As the final month of the transfer window gets going, a new striker is a priority for both Leeds United and Nottingham Forest, who are both looking to bolster their attacking options.
Steve Cooper recently signed Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin, but is still looking to add another forward to his newly promoted squad.
Whites manager Jesse Marsch is eager to add a backup for Patrick Bamford, who was injured for a significant portion of the previous season.
Both clubs have identified 26-year-old Scottish international Adams as a player of interest, but Forest have gone one step further.
It has been claimed that the Tricky Trees have made an enquiry regarding Adams’ availability to Southampton.
Last season the centre-forward made 30 Premier League appearances for the Saints while netting seven goals and assisting three times.
Former Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa tried to sign Adams in the 2020/21 season but was unable to poach him away from St Mary’s Stadium.
It remains to be seen whether the Whites make a move for the Scot or Nottingham Forest will snare him away from the Saints in the ongoing transfer window.
