Birmingham striker Che Adams is one of three players that Scotland manager Steve Clarke is keen to convince to change his international allegiances to The Tartan Army, The Daily Mail have reported.
Adams enjoyed an outstanding season with Birmingham during the last campaign, with a return of 22 goals in 46 league appearances leading to links with several Premier League sides, according to The Telegraph.
It now seems that Clarke is also interested in recruiting Adams, this time for an international cause, with Adams thought to be eligible to play for Scotland through his grandparents, despite making two appearances for England’s Under 20s side in 2015.
Along with Adams, Clarke is also said to be interested in converting Leicester City attacker Harvey Barnes and West Ham full back Ryan Fredericks to the Scottish cause.
Clarke, who took over from Alex McLeish as Scotland manager in May, won one and lost one of his first two games in charge of the national side in the recent international break, beating Cyprus 2-1 before losing 3-0 to Belgium in their back to back Euro 2020 qualifiers.
This may be tempting for Adams.
It seems unlikely that he will ever get the chance to represent England at full international level given the current age and calibre of the Three Lions’ current attackers, and Adams may be interested in pursuing international opportunities elsewhere.
If he can reproduce the sort of form he has showed for Birmingham recently with Scotland, you imagine there won’t be many north of the border too disappointed with Adams’ potential switch in allegiance.
