Per a report from 90min, Tyler Adams is the subject of a transfer approach from West Ham, with the Hammers in the market for a Declan Rice replacement. The England international is expected to complete a bumper £105 million move to Arsenal very soon.

Previous reports had linked USMNT international Adams with other top flight clubs such as Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa and Newcastle United.

Leeds were understood to have the option to buy the 24-year old but are believed to have turned it down mainly due to their relegation from the Premier League but also due to the midfielder’s lackluster performances in the Premier League. McKennie started his senior career with Dortmund’s fierce rivals Schalke 04.
