Leeds Utd facing fight to keep prized summer signing with Serie A giants dreaming of ambitious raid

Tyler Adams is attracting interest from other clubs just months after he signed for Leeds United, with one report from Italy explaining how he could end up in Serie A.

Leeds brought in Adams from RB Leipzig over the summer, reuniting him with head coach Jesse Marsch. After the departure of Kalvin Phillips from the Leeds midfield, there has been some big responsibility for the USMNT player.

However, Adams has adjusted well to his new challenge so far. He has started all but one of Leeds’ 14 Premier League fixtures up until the break for the World Cup.

Although yet to provide a goal or assist for his new club, Adams has earned praise for the other qualities he is bringing to Marsch’s midfield.

With that in mind, there have already been suggestions of where Adams could go next. For example, Manchester United have been linked with the 23-year-old, although TEAMtalk has been told Leeds have nothing to fear in that regard right now.

Still, other suitors are cropping up for Adams, who has started both of the USA’s group matches at the World Cup so far.

According to La Gazzetta Dello Sport, one admirer of Adams is Inter Milan. In fact, the Nerazzurri’s sporting director Piero Ausilio has been watching the midfielder in Qatar.

Ausilio has liked what he has seen, justifying why Adams was already on Inter’s shortlist. However, after Leeds tied him down to a contract until 2027, it won’t be easy for them to prise him away immediately.

Inter have been looking at other options too, like Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister and another USA international, Valencia’s Yunus Musah, per the report.

But Adams appeals due to his leadership qualities and the way he has quickly acclimatised to his new challenge with Leeds.

Tyler Adams should stay at Leeds for now

It would be a blow for the West Yorkshire side to lose Adams so soon. Hence, they will likely want to stand firm over his future.

As for Adams, the challenge of testing himself in Serie A might be worth considering at some point. He has already played in two of Europe’s other top five leagues, the Bundesliga and the Premier League.

But for now, he should be focusing on building up his reputation further with Leeds. There are plenty of years ahead in his career for him to experience other surroundings, but he ought to try and continue the current spell of form he has been in at Elland Road.

Beyond that, Adams might get to step back up to a Champions League stage, but there will be no harm in cementing his importance – and perhaps increasing his transfer value – with Leeds in the meantime.
