With long standing speculation about Southampton’s interest in Birmingham City striker Che Adams going back to the January window where they simply wouldn’t sell, as the summer approached the rumour mill quickly geared back up and claimed that we continued to have an interest in the 22 goals, 22-year-old talent.
With £8million not being enough at the turn of the year, many believe that having got their Financial Fair Play troubles somewhat behind them, with a points deduction as punishment, Birmingham will certainly cash in this summer and the question is simply how much.
Daily Echo journalist Adam Blackmore took to social media on Friday to give fans an update on the Adams speculation, and he also revealed that given the rumours about Moussa Djenepo, he could actually be confirmed by Tuesday.
Back from holiday..#saintsfc still negotiating with Birmingham for Che Adams
Club hopeful of completing Djenepo signing by Tuesday
Contrary to reports, Saints have not had any contact with Serie B club Spezia over Nigerian forward David Okereke – one to watch maybe …

Plenty I imagine would definitely welcome the arrival of Adams as he certainly seems to tick the boxes manager Ralph Hasenhuttl wants moving forward, and it would be good to see some real movement now in the coming weeks rather than just the speculation.
