Reports Suggest Che Adams Will Remain At St Mary's This Season
Friday, 19th Jan 2024 14:12

Southampton have report ably put a £6 million price tag on Che Adams head should he leave this January, but it seems that even at this knockdown price, the buyers are yet to put in an offer and Saints could well opt to keep him at St Mary's.

Che Adams obviously feels that his place is in the Premier League, hence he turned down the offer of a new contract at the start of the season and ended up staying for the first part of the season.

With his current deal up in the summer, you would have thought that a few potential suitors would step forward, especially as the asking price now is said to be as low as £6 million, roughly the price that Saints would have to pay to bring in the likes of Aberdeen's Bojan Miovski or Hearts Laurence Shankland, two strikers from Scotland linked with the club should Adams leave.

Southampton seem relaxed about the situation, but with the need for a striker at the head of their list, be it Che Adams or a new man, it seems that the club will not be held to ransom and although they might well accept an offer that is acceptable, they will not do so unless they have tied up a replacement first, therefore letting Che Adams go on deadline day is unlikely. are quoting Talksport's Alex Crook who is claiming that it is now highly likely that Adams will still be a Saints player come the end of the transfer window.

It seems both Saints and Adams himself are happy to see where the situation leads, the player can now see that Saints have a real chance of regaining their Premier League status and that being the case is prepared to hang on and then talk about contracts if and when the club are promoted.

But he is also open to offers and should Wolves or Crystal Palace, two of the potential suitors come up with the cash, then he will consider it, it seems that Everton who were heavily linked ar now not in the running and even if they were with further points deductions in the pipeline for the Toffee's, Adams might see that his chances of Premier League football next season are better with Southampton than Everton.

But I would also expect a late offer for Adams, to be blunt £6 million is peanuts for a player with Adams experience, but Saints seem to be very clear here, they are prepared to let him leave in the summer for free rather than cash in now if they have not tied up an adequate replacement.

In my opinion it makes sense to keep Che and, if necessary, let him go for free at the end of the season. £6m is peanuts compared to the financial benefits of getting back to the Premier League.

Che has always been a grafter and at this level we know he can score If we go up however a striker who gets 4/5 a season isn't going to keep us there
Personally I would keep him and if he signs on promotion we would still be able to cash in
