Tyler Adams Nears Chelsea Switch from Leeds United

Chelsea are set to complete the signing of Leeds United midfielder Tyler Adams after triggering a £20million release clause in the American’s contract.

The Yorkshire club signed Adams from RB Leipzig 12 months ago for a fee of around £19m.

However, Adams has made it clear that he wants to leave Elland Road following the club’s relegation to the Championship.

The 24-year-old, who is known for his tenacity out of possession, has a £20m release clause in his contract.

And Sky Sports say Chelsea triggered that clause on Thursday, with Adams set to undergo a medical in the next 48 hours.

It comes after Chelsea submitted a £48m bid to beat Liverpool to the signature of Romeo Lavia.

Southampton are believed to be holding out for £50m for the midfielder, having rejected three proposals from Liverpool.

Chelsea remain keen to sign Moises Caicedo from Brighton but the club are not moving from their £100m valuation of the Ecuador ace.

The Blues have submitted two bids for Caicedo, the last of which was around £80m.
