Wolves and Nottingham Forest remain the favourites in
the race for Che Adams – despite interest from Italy, the MLS and Saudi Arabia.

The 27-year-old is available on a free transfer and is yet to sign a new contract at Southampton, although the Saints have been in
talks over a new deal.

The forward has options abroad, including in Serie A, but Molineux or the City Ground are currently the most likely destinations.

Adams is with the Scotland squad preparing
for Friday’s Euro 2024 opener with hosts Germany in Munich – having scored in last week’s 2-0 warm-up win in Gibraltar – and his future is unlikely to be resolved before the start of the tournament.

Last season he helped Southampton to an instant return to the Premier League after winning the Championship play-offs.

He scored 18 goals in all competitions as the Saints, under Russell
Martin, finished fourth before beating Leeds 1-0 in the play-off final last month.

Since a £15m move from Birmingham in 2019 Adams has
netted 49 goals in 191 appearances.
