As per a report from the Mirror, Arsenal and Manchester United have joined a host of Premier League clubs expressing an interest in the signature of Birmingham City star Che Adams.
Adams, a 22-year-old striker, made the the move to Birmingham in the summer of 2016, after two years on the books of Sheffield United.
And the hitman has since gone on to establish himself as an absolute fan-favourite at St. Andrew’s, with his goalscoring exploits this season in particular having proven absolutely crucial to Birmingham’s hopes of securing a Championship playoff place.
After racking up 12 goals and 5 assists in the league over the last 2 seasons combined, Adams has taken his game to another level to this point in the current campaign.
In 32 Championship appearances (29 starts), the former English U20-international has notched 19 goals and 3 assists.

Premier League bound?
And, as per the aforementioned report from the Mirror, the Blues standout’s recent performances have certainly not gone unnoticed amongst the giants of the Premier League.
Scouts from Arsenal and Manchester United are said to have been present at Birmingham’s clash with Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday night, with Adams the focus of their attention.
As such, both clubs are thought to be considering summer offers for the gifted hitman.
The Gunners and Red Devils are far from the only Premier League sides to be keeping a close eye on Adams, though.
Burnley, Southampton and Watford are all also reported to be keen on the 22-year-old.
In Scotland, meanwhile, Celtic are also named as keen admirers of Adams’ talents.
