Everton have recently been linked to the Leeds United trio of Jack Harrison, Crysencio Summerville and Wilfried Gnonto. Now, the fourth Leeds player has been linked with the Toffees as midfielder Tyler Adams is on the radar of several Premier League clubs.
With Leeds suffering relegation, a fire sale is certain as some of the best talents of the squad will be on the radars of Premier League clubs. Everton would have suffered the same fate but they managed to escape the drop on the final day of the Premier League season. Leeds have a number of young, exciting players that have impressed despite the team’s inefficiency to operate as a unit.
With Tom Davies leaving as a free agent and Idrissa Gueye into the final year of his deal, EFC are planning to reinforce the midfield. Sean Dyche preferred a midfield three of Abdoulaye Doucoure, Amadou Onana and Gueye. James Garner did get minutes towards the end of the season and is a reliable option to have in the midfield. Onana’s future remains up in the air as Arsenal and Chelsea hold an interest in the Belgian.
Everton interested in Leeds United midfielder Tyler Adams
Gueye joined EFC in the summer of 2022, signing a two year deal with an option for a further year. The Toffees are already plotting for a successor to Gueye and they have located a successor in Leeds United’s Adams. According to Daily Mail, USMNT star Adams is on the list of several Premier League clubs.
The 24 year old could instantly make a return to the Premier League as Brighton lead the race to sign Adams. Everton are also keen on the midfielder but will face immense competition from the likes of Brighton, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest. Leeds United value Adams at £25 million as they look to make a profit on his sale, with the USMNT captain arriving last season from RB Leipzig for £20 million.
According to another report from TEAMtalk, Adams has already communicated his desire to leave Leeds and play in the Premier League next season. His desire could well work in favour of clubs like Everton and Brighton, however, the Toffees will trail in the race as the Seagulls and Villa can offer European football.
It is unlikely that EFC will land all four Leeds United players they have been linked to. Given their financial situation, the Merseysiders do need to sell and generate funds for a rebuild under Dyche.
Is Tyler Adams a realistic target for Everton?
