Chelsea in talks to sign Leeds midfielder Adams

Chelsea are in talks to sign Leeds' Tyler Adams as the club looks to sign two new midfielders this summer.

Adams, 24, is understood to have a £20m release clause and Chelsea are deciding whether to pay the amount or discuss a structured deal.

Brighton's Moises Caicedo remains the club's primary target and they were exploring a deal for Southampton's Romeo Lavia.

Adams signed for Leeds from RB Leipzig for a fee of around £20m last summer, but suffered relegation with the club in his first season. The USA international played 26 times in all competitions.

Chelsea are expected to go back in with an improved offer for Caicedo. He was given the weekend off amid the speculation over his future and missed Brighton's final pre-season game against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.
