.
The 18-year-old joined Sheffield United in November last year from non-league side Ilkeston and made 13 appearances last season in all competitions, scoring three goals – and FLW understands that Cardiff boss Russell Slade is an admirer of the up and coming prospect.
However, it currently remains uncertain whether new Sheffield United manager Nigel Adkins will be willing to let the forward leave this summer.
Two of his three goals were against Tottenham Hotspur in the second-leg of the League Cup semi-final when the youngster came off the bench to score twice in five minutes to level the tie.
The Blades had beaten the likes of Huddersfield Town, Peterborough United and Crewe Alexandra to his signature, and it was reported that at one match he played for Ilkeston he had 45 scouts at the game to watch him.
Adams, who has a year left on his current deal at Bramall Lane, is rated at £350,000 according to transfermarkt.co.uk.
The Leicester-born forward, who was on the books at Coventry City as a youngster, scored nine goals in 16 games prior to his move to Sheffield United, and was also called up to the England national C team last summer.
