Leeds consider swoop for 2nd United States international20 June 2022
Word stemming from the German media on Monday suggests that Leeds United are considering a move for another compatriot of manager Jesse Marsch.
The latest United States international being eyed by the transfer team at Elland Road? Tyler Adams.
As per a report from the reliable Florian Plettenburg of Sky Sport in Germany, versatile midfielder Adams is ‘on the shortlist’ of transfer targets at Leeds ahead of next season.
Not only that, but it is also suggested that RB Leipzig ‘want to sell’ the 23-year-old, meaning a sufficient offer on the part of the Premier League outfit would likely give rise to a swift agreement between the clubs.
Adams, for his part, racked up 37 appearances across all competitions this past season, 12 of which came in the form of Bundesliga starts.
The New York native lined out largely in a deep-lying midfield role, but also, on occasion, showcased his versatility in filling in at all of centre-back, right-back and on the right of midfield.

Should Adams ultimately go on to link up with Leeds over the coming weeks, he would of course join a quickly growing American contingent amongst the first-team setup in west Yorkshire.
This comes with boss Marsch having already overseen a deal for Red Bull Salzburg talent Brenden Aaronson this summer.
Elsewhere, in what has proven a busy opening to the window on the part of the Whites, both Rasmus Kristensen and Marc Roca have also been brought in, from RB Salzburg and Bayern Munich respectively.
