Southampton want to sign Birmingham City striker Che Adams in the summer. However, they are likely to face competition with Everton, Burnley, and Premier-League bound Norwich City also said to be interested in the forward.
The 22-year old joined Birmingham from Sheffield United in August 2016 for a fee of around £2 million, and has since established himself as one of the most prolific strikers in the Championship, scoring 38 times in 110 appearances for The Blues.
However, with the club facing financial difficulties after being docked nine points this season for breaching Football League rules on profitability and sustainability, Adams will almost certainly be leaving the club in the summer, and now it is a question of his next destination.
Southampton tried to sign him in January and, according to The Sun they are ready to revive their interest in the summer, although their hopes of landing him may be contingent on their continued Premier League survival.
