Arsenal are keen to sign RB Leipzig and US international Tyler Adams, according to The Athletic.
The Gunners view the 22-year-old right back as a replacement for Hector Bellerin, who’s expected to part ways for PSG this summer.
Adams is a versatile player than can operate as a central midfielder as well. Overall, he complements Arteta’s inverted system, a style of play that allows a right back to play wide but also step inside à la Philipp Lahm.
Adams also covers a lot of ground and shows excellent composure on the ball, perhaps offering more than Maitland-Niles, Calum Chambers, or Cedric in a similar role.
But Arsenal will need to step up to the negotiating table if they’re to snatch Adams.
The American recently signed a contract until 2025 at RB Leipzig with no exit clause. The Bundesliga side will compete in the Champions League, which Arsenal can’t offer.
This upcoming season also sees Adam reunite with his former New York Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch. Marsch replaced Julian Nagelsmann, now the head coach at Bayern Munich.
