Southampton are reportedly keen on making a move to sign Birmingham striker Che Adams this summer.

According to a report from the newspaper version of the Sunday Mercury, as cited in a report by HITC, Saints are one of several clubs taking an interest in the forward.

It’s stated by the Mercury that the recruitment team at St Mary’s have had their eye on Adams for some time now, with their scouting of the striker dating as far back as early 2016 before his move to St Andrew’s.
