Leeds United interested in RB Leipzig’s Tyler Adams

According to Florian Plettenberg of Sky Germany, RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams is on the shortlist of Premier League side Leeds United despite the recent transfers of Brenden Aaronson and Marc Roca.

The Bundesliga side are open to selling the 23-year-old central-midfielder, even more so given Friday’s signing of Xaver Schlager from Wolfsburg for €12m. The Austrian wasn’t a replacement for Konrad Laimer, as originally suggested, but instead comes in with Adams and Amadou Haidara allowed to leave the Bundesliga club.

Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch knows Adams well from their time together at New York Red Bulls, as well as Marsch’s short tenure in charge of RB Leipzig last season before being replaced by Domenico Tedesco.

Adams played 36 games in all competitions for RB Leipzig last season and has played 102 games in all competitions since his €2.5m move from NYRB in January 2019. 

The American made an appearance in last season’s DFB Pokal final as RB Leipzig lifted their first major trophy.
