EXCLUSIVE: Spurs join race as Birmingham place huge fee on Che Adams

Che Adams TEAMtalk

TEAMtalk can reveal that Birmingham star Che Adams will be granted his wish of a Premier League transfer in the summer.

The Championship frontman has been earning rave reviews this season with 19 goals to his name, including a recent hat-trick at QPR which had clubs flooding to see him in action this month.

The Daily Mirror claimed Manchester United, Arsenal, Celtic and Watford all had representatives at St Andrew’s recently to watch the 22-year-old in action against Bolton. And TEAMtalk can reveal that Tottenham, Everton, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Newcastle have also scouted the player in recent weeks.

Burnley saw numerous bids for the player rejected in January, while Southampton are also believed to have enquired about the talented forward, who Blues apparently wanted £15million for.

The Championship club were unwilling to offload him last month, but they are open to selling the ambitious former Sheffield United man in the summer.

Birmingham though want £20million for a player they paid just £2million to the Blades for in 2016, but Blues will have little problem in securing such a fee for the player.

Adams, who is under contract until 2022, began his career in non-league before being snapped up by Sheffield United from Ilkeston in 2014.
