SportBILD (via Sport Witness) report that Arsenal are interested in RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams, but they’d have to pay his €40m release clause to sign him.

Leipzig are aware that a few of their players are hoping to use the club as a springboard onto bigger clubs, but they want to make sure they maximise their profits from any sales.

The Athletic reported over the summer that Arsenal were pursuing Adams. Adams can also play on the right, which seemingly makes him an ideal fit for Mikel Arteta’s system often using inverted full-backs.

CBS Sports added at the time that Arsenal are indeed interested, but so are other clubs in the Premier League.

Adams has made 13 appearances for Leipzig this season, after making 37 in the last campaign. He’s also a United States international, even captaining the side in the past.

A strong passer in possession and a good presser out of it, he certainly sounds like Arteta’s kind of player. But he’s not going to come cheap, and it’s not clear yet whether Arsenal will have funds to spare in January – following a busy summer window.
