Birmingham City manager Garry Monk has a real challenge on his hands if he is to hold onto striker Che Adams, amid reports that up to 12 Premier League clubs are interested in the 22-year-old, as reported in The Mirror.
The striker has been in great form for the Blues this season, scoring 13 goals and making three assists in 27 appearances for the club this season.
With all this Premier League interest in mind, is Che Adams good enough to play in the Premier League?
“Yes, why not?
“He’s doing well at the top of the Championship, I’m sure he’d do a job at Bournemouth or Huddersfield.
“I wouldn’t see him going to Chelsea, but he’s got the attributes to succeed in the top flight.”
“I’m not convinced yet.
“He is certainly a very good Championship player but I would like to see him prove himself more consistently in the second-tier before moving up the ranks.
“So many times we see strikers too good for the second-tier but not good enough for top-flight. Adams needs to make sure he does not fall into that trap.”
“He has the hallmarks of being able to make the step up.
“Other players in a similar ilk to his have been at his level in the Championship and have had a risk taken on them, and they have paid dividends.
“You never know until you try, but Adams is quick, strong, powerful and clinical in front of goal.
“I think given a half a chance; he could well be prolific in the top flight.
“He reminds me of a hybrid of Troy Deeney and Andre Grey – so if he can play as half as well as the two, he will be alright.”
