Arsenal strongly linked with €20m-rated versatile Bundesliga star

Arsenal interested in Leipzig’s Adams

Arsenal are tracking Red Bull Leipzig’s American midfielder Tyler Adams, according to The Athletic.

The 22-year-old, who can also be deployed as a right-back, made 37 appearances for the German side in the last campaign.

The report suggested: One of the appealing factors about Adams is that he can play both as a right-back and as a central midfielder, which makes him a good fit for Arteta’s “inverted” system on that flank.

In the most recent season, the young defender played 20 games at the defensive midfield position, 14 at the right-midfield and two at right-back.

Adams, who has 14 appearances for United States, has impressed in Germany since his move from New York Red Bulls to Leipzig in 2019.

He is currently valued at €20.00m by the Transfermarkt, which is a decent fee for a versatile player.

However, signing Adams would be complicated in the present transfer window. Leipzig, who came second in Bundesliga in the 2020/21 campaign, has already lost defenders such as Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahim Konate.

Thus, a deal for the American may be pursued at a later date.

The report further stated that it is the left-back slot where the situation is “particularly complex.”

The club have an uphill struggle to convince someone of playing second fiddle to established team member Kieran Tierney.

Keeping Sead Kolasinac by extending his contract on reduced terms might be the best option, in a market where Arsenal already have huge task on their hands.

    Kolasinac has only one serious weekness ,namely that when every player is already engaged and on the move heading forward, Kolasinac will kill the pace by slowing to back pass the ball behind either to the goal keeper or a close defence play.
    This kills the counter attacking momentum..The will either lose the ball and start rebuilding or risk the opponent scoring Arsenal.
    This is his major set back. Kolasinac is Less ambitious to win. Unlike KT who wants to win at all cost.. If the coach can work on Kolasinac then he can
    be given another trial. Forward Ever and Backward Passes Never (Kolasinac)

    Only 20M for this young, versatile player would be a much better investment than 40M for the over-hyped Bissouma. We can’t afford to repeat the 45M Partey fiasco again.

    I don’t think, there is a footballer in America don’t waste time , and colasnac is a lazy man who can’t fight, and is like broiler to heavy , thirdly even if he is in the mouth of the goal he can’t score a goal so we don’t need him at a club like arsenal
