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.
