Speculation linking Che Adams with a move away from Birmingham City doesn’t seem to be going away, anytime soon.
According to Sky Sports, Birmingham previously turned down a £12m bid from Premier League side, Burnley late into the January transfer window.
It will come as no surprise to see Adams being linked with a move away from the Blues, as he has been in impressive form this season for Garry Monk’s side.
The in-demand forward has 21 league goals to his name, and will be confident of adding to that tally heading towards the conclusion of this year’s campaign.
Former Birmingham City and Aston Villa striker, Emile Heskey feels that Birmingham need to consider any offers for their in-form striker, especially in their current situation.
With quotes exclusively handed to Football League World by Bet O Clock, Heskey said:
“With the current squad and deductions, they’ve managed the team very well, but they’re going to get big offers for Che Adams and they’ve got to consider them.
Heskey also revealed the price that Birmingham should be commanding for Adams, and thinks it will be tough for the striker to turn down a move to the top-flight.
“They’ll get at least £15 million for him but then they won’t be able to spend it.
“Che is a player who has built his way up, so he’ll be aiming for the Premier League, and it’s going to be hard for him to turn down.”
Adams will be remaining focused on Birmingham’s survival this season for now, starting with a tough game against Leeds United this weekend.
I’d be stunned if he was still with Birmingham by the start of next season.
Adams has proved to everyone that he is a goalscorer and he would certainly be deserving of a move to the Premier League, and would be more than capable of adjusting to life in the top-flight.
Birmingham should be preparing for life without Adams in the near future.
