Manchester United and Arsenal join the queue of clubs looking at Birmingham City striker Che Adams.

The 22-year-old has been on fire for the Blues this season and has scored 19 goals in the Championship so far which has put him firmly on the radar of Premier League clubs, according to The Mirror.

Top flight sides such as Burnley, Southampton, Leicester City and Watford have been linked with him over recent months. Scottish Premiership champions Celtic are also now being mentioned having sent representatives to watch him in action.

Manchester United and Arsenal are both underperforming in this campaign and may see Adams as someone who can really push on and become a top player in the future.

The Leicester-born forward started his career as a youngster with spells at Coventry City, St Andrews FC and Oadby Town before getting his big break at Ilkeston Town. He impressed for the non-league side and had many Football League clubs chasing him.

It was Sheffield United who won the race to sign him in 2014. Adams broke into their first-team and went onto play 55 times for the Blades, scoring 15 goals in League One.

Birmingham then moved to sign him in 2016 for a fee believed to be around £2 million. Adams has since been a regular for the Blues and scored seven in his first season at St Andrews followed by nine in the last campaign.

He has pace, power and has proven he can score goals at this level so looks well equipped to make the step up into the Premier League, but surely a move to either Arsenal or United is a step too far?
