Fulham and Crystal Palace inquire about Southampton’s Che Adams, with the Scotland striker keen to stay in the Premier League ahead of Euro 2024
- Fulham and Crystal Palace have inquired about Southampton’s Che Adams
- The Scotland striker is expected to leave St. Mary’s after their relegation
- He is keen on remaining in the Premier League ahead of next year’s Euro 2024
Fulham and Crystal Palace have asked about Southampton striker Che Adams, 27.
The Saints are regrouping under Russell Martin as they look to bounce straight back up from the Championship – but expect to lose more players after relegation.
If Southampton sell Adams to one of the interested London clubs, they expect to make around £15m for him – and the 27-year-old is thought to be ‘keen’ on remaining in the Premier League to boost his chances of Euro 2024.
Adams made his Scotland debut in 2021, and featured in the country’s group stage games at the Euro 2020 tournament that summer.
The striker has one year left on his contract at St Mary’s – and could be a timely addition to the Premier League squads of either the Cottagers or the Eagles.

Fulham may need a replacement striker to fill the whole left by Aleksandar Mitrovic, as they fend off offers from Saudi Pro League side Al-Hilal.
Crystal Palace will also look to bolster their frontline for the new season under Roy Hodgson, who has confirmed he will remain in charge for the forthcoming campaign.
The Eagles scored just 40 Premier League goals in their 38 fixtures last season, and will require more goalscorers if they want to avoid the risk of relegation.
In May, Mail Sport reported on claims that Nottingham Forest were eyeing up Adams as an addition to their side as they prepare for another Premier League season.
Adams scored 10 goals and registered three assists in 35 Southampton appearances last season.
Martin’s Southampton side begin their Championship challenge away to Sheffield Wednesday on August 4, before a League Cup trip to Gillingham four days later.
