Birmingham City are. demanding £15 million for Che Adams, who Southampton pursued in the January transfer window, according to The Evening Standard.

The Saints were heavily linked with a move to sign the 22-year-old midway through the campaign but failed to convince the Blues to let go of their top goalscorer. 

Adams has been in fine form in the Championship. He has scored an impressive total of 22 goals and has contributed with four assists.

Following Southampton’s failure to recruit the ex-Sheffield United youngster in January, reports indicated that they would make a revised summer swoop for the player should they secure Premier League survival this season. 

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men are on the cusp of safety, and with Birmingham apparently valuing Adams at £15m, a summer move could be on the cards. 

Crystal Palace, however, are understood to have identified the Blues star as their top target ahead of next season, as Roy Hodgson looks to remedy his team’s goalscoring woes.

Why a summer move for Adams makes sense
