Chelsea 'will open talks' over deal for Leeds United's Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa and Everton-linked star Tyler Adams
Adams has been linked with numerous clubs throughout the summer, having impressed in his maiden Premier League campaign. He was at Elland Road for Leeds’ 2-2 draw with Cardiff City yesterday (August 6) but did not feature due to injury.
Chelsea are said to have approached the midfielder’s camp last week and are reportedly aware of a £20m relegation release clause in his contract. The Blues have also been heavily linked with Brighton & Hove Albion’s Moises Caicedo, although their Adams pursuit is said to be separate.
Romano tweeted: “After approaching player’s camp last week, Chelsea will open talks over Tyler Adams deal in the next days — informed on his £20m relegation clause It remains separated deal from Moisés Caicedo.”
The combative midfielder made a total of 26 appearances in all competitions for Leeds last season, playing under four head coaches having initially linked up with his former boss Jesse Marsch.
