Ankit is a 24-year-old, aspiring to have his voice heard through what he writes. Charismatic and frankly moral, adhering to his principles and beliefs. Out to search for a purpose in life and yet to settle on that matter.

According to a report from Football.London, rumours have connected Chelsea with a potential move for Tyler Adams, the 24-year-old midfielder currently playing for Leeds United and the US Men’s National Team.

Adams made his transfer to England just last summer, departing RB Leipzig for a fee of £20 million ($25 million) to join Jesse Marsch’s team. However, Leeds United couldn’t avoid relegation from the Premier League despite his efforts.

Adams’ Campaign With Leeds United Last Season

Adams experienced a challenging season at Elland Road as Leeds United faced relegation from the Premier League. The United States international featured in 26 matches for the Whites during the last campaign, accumulating four yellow cards across various competitions.

Despite the difficulties, the 24-year-old deserves significant recognition for his commendable statistics in the Premier League, where he averaged 3.7 tackles, 1.5 interceptions, 1.0 clearances, and 1.0 key passes per 90 minutes. Additionally, his passing accuracy from midfield stood at an impressive 82.4% in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).

Could Adams Be The Right Fit For Chelsea?

Adams possesses a rugged style of play, excelling in well-timed challenges to regain possession for his team in the midfield. His ability to clear danger when necessary and create opportunities for his teammates in the opponent’s half showcases his impact on the pitch.

While primarily a holding midfielder, the American talent is versatile enough to function as a right-sided wide player under his manager’s guidance.

Mauricio Pochettino’s midfield could benefit from Adams’ tenacity and resilience, potentially boosting the Blues’ competitiveness across various competitions in the coming years.

At 24, Adams is entering his prime, making him an attractive option for the West London club this summer. His addition would strengthen Chelsea’s midfield depth at Stamford Bridge for the upcoming season. It would make perfect sense for Pochettino to pursue a move to bring Adams to Stamford Bridge during this summer transfer window.
