Aston Villa are the latest club to express interest in Tyler Adams.

Unai Emery’s side are ready to compete with Everton and other clubs for the Leeds United midfielder’s signature, according to The Athletic.

Adams looks likely to leave Elland Road this summer after an impressive debut season in the Premier League.

The midfielder also enjoyed an impressive World Cup campaign in which he faced England in their 0-0 draw.

Writing on Twitter after the match, Jamie Carragher said: “A draw was a fair result, the energy of Adams and [Weston] Mckennie was excellent and Pulisic showed his class at times.”

However, the US international went onto miss out on the final months of the campaign due to injury and Leeds were eventually relegated to the Championship.

Aston Villa join Everton, Nottingham Forest and Brighton in their pursuit of Adams – with the latter reportedly leading the chase.

While Aston Villa have recently snapped up Youri Tielemans on a free transfer and already have a number of talented midfielders, Villa Park still seems like a more desirable destination for Tyler Adams than Merseyside.

Emery’s side are set to feature in the Europa Conference League this season and there is currently plenty of positivity around the club since the Spaniard’s arrival in November.

Everton is quite the opposite and it seems unlikely that Adams would want to participate in a relegation battle again, while he is certainly capable of competing in Europe.

The Toffees won’t want to get involved in a bidding war either, because there is no doubt that Villa would win that one.

Sean Dyche‘s side may have to accept defeat in their pursuit of the Leeds United man, with matching Brighton’s bid already looking difficult.

However, if Amadou Onana chooses to leave Goodison Park then they are going to have to speed up their search for a midfielder with a bit more cash in hand.
