Bournemouth have activated Leeds United man Tyler Adams’ release clause, but Liverpool remain interested in the midfielder, as per 90min.
Adams, 24, made 26 appearances for Leeds United across all competitions last season.
The United States international signed for the Whites just last summer from RB Leipzig in Germany and he was able to show his quality last season.
The versatile midfielder can play several roles in that area, but despite having not long made the move to Elland Road it seems he may be on the move again with several sides interested this summer.
Chelsea were said to have activated his release clause just last week, but they cancelled that move to pursue Romeo Lavia and Moises Caicedo instead.
Now, Fabrizio Romano has claimed Bournemouth are the latest side to activate the £20million release clause as they seek a move for the midfielder this summer.

However, despite seemingly the furthest club along in a deal for Adams, Bournemouth could still face competition as 90min report Liverpool still have interest in the Leeds United man.
Another twist to come?
Bournemouth are said to be in negotiations with Adams’ camp in an attempt to strike an agreement to bring him to the south coast this window.
But, Liverpool are in dire need of a midfielder, particularly a holding midfielder and should they decide to also activate the release clause then the Cherries may find this deal almost impossible to pull off.
Daniel Farke could be losing another big name from his squad and Adams likely won’t be the only one to depart between now and the deadline in September.
The Whites were hoping for an immediate return to the Premier League, but their start to the season has shown signs they may be some distance away from the quality required to mount a serious promotion push this season.
