Aston Villa joins Chelsea in the pursuit of midfielder Tyler Adams of Leeds United.

According to the Daily Mail (via Football London), Aston Villa will compete with Chelsea for Leeds United midfielder Tyler Adams this summer.

The release clause in the U.S. international’s contract was activated when Leeds were relegated at the end of the previous season. That could make it simpler for the purchasing clubs to sign him.

We are aware that Chelsea desires to strengthen their central midfield position prior to the start of the new season.

Moises Caicedo has been a top priority for the entire summer, but it has become quite difficult for the club to sign the Ecuadorian with Brighton.


Aston Villa will compete with Chelsea for Tyler Adams.

Recently, the Seagulls rejected an £80 million offer from the Blues for the 21-year-old. In line with what Arsenal paid for Declan Rice, they want more than $100 million.

Evening Standard previously reported that Chelsea is monitoring PSG midfielder Leandro Paredes as a Caicedo replacement. We can infer that Adams also belongs to this category.

Leeds acquired the American international from RB Leipzig for approximately £20 million approximately one year ago.

Despite the Yorkshire club’s relegation from the Premier League, the 24-year-old had a solid debut campaign. In addition, he had a successful World Cup in Qatar.


Adams’ release clause in his contract with Leeds was activated following the club’s relegation last season.

Adams is a defensive midfielder who, if necessary, can also play as a wide midfielder and right back.

He is a highly intense player on and off the field who prefers to take the initiative and move quickly.

He has the characteristics of an excellent midfielder under Mauricio Pochettino.

It remains to be seen whether Chelsea will stick with the Caicedo deal or pursue Adams aggressively before Aston Villa.
