Southampton to rival Bournemouth in race to sign Sheffield United striker



Premier League clubs Southampton and Bournemouth have entered the race to sign promising Sheffield United forward Che Adams, according to the Mirror.


Adams moved to the Blades 18 months ago from non-league Ilkeston and has since gone to become a first team regular, scoring seven goals this season.

The teenager shot to stardom during United’s league cup run last season when he scored two goals against Tottenham Hotspur during the semi-final.

He also impressed in the performances that followed, forcing then manager Nigel Clough to select him on a regular basis.

Adams has found himself out of the team over the last two months, after a red card and off pitch issue forced Nigel Adkins’ hand, but it is obvious he has the talent to progress.

Ronaldo Koeman is thought to have been impressed with what he saw during their own cup tie with the Blades last season, while Eddie Howe is keen to explore all the options available to him in the lower leagues.

Adams, who the Blades value between the £2m and £3m mark, would find it hard to turn down the chance to move to the Premier League so soon after playing non-league football. United on the other hand, may want to cash in on another prized asset as they look to reshape their squad.
