- Midfielder moved to England in 2022
- Being linked with a number of clubs
- Hammers need cover for departing skipper
WHAT HAPPENED? The United States international midfielder arrived in English football during the summer of 2022 when completing a move to Leeds. An unfortunate injury brought his debut campaign to a premature conclusion and prevented him from aiding what was ultimately an unsuccessful bid to avoid suffering relegation out of the Premier League.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: USMNT star Adams, who captained his country at the World Cup finals in Qatar, is expected to leave Elland Road in the current window. He has been linked with a number of sides – with Nottingham Forest, Newcastle and Aston Villa all said to have expressed interest – but the Yorkshire Evening Post has confirmed that West Ham now form part of that clamour.
AND WHAT'S MORE: The Hammers are preparing to part with England international midfielder Rice in a £105 million ($133m) agreement with Arsenal. As he heads for the exits, suitable cover will be required in east London. West Ham have also been linked with Juventus star Denis Zakaria – who spent last season on loan at Chelsea – and Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse.
