Could Tyler Adams find his way to the Premier League this summer? The U.S. star is said to be a target of Arsenal during the current transfer window.

According to The Athletic, Adams has caught the eye of the Gunners because of his ability to play both right-back and central midfield. His versatility and technical ability would make him a great fit for Mikel Arteta’s demands of a full-back in his system. Despite the reported interest, RB Leipzig are said to be reluctant to sell the American.

This could partly be due to the fact that Jesse Marsch is entering the picture as manager and has a great relationship with Adams from their time together in MLS.

The 22-year-old had a season to forget in 2020-21 as he was plagued by injuries and falling down Leipzig’s pecking order under Julian Nagelsmann. Now with a more familiar manager coming in, it’s setting up to be a more promising campaign for Adams in the fall.

What do you make of this rumor? Would it make sense for Adams to move to England? Or would you like to see him get a chance to play under his former manager in the Bundesliga?
